The Callisto Protocol Creator Defends Season Pass Content

Matt Lorrigan

The Callisto Protocol game director Glen Schofield has taken to Twitter to clarify details surrounding the game's season pass.

The season pass for The Callisto Protocol was announced earlier this week, and, as well as the expected story DLC, will also include a new permadeath difficulty mode, a wave-based horde mode, and a ton of new death animations for protagonist Jacob Lee.

The death animations in particular have proved a controversial inclusion, even in our very own comments section, with many players believing they shouldn't be locked behind a paywall. Schofield has come out to clarify that no main game content is being is being locked behind the season pass.

“To be clear: We’re not holding anything back from the main game for the season pass,” Schofield said

“We haven’t even started work on this content yet. It's all new stuff that we’ll be working on in the new year. Fans have asked for EVEN MORE deaths, so we’re making it a priority next year.”

Whether or not this clarification changes players minds on what should and shouldn't be included in a season pass is yet to be seen, however.

The Callisto Protocol is due to launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on 2nd December 2022.

  • Nice!
  • Season passes still put people off. I was genuinely surprised when I saw this game was getting one, thought they’d been banished to Room 101 tbh
  • i personally don't mind one off season passes, it's when they go and do 3 for the likes of zombie army. but locking deaths out seems like a really dumb cash grab. hopefully the story DLC will be worth it though. like many now i just wait for an ultimate edition to go for 20 pounds, it happens all the time now as long as your prepared to wait. which i am.
  • 'no main game content is being is being locked behind the season pass.'
