The Callisto Protocol is one of the most highly anticipated video games in years. A terrifying, visceral sci-fi survival horror, Striking Distance Studios tasked us with stoking the imagination of the public with the horrors awaiting them on Callisto and within the bowels of Black Iron Prison.

'Rise, Dead Man' combines live-action and VFX to explore the layers of fear that are infused throughout the video game.

Using two interconnected timelines, the spot follows Jacob, brought to life by Josh Duhamel, from the beginning of his story, with his varying emotions and physical experiences juxtaposed against the horrors he must survive and escape through his journey - on both the exterior of Callisto and within the bowels of Black Iron Prison.

He’s been beaten down, through hell and back, but does he have just enough left inside him to keep fighting?
