The surprise kitty sensation from last summer and one of the best ps5 games It’s heading to Xbox consoles.
Stray briefly broke the internet last year when pet lovers on PS5 and PC shared videos of their haunted cats and dogs staring at the indie hit on TVs around the world.
Now xbox series x and xbox series s gamers will finally be able to enjoy some feline fun with the news that Stray is heading to Microsoft consoles. The announcement came during the Annapurna Interactive Exhibitwith BlueTwelve Studio’s charming cat adventure coming to Xbox platforms on August 10.
Equal parts weird and endearing, Stray is one of the best games on PS5’s PlayStation Plus Extra service. It might be a bit short – you can loiter and overcome its challenges in less than three hours – but it’s still captivating during its short playtime.
Cat is everything, friends
Originally named ‘HK Project’, Stray was in development for seven years before it hit PS5 and PC last summer. Within minutes of playing this labor of love, it’s clear to see why it took the small team at BlueTwelve so long to pull it off.
In thirty years of playing video games, I have never seen such believable depictions of animal movement. In motion, Stray is something else to behold.
The slightly silly appeal of playing a cat is obviously the game’s big hook, but Stray has a lot more going for her than tabby treats. A bizarre mix of puzzles and platforming, this indie adventure sees you wandering the underground streets of a dystopian city… a dystopian city inhabited by strangely relatable and sometimes embarrassing robots. Naturally.
I can’t fully describe how much I love Stray. He was obsessed with the game when it released on PS5. So much so that I earned its platinum trophy within a week of its release.
Unlocking said Sony trinket involved sitting on the laps of robots, climbing into makeshift elevators made from cubes, and walking away from little beasties that looked like they came straight out of Half-Life 2’s awesome Ravenholm section.
Xbox gamers, you are in luck. Don’t just take my word for it; my husky is equally in love with Stray…
I can’t think of a game that would be easier to recommend to anyone with even the slightest love for our feline friends.
