The Striking Distance Studios’ flagship title, The Callisto Protocol, will be included in PlayStation Plus Essential offerings for October 2023. The game is headlining the coming month’s lineup, and overall, it seems like a much better offer than September’s.
The Callisto Protocol was one of the most puzzling titles to release this year. It was a divisive title, particularly among the Dead Space fanbase, as some thought it to be a spiritual successor, while others thought that it was just an off-brand imitation of it. Nevertheless, if you’ve been wanting to try it out, now may be your chance.
The Callisto Protocol is Coming To PlayStation Plus This October
The PlayStation Plus lineup in October consists of The Callisto Protocol. These games will be available for players from October 3 to November 7. PlayStation Plus Essential is the entry-level PS Plus membership level and gives players a couple of free games each month, provided they renew their subscription regularly.
The Callisto Protocol is a survival horror game from Striking Distance Studios. It is called the spiritual successor to the sci-fi horror classic game Dead Space and is set in a space prison colony on the moon of Jupiter called Callisto. The colony is called Black Iron and is attacked by aliens. Players will take control of one of the inmates.
The PlayStation Plus Monthly Games for October are:

The game promised an intense and frightening gaming experience for the players but didn’t do well commercially. The Callisto Protocol has been in the news for the last few months after the studio laid off over 30 employees. The game again recently came to the limelight as the founder and CEO, Glen Schofield, left the studio. The game, to be added to PlayStation Plus, will be available for both PS4 and PS5.
Other Two Games To Be Added To PlayStation Plus
One of the other two games to be added to PlayStation Plus is Farming Simulator 22, developed and published by GIANTS Software. This is a farming simulation game that was released in 2021 and gives players a captivating farm management experience. The game also has various tools, vehicles, and animals for players to manage which aid in providing players with an immersive farming gameplay. This game will also be available for both PS4 and PS5.
The third game confirmed to be a part of the lineup is Weird West, an action RPG set in the wild west with fantastical creatures. Your choices throughout your lawless and gunslinging journey will effect the game’s outcome, particularly the finale, where all your important choices converge. It will be available for both PS5 and PS4.
