The Callisto Protocol PC Specs Are Modest For Modern Gaming Rigs

Striking Distance Studios' upcoming third-person survival horror title and one of the world's most anticipated video games of 2022, The Callisto Protocol, is debuting next week on 2nd December 2022. With its arrival, the game's official minimum and recommended PC hardware specifications have been unveiled on Steam, and surprisingly, it's pretty modest for most modern gaming rigs. 

That's right. You don't need a luxurious setup worth thousands of dollars to play The Callisto Protocol. The minimum PC spec requirement for The Callisto Protocol is pretty low for a video game of its caliber, especially with such stunning visuals and terrifyingly good gameplay. That said, you probably won't be able to run the game on superb visual settings, but it'll most likely run smoothly, with the only setback being lesser graphics.
