Melee combat accounts for half of combat in The Callisto Protocol, according to the developer.
In the horror game The Callisto Protocol, the enemy comes at you more often than you might like. Because, as design director Ben Walker revealed, many of the fights will be face-to-face.
It was based on the aspect of survival, after all, the basic tone of the fights in the horror game is the fight for survival itself, according to Walker. And you would do anything to somehow survive or get by.
The fights that players will fight in The Callisto Protocol are therefore almost half about melee combat. The bullets from a weapon should therefore be used with care, for example to finally eliminate enemies after a melee combo.
“Almost half of our fights are hand-to-hand combat. This means that you have to use your balls wisely. To that end, we’ve added our melee combos, which when completed will somehow knock the enemy away. It gives you the ability to strike quickly and hit the enemy with a clean shot.”
The Callisto Protocol will be released on December 2nd, 2022 for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
