Game news The Callisto Protocol: how long will the nightmare last? An official response
The Callisto Protocol is certainly one of the most anticipated games of this end of the year and there are many reasons for this. If you are also patiently waiting to discover the adventure of Jacob Lee, know that his approximate lifespan has just been revealed.
A winding nightmare
Survival horror is not really lacking in the game and yet some manage to pull out of the game. The Callisto Protocol is clearly one of these, which is directly inspired by Dead Space and for good reason: the two games share the same director, namely Glen Schofield. Formerly at Visceral Games, the American went to found Sledghammer Games to make several Call of Duty before founding Striking Distance in 2019, of which he is now the head.
It is therefore he who also directs the operations on The Callisto Protocol, his horrifying new baby whom he knows inside out. It was precisely during an interview with EDGE magazine (to be found in issue 377) that he revealed the duration of the game, estimated between twelve and fourteen hours.
However, it seems good to note that there should be several difficulty modes (which will obviously affect the longevity of the adventure) and especially, “side paths” all the way. “They come later in the game, but some of them are really cool. We won’t tell you where they are or how many there are, but if you really explore, the title will be longer”then specifies Schofield.
Inside the solar system’s toughest prisons
If there are so many corridors and paths to discover, it’s because The Callisto Protocol is set in a gigantic metal prison on one of Jupiter’s moons. This huge complex does not want to be the most pleasant for its prisoners and relies heavily on oppression and claustrophobia, which the hero Jacob Lee will discover at his expense.
He will thus explore the smallest recesses, walls and vents of a base plagued by a terrible virus transforming almost everyone into biophages, deformed monsters, aggressive, devoid of politeness and the slightest good manners. And capable of mutating, on top of that.
We then find the facets that once made the success of Dead Space: a fine sound design, a completely real-time interface, stifling metal corridors, tactical dismemberment, constant survival, the possibility of using telekinesis and a big gore look, arguably among the most technically elaborate in video game history.
So many good reasons to watch The Callisto Protocol which will arrive on December 2 (same day as the all-new Need for Speed, by the way) on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One.
