Stray follows a cat that gets separated from its family. Along the way, the cat navigates a cybercity and discovers its mysteries while also finding its way back home. The trailer shown off during the event gives players an idea of the tone of the mysterious city and the robots that inhabit it.

“Our goal is to create a unique experience playing as a cat,” says Viv, Creative and Game Director for Stray on the PlayStation Blog. “We are inspired everyday by Murtaugh and Riggs, our two cats. Most of the team are cat owners as well, giving us all a lot of helpful first-hand references. Cats are always so playful, cute and lovingly annoying that it’s an endless stream of gameplay ideas for us.”

“It is also a very unique point of view for an adventure game,” continues Viv. “Exploring the strange world we are building feels really fresh when you’re sneaking under a car, or walking the rooftops with the inhabitants below unaware of your presence. Or if you want them to be aware, you can just meow endlessly to annoy them.”

Stray wasn’t the only game to get announced today. Among the other major announcements during The Future of Gaming are Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Resident Evil VIII: Village, and Horizon: Forbidden Forest. While we didn’t get info on the PlayStation 5’s price and release date, we got a look at what the console looks like and some of its accessories.

Stray launches on the PlayStation 5 in 2021. If you’re interested in the game, you can watch the announcement trailer below.
