Stray, an action-adventure tale of a cat trapped inside a bright cyber-world, was announced with an "awesome" trailer at Sony's PlayStation 5 unveiling event in 2020. During the showcase at Annpurna Interactive online today, we got to know this strange (and, yes, awesome) game world up close, and how, as a cat, you will survive, pass, and ultimately escape.
The new video delves into the mechanics of the game: like a wounded cat, separated from his family, you will maneuver through a forgotten, deteriorated and very dangerous city, solving simple puzzles and discovering mysteries as you go. As a grumpy, crumbling urban environment appears, it seems pretty conventional at first, but it soon becomes clear that this is definitely not the world we live in. And while, as a cat, you have no defense at first, you will make friends and acquire new skills and equipment that will allow you to interact with the world in a variety of ways, including the ability to take offense when the situation strikes.
For the most part, though, it looks like being a cat will be your best way forward: “Running fast, jumping and using stealth to avoid danger will be vital if you want to escape the city and reconnect with the your family. ”says producer Swann Martin-Raget, producer of Blue Twelve Studio. This purple death ray looks like it will be useful, though.
Stray was originally predicted that Stray would come out this year (and that’s what Steam the list currently indicates), but in the video Martin-Raget also reveals that there will be a slight delay: it is now expected to come out in early 2022.
