Who The Callisto Protocol developer?
Striking Distance Studios is a new team created by industry veteran Glen Schofield, credited as one of the creators of the original. Dead space. The Callisto Protocol it’s the studio’s first game, but you wouldn’t know that based on what’s been shown so far.
Krafton will act as editor for this project, best known for working on PUBG. Curiously, The Callisto Protocol was initially set on the PUBG universe, but then yarn to his own world.
“Survival horror games have been my passion for decades, and I’m excited to harness the latest consoles to take the genre to new and terrifying places when we launch. The Callisto Protocol later this year,” Schofield said.
What is The Callisto Protocol history?
This game sends players to Jupiter’s dead moon, the titular Callisto, during the year 2320. In it, you play as Jacob Lee, a cargo ship pilot trapped inside Black Iron Prison. Your goal is to escape from prison while discovering the dark truth behind the United Jupiter Company.
what will it be The Callisto Protocol gameplay be like?
This game will combine survival and horror mechanics with third person shooting, just like Dead space. In it, you will have to search for resources while exploring the deadly Black Iron Prison, all while surviving against the terrifying enemies known as Biophages. The protagonist Lee will have access to a wide variety of weapons such as a pistol, a shotgun, or a baton, along with a gravitational device that allows him to push and pull objects (such as Half lifemaybe?).
During a game informer interview (as broadcast by GameSpot), The Callisto Protocol Design director Ben Walker said he wants fear to be at the center of the experience. “We want you to be afraid of individual enemies.”
“All of these tools that we built for Jacob are to deal with difficulty instead of getting to the end of, ‘Hey, you can kill all this cool stuff, now let’s make some enemies.’ We did it the other way around for that very reason. You feel scared and you have to make the right decisions at the right time.”
Schofield also mentioned that The Callisto Protocol It will borrow many ideas from Dead space, like the diegetic HUD. Instead of putting a nasty health bar on the HUD, Lee’s HP is displayed on his suit, which makes the game feel more immersive. We expect other mechanics to return, such as the gut-wrenching sidewalk stomp.
The Callisto Protocol launches for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in December 2022.
