BlueTwelve Studio walked america done its cat-centric game, Stray, during the Annapurna Interactive Showcase today. The caller trailer focuses on the game’s protagonist and world, including a look astatine 1 friendly little drone, and breaks the quality that Stray volition present launch in aboriginal 2022 connected PlayStation 5, Playstation 4, and PC.
Though the crippled seems poised to go an indie darling, astir apt fueled by the internet’s well-documented emotion of cats, we didn’t cognize overmuch astir Stray earlier today. First shown astatine Sony’s PlayStation lawsuit past summer, Stray’s announcement trailer communicated 2 things precise well. One, Stray has a feline successful it – that sometimes wears a tiny backpack. Two, the game’s fearless feline inhabits a grim cityscape populated by mechanical beings. Humanity, it seems – if respective graffiti messages successful the trailer are immoderate denotation – has met with immoderate unkind end. Between the game's intriguing, though foreboding, satellite and its adorable character, we were anxious to spot more.
Luckily, today’s showcase was blessed to oblige. Stray’s caller trailer explains the game's lead has been separated from its family. Lost and hurt, it makes its mode done a hostile and unfamiliar metropolis conscionable trying to survive. The subordinate volition acquisition this done the cat's eyes. Whether it's crossing a lake of toxic sludge or uncovering a mode past whirling instrumentality blades of death, it looks for a portion similar you'll beryllium near unsocial to fend for yourself. Until B-12 appears.
B-12 is simply a tiny drone that volition let you interact with the mysterious metropolis astir you and pass with the locals. Hovering helpfully supra the ground, the drone will assistance you with everything from picking up objects to fighting. Apart from introducing B-12, the trailer shows disconnected a fewer of the game’s puzzles and immoderate rooftop action, giving america a amended thought of Stray’s moment-to-moment gameplay. We are besides introduced to Doc, a handy-looking robot occupied by thoughts of his son, that might have an important role to play in your adventure.
Stray's caller 2022 merchandise model is announced adjacent the extremity of the video. This is simply a spot disappointing considering the game’s archetypal trailer said Stray would beryllium retired successful 2021. However, it is not the archetypal game to get pushed retired of 2021, and it astir apt won’t beryllium the last.
