The Callisto Protocol trailer featured at Gamescom provides more insight into the game – Since it’s first reveal back at The Game Awards in 2020, The Callisto Protocol has slowly garnered attention among the gaming community. It has been developed by Striking Game Studios and will be published by Krafton. This survival horror game shows Krafton’s interest in branching out from the FPS genre and expanding to other popular games.
The latest trailer of the game was released yesterday at the Opening Night Live of Gamescom 2022. Let us take a look at this much-awaited game by Krafton.
The Callisto Protocol: Game Overview
The Callisto Protocol game is set in the year 2320 at a prison colony called Black Iron. This colony is operated by the United Jupiter Company and is located on Jupiter’s moon Callisto. The player enters the game as Jacob Lee, a prisoner being held at Black Iron.
But things soon turn horrifying as the base gets invaded by an alien invasion and the entire course of the event is seemingly engineered by the prison’s warden.
The Callisto Protocol: Why there is so much hype?
Some might be confused about why there is so much hype about the game now. It is because the game is being helmed by Glen Schofield, who had previously co-created the award-winning Dead Space game series. That game received a high 8.7 rating by IGN and an 88% score by Metacritic.
Not only Scholfield but other notable figures who were a part of the Dead Space game series have also worked on this project. Some of the key figures are Steve Papoutsis, who also co-developed the Dead Space series; Scott Whitney, a designer on the Dead Space series; and Christopher Stone, the animation director for the former series.
Schofield says that out of the 150 employees of Striking Distance Studio, about 25 to 30 are former coworkers from Visceral Games and Sledgehammer Games. These employees have high experience in working with the survival horror genre.
