Playing as an animal in PlayStation games isn’t something new. However, Stray, developed by BlueTwelve Studio, will give you the first chance with the brand new PS5 to experience the world as an adorable cat in a strange, forgotten city.

Stray is a third-person cat adventure game set amidst the detailed neon-lit alleys of a decaying cybercity and the murky environments of its seedy underbelly,” Annapurna Interactive said. 

“Players will play as a stray cat, roaming surroundings high and low, defend against unforeseen threats and solve the mysteries of this unwelcoming place inhabited by nothing but unassuming droids and dangerous creatures. Lost, alone and separated from family, players must untangle an ancient mystery to escape a long-forgotten cybercity and find the way home.”
