Callisto Protocol update 1.08 brings combat improvements, stability and performance fixes, and more

Callisto Protocol launched earlier this month, and developer Striking Distance has been working hard to fix several issues plaguing the game on all platforms. Some of these issues have now been addressed with a new update.

Update 1.08, which is now out on PC and consoles, has introduced combat improvements, performance and stability fixes, localization improvements, and general quality of life changes. The update also fixes an issue that prevented PlayStation 4 Trophies from syncing properly. Detailed update notes aren’t available yet, so the full extent of these changes is unknown.

Even without the technical issues plaguing The Callisto Protocol, especially on PC, the game developed by Striking Distance Studios is not on the same level as the Dead Space series. While the horror elements are solid, everything else leaves something to be desired, as Kay explained in his review.

Despite its stunning screenshots and death scenes, The Callisto Protocol suffers from a lack of interesting content that makes the twelve-plus hour journey through Black Iron Prison worth two, maybe even one. Both crafting and skill trees are simple in nature (both cost a significant amount of credits as players may only be able to fully upgrade two or three weapons in the full game) while combat encounters and combat in general feel very scripted. The horror elements stand out as the only reason to play the first horror game in Striking Distance, but you might want to find yourself thrown back into Black Iron Prison rather than see the journey through to the end.

The Callisto Protocol is now available on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One worldwide. We’ll keep you updated on upcoming fixes for the game as soon as possible, so stay tuned for the latest news.
