The Callisto Protocol Gets New Trailer, Starring Karen Fukuhara From The Boys

The Callisto Protocol has just received an in-engine trailer ahead of its launch on December 2. New footage from developer Striking Distance Studios focuses on the thematic and story aspects, in addition to introducing a new character played by Karen Fukuhara – known primarily for her role in the Prime Video series, The Boys. The title will be supported with patches for at least a year, with DLC investments planned for later. Callisto Protocol launches across all major platforms – PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series S/X and Xbox One.

From the creators of Dead Space, the trailer for The Callisto Protocol is modeled after a survival horror game, as you embark on a deadly journey through an intergalactic space sewage system. Set in the year 2320 on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto, players assume the role of Jacob Lee (Josh Duhamel), a victim of fate who has been thrown into the Black Iron Prison, a maximum-security penitentiary. As mysterious events turn the prisoners into monstrous, zombie-like creatures, Jacob is tasked with uncovering a conspiracy and battling the process.

Appropriately titled “The Truth of Black Iron,” the Callisto Protocol trailer hints at a treason—supposedly caused by tentacled alien parasites—to break into the prison and ensure bloodshed. Jacob tells Fukuhara’s unnamed character, “It’s as if someone is trying to hide what’s going on here, while we are treated with notes of dead prisoners. Arrival causes the surviving colony to evacuate to the moon, leaving prisoners in cramped holding cells – essentially turning into a wasteland. The trailer offers a brief glimpse at its development/turning process, where the parasite takes on a hostile form. A host bites and possesses the body while ingesting.

In addition to guns, players are equipped with melee weapons and telekinesis, allowing you to capture enemies from afar, and dodge them with sharp razors and heavy doors. Like Dead Space, The Callisto Protocol relies heavily on dismemberment, allowing you to rip off limbs, raising the ESRB rating to a mature 17+. The game will come with ray-tracing support in addition to AMD’s FSR 2.0 (Fidelity Super Resolution), which uses a temporal upscaling solution to boost framerates.

Callisto Protocol launches on December 2 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One and PC. Pre-orders are now live across all platforms except the Epic Games Store.
