If you were intrigued by The Callisto Protocol when it launched last month but didn’t want to shell out $70 for it, now’s your chance to get the survival horror game for a great price. The Callisto Protocol is on sale for only $40 at Walmart for PS5. It’s the lowest price yet for the PS5 version. Sadly, Xbox Series X owners can’t take advantage of this deal. It’s worth noting that both the PS4 and Xbox One editions are discounted to $40, too.
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.
