The Callisto Protocol Has PS5 Exclusive Features

The upcoming survival-horror game The Callisto Protocol has some features that players will only be able to experience on PlayStation 5.

Legendary developer Glen Schofield is perhaps best known for his work on the landmark survival-horror franchise Dead Space, and so it’s no surprise that hype is high for his next game, The Callisto Protocol. The Callisto Protocol looks to be a spiritual successor of sorts to the Dead Space franchise, pitting players against horrific monsters that are stalking them in a futuristic sci-fi environment.

When The Callisto Protocol release date rolls around later this year, players will be able to check it out across PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles, but there will be some features exclusive to the PS5 version of the game. While these features aren’t anything too dramatic, they may still be what convinces survival-horror fans to pick up the PS5 version of the game over the other ones available.


It’s been confirmed that The Callisto Protocol will be taking full advantage of the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller. Players will feel the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback kick when attacking The Callisto Protocol monsters with protagonist Jacob’s stun baton, as detailed in a recent PlayStation Blog post. There will be other situations where players are able to “feel” what’s happening in the game through the DualSense, and it should go a long way in heightening the experience.

It’s long been believed that the DualSense controller could be great for horror games, and one of the first real tests of that will be when The Callisto Protocol launches later this year. Besides taking advantage of the DualSense controller’s unique features, The Callisto Protocol will also benefit from the console’s use of 3D audio. Overall, it sounds like the definitive way to experience the game will be on PS5, but it should be a solid experience regardless of one’s platform of choice.

Horror game fans have gotten a lot more looks at The Callisto Protocol as of late. During the latest PlayStation State of Play, fans were treated to a new trailer setting up the game’s story and tone. And then at Summer Game Fest, raw Callisto Protocol gameplay footage was shown off for the first time, showing that the game certainly has a lot in common with Dead Space, but is perhaps taking things in an even more brutal, gorier direction. Fans will have to find out for themselves once The Callisto Protocol launches later this year.

The Callisto Protocol will launch December 2 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
