The Contagion Bundle also includes thirteen new Jacob death animations and the Watchtower Skin Collection.
Riot Bundle: Venture into a previously undiscovered area of Black Iron Prison and battle through waves of brutal enemies. Gather credits to upgrade your weapons, or forge new ones, and survive the onslaught as long as you can in Riot, an all-new mode. The Riot Bundle also includes twelve new enemy death animations and the Engineer Skin Collection.
Story DLC: Dig deeper into the horrifying secrets of The Callisto Protocol.Steam
What stood out for a lot of people is the mention of 13 new death animations for Jacob. Players speculated this is cut content, a fair assumption given the concerns in adding new content to places players won’t see or experience.
Following a number of comments on the potential issue, Glen A. Schofield, CEO and founder of Striking Distance Studios, tweeted a response.
It’s good to have confirmation this is both not cut content and in response to fans wanting more unique deaths.
The Callisto Protocol is set to release Dec. 2 for PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series, and PC.
