After years of delays and mystery, Stray is finally coming to PC and PlayStation. Stray is an indie game about a cat and a robot that takes place in a lonely, post-apocalyptic sci-fi city. Players use cat-like abilities and senses to find their family. So, how much will the independent game Stray cost?
Stray will come out on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 on July 19, 2022. It will cost $29.99, which is half of what most full games cost. Some gamers are wondering why the game isn’t priced at the usual $59.99.
Is Stray a full game?
Stray is a full game because it is a full adventure. Stray’s developers have said that the game is “wide-linear,” which means it’s not completely open world but also not a simple platformer. It’s not known how long it takes to beat the game, though.
“We didn’t really want that kind of challenge because we learned that being a cat means that every jump is super smooth and calculated and that you can jump your way around really easily.
So, these controls can help you do that and make you feel like you’re moving through the environments very naturally. Neil Druckmann, one of the founders of Naughty Dog, said, “Imagine a traditional platforming challenge where you have to control your jump and miss a lot. That wouldn’t be realistic.”
Stray will also have areas that aren’t all connected in a straight line. One of the developers said that there are “bubbles” where it seems like the world is more open. But since they are in a city, there are limits and barriers. But players will be free to move around the city and look around in some parts. Stray will cost a lot less than other big games because the project is not as big.
Is Stray going to be free?
Stray will be free for people who have the highest level of PlayStation Plus, which is called PS Plus Premium. At the moment, preorders of the game on Steam get a 10% discount. But Stray won’t be free to play when it comes out.

If you can’t wait to play Stray when it comes out on July 19, 2022, you can still pre-order the digital version on the PlayStation Store and on Steam.
Those who want the physical copy will have to wait a few more months. The physical game will be available for PS4 and PS5 on September 20, 2022.

Stray isn’t available yet as a physical PS4 game, so you’ll have to buy it from the PS Store and download it to play. Stray can also be played if you are a subscriber to the new Extra or Premium tiers of PlayStation Plus.
On July 19, PS Plus Extra and Premium subscribers will be able to play a lot of new games, including Stray. They will also be able to play Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade and five PS4 Assassin’s Creed games. Here is the full list of PlayStation Plus games for the month of July.
If you want to play Stray and other games but don’t have PS Plus Extra or Premium yet, you can get a £90 PlayStation Gift Card for £74.85 at ShopTo. This card can be used to buy PS Plus subscriptions.
PS Plus Extra costs £84 for a year, so this card will cover the cost and give you a little extra to “put in the kitty.” Premium, on the other hand, costs £100 for a year or £40 for three months. This means that you can pay for most of a year’s subscription or two three-month subscriptions.
