Stray release date set for July 19, available on PS Plus Extra, Premium and Deluxe
Stray will launch on July 19, Annapurna Interactive revealed at Sony’s PlayStation State of Play event on Thursday. A third-person cyberpunk game, Stray finds players taking on the role of a cat with a backpack who befriends a small flying drone, known as B12. The game lets you see the world through the eyes of a cat separated from its family. The player must survive the trials using the cat’s unique perspective and skills. Developed by BlueTwelve Studio, Stray will debut on Steam, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
Meanwhile, on PlayStation Blog, Annapurna revealed that Stray will be the first release of the new PlayStation Plus subscription service, which has started its global rollout and will arrive on June 22 in India. But you’ll need to be a subscriber to the higher tiers – PS Plus Extra or PS Plus Deluxe/Premium – to access the game without having to purchase it. The price for these starts at Rs. 749 in India.
Originally slated to launch in early 2022, Stray was later deferred for a summer 2022 debut. It is one of the most anticipated games of 2022.
The official PlayStation home of Stray reveals that Stray is set in a neon-lit detailed decaying cyber city with dark alleyways and murky environments. The player takes on the role of a cat and sees the world through the eyes of a wandering feline. The cat finds a companion in the form of a flying android called B12 and the duo try to find a way out. They roam the city, defending themselves against unforeseen threats and solving the mysteries of the cybercity filled with other droids and dangerous creatures.
Stray will be released on July 19 on PC, PS4, PS5, PS Plus Extra, PS Plus Deluxe and PS Plus Premium.
