The Callisto Protocol’s concluding chapter story DLC is lastly nearly right here. Entitled Ultimate Transmission, the “heart-pounding ultimate chapter” of Hanging Distance Studios’ Lifeless Area-like horror game guarantees to “dig deeper into the horrifying secrets and techniques of The Callisto Protocol.”

That is not a lot to go on so far as what gamers can anticipate from the DLC, however at this level it is all we have got.

It is nice that The Callisto Protocol can have a correct conclusion, however extra vital are the updates which have been rolled out for the reason that game’s launch in December 2022. We loved our time with the game, though it was maybe a bit too dedicated to the survival horror formulation, however it additionally suffered from a widespread stuttering situation that—large shock right here—resulted in a brutal assessment bombing marketing campaign at launch. That was fastened in pretty brief order, however though consumer critiques on Steam bounced again it stays caught with a “combined” total ranking.

The Callisto Protocol additionally failed to fulfill Krafton’s gross sales expectations, though these hopes have been awfully optimistic: As we famous on the time, the unique Lifeless Area video games are fashionable and well-liked, however not huge hits by any measure, and definitely not sufficient to ensure multi-million gross sales success to a form of “religious successor” game that in any other case has no connection to the Lifeless Area collection.

Ultimate Transmission will not be the primary new content material launched for The Callisto Protocol—a few DLC bundles with new cosmetics and game modes have beforehand been launched—however it will likely be the primary, and sure, the final, full-on story enlargement. It is set to go dwell on June 27 for PlayStation consoles, and can observe on different platforms on June 29.
