The Callisto Protocol, the debut sci-fi horror game by Striking Distance Studios, received a major update recently. The January 19 patch updated the game’s version to 3.01 and brought highly-demanded features.

The previously-announced New Game Plus feature is finally here. You will need to complete the game at least once to access it. Players will retain all their weapons, upgrades, and Callisto Credits gained in their previous run-through.

Performance optimizations for all platforms are made, and voice leveling and subtitle mismatch for multiple languages is fixed. The cinematics skip button is mapped to the interact/pickup input button, and players won’t take damage when they are in vaulting animation anymore.

  • Users who previously completed the game will have access to NewGame+ after the patch.
    • Application restart may be required.
    • Requires an active save file from game completion.
  • Fixed an issue where some users were not correctly granted the "The Protocol is About Life" achievement
  • Added New Game Plus. Complete the game to unlock New Game Plus and carry your pression over to a new save. All weapons, upgrades, and Callisto Credits can be collected at the first Reforge
  • General performance optimizations across all platforms
  • Players no longer take damage when vaulting over obstacles
  • Fixed multiple issues where certain camera angles or progression paths could cause environments to stream out and allow Jacob to fall through the ground
  • Consistency pass on cabinets, lockers, and shelves to display correctly in High Contrast mode
  • Voice leveling and subtitle mismatch adjustments across localized languages
  • Fixed low frequency crash in the Tunnels level during the Two Head fight
  • Skip Cinematics button has been mapped to the Interact/Pickup input
  • Fixed a long hitch when enabling Ray-Traced Shadows in the main menu
  • Prevented mouse cursor from displaying during some area transitions
  • Fixed low frequency crash in Snowcat when Jacob is talking to Dani
