The Callisto Protocol Update 5.01 Brings Skippable Cutscenes & Dismemberment To Xbox

Last year's divisive horror adventure The Callisto Protocol has received a new update on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S (along with other platforms) this week, bringing two great features to the game for free.

The first of these is the ability to skip cutscenes, which is a welcome and long-awaited addition. The second is a much bigger one, serving as a brand-new Dismemberment Mode that allows you to "take your enemies apart limb by limb."

You can take a look at the new Dismemberment Mode in this video:

That's your lot for this update, so we'll throw the official patch notes down below, but keep in mind that they're literally just three lines long! The extra line is to explain that you can't earn campaign achievements in Dismemberment Mode.
