The Callisto Protocol graced the quilt of our journal a number of months in the past and is at present one of the anticipated video games of the yr. Glen Schofield, inventive director of the brand new area horror journey and one of many main designers on the Dead Space franchise, made an look at Gamescom 2022. He thanked followers for the constructive response and spoke concerning the gritty new gameplay trailer, “We’re gonna show combat and something new with a crazy ending.”
Protagonist Jacob Lee pulls a well being merchandise with certainly one of his skills and proceeds to crouch-sneak his manner by means of a gaggle of prowling monsters. He downs one with a stab to the again and fires at one other creature, stumbling towards him with tentacles squirming round its uncovered stomach. To prime issues off, he brawls with a regenerating creature adorned with cysts and sends it flying right into a chainsaw-like construction within the setting.
In the following scene, Lee slides down a sewage drain whereas dodging lethal pillars alongside the dimly-lit channel. And in a surprising ending, paying homage to the loss of life scenes from Dead Space, the main man hits an enormous propeller obstructing the tunnel and will get ripped in half (I’ll spare you the gory particulars).
