Next year we will see the birth of a new horror franchise with The Callisto Project (or hopefully anyway, barring no delays). The game was revealed with an rather gruesome trailer and looks to be something of a callback to Dead Space, which developer Striking Distance has attachment to with key staff members. They are looking to make a scary game to help kickstart us on this generation of consoles, and it seems they have eyes on some of the PS5 features.

In the latest issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine (February 2021), Studio Lead Glen Schofield spoke about some of the specific PS5 features they were looking at to maximize the scares. One thing he pointed out was the Tempest 3D AudioTech and how you can use it to increase tension with the direction of enemies, something that will be great for a horror game, saying, “You can hear something, and it sounds like it’s behind your back, or it’s just above you. With headphones on, it’s insane.”

The audio is always a big part of these experiences, but he is also looking at the controller and its haptic feedback. While he didn’t go into details, he thinks that they can use the new and more detailed rumble to create a new sensation for horror titles.

“We’ll see how we can get that to work. But I think we can get a couple of scares out of the of the controller itself,” Schofield says. “There’s a number of things that are really going to help us make a next-generation survival horror.”

The Callisto Protocol is set to release in 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. The game will also have a canon connection to PUBG, which you can read more details on through here.
