The Callisto Protocol - Dec 2, 2022Horror Pc Games Upcoming The Callisto Protocol
Clarification: We originally suggested a February 12, 2023 release date for The Callisto Protocol. It was an error, and we're happy to clarify that the game is currently scheduled for a December 2, 2022 release.
Body horror meets survival horror in one of the most hostile, isolated environments in the universe: Black Iron Prison on the moon of Callisto. In the midst of a mysterious outbreak that’s turning the inmates into vicious, mangled creatures, players will fight hand-to-hand against the grotesque opponents. It’s a brutal place where having limbs hacked off will only slow them down, and the environments can help or hurt the player in horrendous fashion.
