The Callisto Protocol PS5 PS4

The Callisto Protocol was a highlight of last week's excellent State of Play, and judging by the gameplay that was shown, survival horror fans are in for a real treat (that is, if you like your treats in the form of flesh-nightmares).

In an interview with the PlayStation Blog, Glen Schofield, the CEO of Striking Distance Studios (and the original creator of Dead Space), revealed that The Callisto Protocol will have content exclusive to PlayStation when it launches at the end of the year — 2nd December, 2022.

This exclusive DLC is called the Contraband Pack, and according to Schofield, it will give players that pre-order the game something to give you a fighting chance against the unspeakable horrors that await you in Black Iron Prison. The specifics weren't listed, but we would imagine it would contain restorative items or crafting materials or a weapon upgrade, something small to help out in the early game.
