Uncover the terrifying secrets of the United Jupiter Company

The Callisto Protocol takes place on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto in the year 2320. The game stars Josh Duhamel as Jacob Lee, a cargo ship pilot trapped deep within Black Iron Prison, and Karen Fukuhara, star of The Boys, who plays a mysterious fellow inmate. As a prisoner of the Black Iron Prison, your mission is to escape the maximum security establishment and uncover the terrifying secrets of the United Jupiter Company.

In order to do so, you’ll need to do two things: search your surroundings and adapt your tactics. You will only be successful by using a unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat if you want to survive the mysterious outbreak that has thrown Callisto into chaos.
