The First Gameplay Trailer for The Callisto Protocol is Gory AF

The Callisto Protocol

At tonight’s Summer Game Fest 2022, we’ve got our eyes on the first gameplay footage for The Callisto Protocol. And we’re absolutely here for it.

From Striking Distance Studios and Krafton, The Callisto Protocol is essentially a spiritual successor to Dead Space; it’s coming from the same creator, after all. Every trailer we’ve seen of this game so far gets us more and more excited, but after seeing gameplay – in all its gory, brilliant detail – it’s quickly shot to the top of our ‘must play’ list.

In the gameplay clip, we see our character make his way through an abandoned ship. After encountering some sort of hologram video, it isn’t long before he’s met by a couple of enemies. Undead, gory and out for blood, our hero wastes no time in shooting and smashing them. Guts everywhere. A bit of head-bashing for good measure. Needless to say, it’s not for the faint-hearted.

Making your way around the ship, you’re never far away from more danger. And it looks like it’s not just the enemies that are out to get you. The gameplay clip ends with our protagonist falling into a grinder… and getting blended into mulch. Nice. Real nice.

It may have only been a short clip, but The Callisto Protocol looks like it’s going to be excellent. We can’t wait to see more. It’s coming to PC and consoles on 2nd December 2022.
