It seems like Krafton and Striking Distance Studios decided to release the new feature early. Based on a previous post, the introduction of new game plus to The Callisto Protocol was initially slated for a February launch.

If the rest of the dates are to be followed, however, users can also expect bonus content to be added to the game’s Season Pass. This includes an Outer Way Skin Collection that will arrive on February 7, 2023. Additionally, there will be a Contagion and Riot Bundle included in Spring 2023. Last but not least, extra story content will be introduced in Summer 2023.

Though many in the community were initially excited to start playing this latest horror entry, a majority became immediately disappointed due to the numerous problems currently plaguing the game. PC users in particular are experiencing the bulk of these flaws as evidenced by the scathing reviews left on the game’s Steam page.

The player base will be pleased to know, however, that these issues are being addressed based on their latest patch.
