13 Minutes of The Callisto Protocol Gameplay Leaks Online
Around 13 minutes of The Callisto Protocol’s opening has leaked online via Resetera (and uploaded to YouTube) ahead of its official release on December 2nd.
As with all gameplay leaks, the footage is very low quality but has already been praised on the forum for looking “amazing”.
The footage has since received a DMCA strike, but we’ll link any mirrored footage that’s found at the bottom of the article, but be warned, there are spoilers.
The Callisto Protocol has been developed by Striking Distance, a new studio headed by co-creator of the Dead Space series, Glen Schofield.
A new trailer of the game was released last week:
The Callisto Protocol is set in 2320 at a prison colony called Black Iron, operated by the United Jupiter Company, and located on Jupiter’s moon Callisto. The player takes the role of a prisoner Jacob Lee (Josh Duhamel) held at Black Iron, finding themselves in the midst of an alien invasion that appears to have been engineered by the prison’s warden.
Originally, The Callisto Protocol was intended to help expand the PUBG: Battlegrounds universe by creating a narrative-driven game. However by May 26, 2022, Schofield stated that the game had grown to be its own story and is no longer connected to PUBG, though there remain small nods to the latter.
On October 27, 2022, the Japanese release was canceled when the game did not get a CERO rating due to the game’s violent content and the developer refused to make the necessary changes.
The Callisto Protocol will release on December 2, 2022 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and PC.
