If you happen to have been a fan of EA’s Useless House franchise, then Placing Distance Studios’ upcoming survival horror revival The Callisto Protocol could also be simply what you want in your life proper now.

Spearheaded by trade veteran Glen Schofield – the previous Vice President of Useless House developer Visceral Video games, in addition to the horror sequence’ co-creator and govt producer, too – The Callisto Protocol is ready to be a non secular successor to EA’s defunct sci-fi horror franchise.

To this point, although, we’ve solely been aware of a extremely tantalising cinematic reveal trailer (which you’ll take a look at beneath) and an official affirmation that the sport can be set within the PUBG universe.

Fortunately, in commemoration of John Carpenter’s The Factor‘s 39 yr anniversary – which was a large affect on Useless House’s interstellar horror aesthetic and tone – Schofield took to Twitter not too long ago to disclose some model new idea artwork for The Callisto Protocol. Feast your eyes on mentioned artwork down beneath:

As you’ll be able to see, the brand new idea artwork offers off some main John Carpenter and Useless House vibes. From the look of the necromorph-like monstrosity on the middle of the picture to the inexperienced holographic writing on the blood-splattered pillar on the left, there’s definitely an echo of the otherworldly interplanetary dread of the USG Ishimura.

Frankly, we expect the time for a Useless House revival couldn’t be any higher. Resulting from Visceral Video games being shuttered in 2018, it’s pretty unlikely that EA will resurrect the beloved IP for a remaster or a remake sooner or later. (It’s price noting that there have been rumors {that a} Useless House remaster may very well be on the playing cards however they sadly stay unconfirmed on the time of writing.) Nonetheless, our fingers are firmly crossed for some sort of a Useless House remaster or remake, although.

Fortunately, nonetheless, we nonetheless have The Callisto Protocol to look ahead to and it seems to be prefer it’s shaping up very properly certainly.

The Callisto Protocol is scheduled to launch a while in 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Sequence X|S and PC.
