The Callisto Protocol will receive a new piece of DLC called Final Transmission. It will launch as a timed exclusive on PlayStation for 48 hours on June 27, and then be released on all other platforms on June 29.
Striking Distance Studios posted a short teaser trailer showing protagonist Jacob Lee waking up and coming across a big robot that makes its way towards him. The studio calls it a “heart-pounding final chapter,” indicating that this could be the game’s only story DLC. However, it’s possible more non-story DLC could be added in the future.

The Callisto Protocol received plenty of updates since its release last December. In February, the game got an official hardcore mode and some Outer Way skins. In March, a Permadeath mode was added, as well as new death animations and skins. Last month, the game got the wave-based Riot mode where players have to fight through increasingly difficult waves of enemies.
Unfortunately, The Callisto Protocol also reportedly underperformed in sales when it debuted. In IGN’s The Callisto Protocol review, we said, “The Callisto Protocol is a satisfyingly gory spiritual successor to the Dead Space series, but it’s ultimately more of a striking modern mimic than a scary new mutation.”
