The future of gaming is now.

The content of the Season Pass for The Callisto Protocol was revealed today by developer Striking Distance Studios. Included in the pass are no fewer than 13 additional death animations. Obviously those added death animations aren't the only thing included in the Season Pass, but the fact that these are included at all is certainly intriguing.

The contents of the Season Pass were first revealed on the Steam page for The Callisto Protocol. This Pass will be included in the $79.99 (USD) Digital Deluxe Edition of the game and the $249.99 Collector's Edition. Pricing for picking up the Season Pass on its own (for those that get the $59.99 base version of the game) was not yet shared. It wouldn't be unreasonable to expect it to cost around $20 when that time comes though.

In addition to adding in these 13 additional death animations for the main protagonist Jacob, the Season Pass will include some other items that could make the added cost a bit more enticing.

The Season Pass includes:

Outer Way Skin Collection: Bear the armor of the Outer Way, an underground insurgency pitted against the UJC, as you fight to survive the horrors of Callisto.

Contagion Bundle: Discover the ultimate survival horror experience with a new mode, Contagion. With reduced ammo and health drops, a customized difficulty and permadeath – there are no second chances to escape Black Iron Prison or the horrors lurking beneath the surface of Callisto. 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.​
Maybe missing out on these 13 additional death animations isn't quite that big of a deal. The game is already so over the top with blood and gore that it was cancelled in Japan outright. Several death animations from the game have already been shown off in nearly all of the game's pre-release videos that have come out.

There is also an achievement for seeing all of the death animations in the game, but it seems highly unlikely that these extra 13 that are locked behind the Season Pass. Of course, the fact that there are death animations locked behind a paywall in the first place isn't something anybody really expected, so you never know.
