The Callisto Protocol trailer

The Callisto Protocol is a single player narrative-driven survival horror. Set 300 years in the future, Jacob Lee currently stays in a maximum-security penitentiary known as Black Iron Prison. The prison is located on Jupiter’s Moon, Callisto. Jacob soon finds he must survive the prison when the inmates transform into monsters. However, Callisto holds dark secrets beneath the surface, ones that Jacob must escape…

The Truth of Black Iron trailer shows of a couple of the characters, including Jacob Lee, leader of the resistance group Dani Nakamura, and captain of the prison guard Leon. From the minds of the same developers who made Dead Space, this game looks like a true survival horror, with tentacle monsters and mysterious secrets.

What to expect

Key features:


  • The Callisto Protocol is a next-generation take on survival horror from the mind of Glen Schofield. Blending atmosphere, tension, and brutality with terrifying moments of helplessness and humanity, The Callisto Protocol immerses players in a pulse-pounding story where unspeakable horrors lurk around every corner.


  • Set on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto in the year 2320, The Callisto Protocol casts players as Jacob Lee, an inmate in Black Iron Prison. When a mysterious outbreak throws the moon into chaos, Jacob must face his darkest fears to defeat the bloodthirsty creatures that stalk him as he unravels the dark mysteries at the heart of the powerful United Jupiter Company.


  • The Callisto Protocol challenges players to master a thrilling blend of hand-to-hand and ranged combat, including a unique gravity weapon once used by Black Iron guards to control the prison population. Players will be forced to get up close and personal with their grotesque opponents, hacking off limbs, blasting off legs, and getting creative with whatever is at their disposal to survive each life-or-death encounter.


  • One of the most hostile, isolated environments in the universe, Callisto looms large over Jacob’s desperate struggle to survive. Players must not only contend with the horrors of Black Iron Prison, but also the centuries-old secrets that plague Jupiter’s long-dead moon, both above and below the surface.

The Callisto Protocol releases December 2, 2022 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. That’s only a couple months from now, just in time for the holiday season.
