There were plenty of bangers shown off during the June 2022 PlayStation State of Play, including the new Resident Evil 4 remake, Street Fighter 6, and Final Fantasy 16. But one game that the internet just can’t seem to get enough of at the moment is Stray, a game where you play as a cat in a human-less post apocalypse.
Stray had a new trailer revealed as part of the State of Play proceedings, as well as a confirmed release date of 19 July 2022.
Additionally, a subsequent PlayStation Blog revealed that Stray would also be made available for free to any PlayStation Plus members who are signed up for the new PlayStation Plus Extra, Deluxe or Premium tiers.
Stray will follow the adventures of a nameless cat as it explores the environment and uncovers the story of its world by talking to robot characters. The cat will be equipped with a backpack to carry objects, and also be accompanied by a small drone which can help the cat communicate with the characters of the world.
The trailer shows off some gorgeously-rendered, gritty urban environments, some mysterious alien substances, a variety of well-animated robot characters, and of course, one very well-rendered cat.
We also saw some stealth and action sequences as the cat hides from surveillance drones in cardboard boxes, runs from gunfire, and tiptoes along high gutters.
Stray will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on 19 July 2022.
