The Callisto protocol gets a new game+ and a number of fixes

Alongside a number of fixes that address the Maximum Security Achievement/Trophy bug, The Callisto Protocol’s latest update has added New Game+.

Striking Distance Studios shared the patch notes for the v. 3.01 update on Reddit, and it will finally allow players to jump back into the horrors of The Callisto Protocol after they’ve been credited with all weapons, upgrades, and Callisto credits.

In our review of The Callisto Protocol, we said it “is a satisfyingly gory spiritual successor to the Dead Space series, but it’s ultimately more of a striking modern imitation than a sinister new mutation.”
