The Callisto Protocol’s New Contagion Bundle DLC Adds New Mode, New Death Animations

The first batch of DLC for The Callisto Protocol is finally available in the form of The contagion package. Named after the horror game’s brand new mode, this pack includes an ultra-hard difficulty setting for the main game and 14 new death animations for the protagonist Jacob. As you watch Jacob die in new and disturbing ways, you can also dress him up in some new costumes from the Watchtower Skin Collection.

The first major addition to this DLC is the contagion mode itself. While this sounds like a brand new experience, it’s more reminiscent of it dead space 2 hardcore mode. Ammo and resources are more limited, enemies are stronger, and you cannot manually save your game. If you die during a stage, you will be returned to the beginning of the chapter. It should offer fans a much harder challenge in the main story.

As for the new death animations, developer Striking Distance Studios is sneaky about where they’ll show up. It doesn’t appear to be limited to Contagion Mode, but the official press release states: “Combine these new animations with Contagion Mode and it’s like experiencing the gruesome horrors of The Callisto Protocol for the first time.” You might be limited to specific deaths that send you back to the beginning of each chapter.

Last but not least, the Watchtower Skins collection is a set of weapon skins and player costumes to decorate Jacob and his arsenal. It seems like pretty harmless content that die-hard fans might find interesting.

The Callisto Protocol and its Contagion Bundle are currently available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. You can get the latest DLC via the Deluxe Edition of the game, the Season Pass, or as a single purchase for $9.99.
