Previously, it was revealed that The Callisto Protocol has been banned in Japan due to concerns regarding violence, as developer Striking Distance Studios refuses to censor the game. The rating board in Japan, CERO, has banned The Callisto Protocol from release in the country over excessive violence. The developers are unwilling to compromise the experience that players are expecting, and, as a result, the game will not see the light of day in Japan.
The Callisto Protocol is a third-person narrative-driven survival horror game that takes place 300 years in the future and lets players take control of Jacob Lee, a prisoner who has been sent to the maximum-security Black Iron Prison on Jupiter’s moon Callisto. The player must fight their way to safety in order to escape Black Iron Prison as inmates start to mutate into monstrous creatures, all the while learning the sinister and unsettling secrets of Callisto.
Jacob is controlled from a third-person viewpoint, and the majority of gameplay data is shown on a holographic HUD that is also seen from this viewpoint. A “Core Device” implant on the back of Jacob’s neck serves as a health indicator, and injection-style pickups can restore his health. There is a melee combat system in addition to gun-based combat, and in this system, Jacob must avoid enemy attacks while searching for opportunities to strike and eventually kill the enemy with a variety of implements. Enemies can lose their limbs during combat or be decapitated.
