The Callisto Protocol was one of the biggest game releases in December, but mixed reviews and a $70 price point for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S may have convinced you to wait for a sale. If that’s you, now’s your chance to grab the game for a stellar price. The Callisto Protocol is on sale for $50 for new-gen consoles and $40 for last-gen platforms. This deal is available at both Amazon and Best Buy.
The Callisto Protocol is the debut game from Striking Distance Studios, a game studio made up of ex-Dead Space and Call of Duty developers, including director Glenn Schoefield. The game is positioned as a “spiritual successor” to the original Dead Space trilogy and features a mix of brutal action combat and sci-fi survival horror.
While The Callisto Protocol certainly has a strong pedigree behind it, fans and critics were ultimately split on whether it lived up to expectations when it was released in December 2022. In our review, Jordan Ramée gave The Callisto Protocol a 5/10, praising the graphical fidelity, audio design, and several of the main casts’ performances, but lamented the lackluster combat and late-game difficulty spike.
Despite the mixed critical response, The Callisto Protocol might be worth grabbing while it’s on sale for those who want to try the game for themselves.
