Cat people across the gaming world rejoiced upon seeing new footage of Annapurna Interactive's upcoming kitty-based adventure, Stray. The good news is that now it has a release date. Stray is set to release on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 (as well as on PC) on July 19.
For the uninitiated, Stray follows a titular stray cat, who has been abandoned in a strange world. This world is filled with robots and cyborgs. While this cat doesn't know what's happening, it does know that it has to escape this world and he'll look to do so with the aid of a mysterious drone named B-12.
"When we decided to add the backpack and the small drone called B-12 that follows the cat everywhere, it opened up a new layer of ways to interact and learn about the environment for us," Producer Swann Martin-Raget said on PlayStation.Blog. "Especially the ability to talk with the characters of the world was really important to convey some fundamental points about the environment or learn a bit more backstory from several of its inhabitants."
Stray will be console exclusive to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Those who would like to pick the game up for free can do so by subscribing to PlayStation Plus at the Extra or above tier. This is one of the first noteworthy new releases that will be offered for free under the newly-structured PlayStation Plus.
Stray will come to PS5, PS4, and PC via Steam on July 19.
