Callisto Protocol Update: A new patch has been released, and the Callisto Protocol has announced its availability. With the release of patch 1.08, many of the issues that plagued the initial release of The Callisto Protocol have been addressed.
New survival horror game The Callisto Protocol is directed by Glen Schofield, who worked on the critically acclaimed horror games in the Dead Space series. Many players had problems with the game’s performance and other issues when The Callisto Protocol first came out.
Numerous players complained of frame rate stuttering, black screens, and even game crashes, leading some to declare the game unplayable.
Many were dismayed by these problems because of how much hype there had been surrounding The Callisto Protocol. The director finally blamed “clerical error” and vowed to address the issues as soon as possible.
The Callisto Protocol’s latest patch notes were shared on the game’s official Twitter. The tweet mentioned changes to “combat,” “performance and stability,” “localization,” and “general quality of life.”
Although The Callisto Protocol has not released official patch notes with specific changes, players have reported experiencing enhancements in the aforementioned areas. However, the official Twitter has confirmed that PS4 trophies will now sync via PSN.
All platforms now have access to the newest version. There will be changes to combat, as well as to performance and stability, localization, and quality of life. To that end, please know that your thoughts and comments are being heard and appreciated.

For horror game enthusiasts, this release was long awaited, so the fact that it’s so plagued by bugs as to be unplayable is sure to come as a bitter blow.
However, the negative user reviews The Callisto Protocol received on Steam may be altered if the development team continues to release frequent patches that fix the issues preventing players from enjoying the game.
The release of major games plagued by a slew of bugs and performance issues is, unfortunately, not an isolated occurrence these days. It is a bit of a stretch to say that a simple clerical error caused the delays in the release of The Callisto Protocol.
Players have every reason to be frustrated after shelling out $60 or more for a game that is so difficult they can hardly enjoy it.
