In the game, players will head to Jupiter’s dead moon, Calisto, in the year 2320. On that planet, players must escape the Black Iron Prison while uncovering secrets about the United Jupiter Company. In doing so, players must be able to use tactics, gun-skills and close quarters combat as a mysterious outbreak takes over Callisto. Josh Duhamel and Karen Fukuhara, of The Boys, are just two of the stars involved. The developers will release more information on the cast soon.

Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance Studio, stated, “Survival horror games have been my passion for decades, and I’m excited to take advantage of the latest consoles to take the genre to terrifying new places when we ship The Callisto Protocol later this year.” C.H. Kim, CEO of KRAFTON, stated, “The team at Striking Distance Studios are masters of their craft, and we are thrilled to share The Callisto Protocol with the world later this year.”

It is clear that the minds behind the project are trying to put a new twist on a popular genre.
