The Callisto Protocol Dev Says Its Characters Are ‘The Most Realistic You’ll See In A Game,’ Right Down To Ray-Traced Reflections For The Eyeballs

Speaking during an interview with TechRadar, Striking Distance Studios‘ Mark James revealed that The Callisto Protocol‘s characters are ‘the most realistic you’ll see in a game,’ right down to the eyeballs, which boast ray-traced reflections.

Our characters are the most realistic characters you’ll see in a game. So much so, that when we first showed our game, everybody thought it was pre-rendered. We were like, ‘No, this is how our character looks. This is how Josh [Duhamel, the actor behind the game’s main character] looks’.

We’ve got a full scan, even down to ray-traced reflections for the eyeballs. So if you look into the [character’s] eyes in our game, you can see their reflected optics. It’s a really tiny detail, but it’s those tiny details that actually are so important to our game.

Over the weekend, Striking Distance Studios’ chief Glen Schofield found himself the target of criticism on social media, after he tweeted out a message that seemed to glorify crunch culture. Schofield later deleted the post and issued an apology.

The Callisto Protocol is pencilled in for a December 2, 2022 release on PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One.
