Cat game Stray gets a summer release date

Stray, the indie game featuring a cat in a world of robots, got a release date of July 19 and will be free to download for anyone subscribed to either PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium. The news comes from today’s PlayStation State of Play event.

Stray - State of Play June 2022 Trailer | PS5 & PS4 Games

Originally shown off during PlayStation’s Future of Gaming event in 2020, Stray was only known to be coming sometime in the summer of 2022. A new trailer for the game gave it a firmer release date. The game is now set to launch on July 19, confirming recent leaks. It will be available for both PS4 and PS5, though no price has been given as of yet.

The new trailer showed off more of the cat exploring, solving puzzles, and interacting with the robotic citizens that populate the game’s world. We saw a few new environments, such as a sewer and an underground tree house, but otherwise not much new was shown.

This is likely the last time we will see Stray before the final release in July, which leaves many of the game’s mysteries still open to be discovered. All we really know is that we play as a cat attempting to escape a city and return to their family.

Annapurna Interactive has already made a name for itself as a game publisher as of late, but for many, Stray is its most exciting project on the horizon. Now we know we won’t have long to wait to see what is in store for this feline-focused adventure game.

Elden Ring: How to find and use Rune Arcs
An Elden Ring player sits on their horse and looks out at a castle ahead.

Like everything else developed by FromSoftware, Elden Ring is painfully difficult. It'll take you hundreds of hours to discover everything it has to offer, and unless you're a grizzled veteran, you'll likely hit the "Game Over" screen thousands of times before your journey in the Lands Between comes to an end.

One way to help even the odds is by using Rune Arcs — a consumable item that lets you access Great Runes. You'll first need to unlock Great Runes to start properly using Rune Arcs, but once that's taken care of, you'll notice a big boost in your abilities.

When will Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth be on PC?

PlayStation 5 players have been raving about the second part of the FF7 remake project Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. As with the first part, it was made clear well in advance that this game would be a PlayStation exclusive at launch, however, we did eventually get Remake of the first part on PC around a year later. This gives PC players hope that the same treatment will be given to Rebirth, but the big question becomes how long will we have to wait this time? Is it possible to see it come to PC storefronts faster than its prequel, or will we need to bide our time avoiding spoilers for months on end? Here's our best estimate as to when you can expect to see Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth on PC.
What is the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth PC release date?

The sad fact of the matter is we don't have an official release date for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth on PC or any other platform at this time. But there is reason to at least hope that the wait won't be as long this time around. Our only clue is that the marketing for Rebirth states that it is a PlayStation 5 exclusive until at least May 29, 2024. That's exactly three months after its initial release.

Rise of the Ronin is a grab bag of gaming’s greatest hits
Rise of the Ronin's character on a horse.

When I grappled to the roof of a building using my hook, I felt like I'd played Rise of the Ronin before. That’s not a bad thing; I’ve played many of Team Ninja’s previous games, but it felt oddly familiar, in a bloody comforting way.

Team Ninja has released titles at a regular cadence over the past several years, and it’s impressive that the studio has been able to maintain at least a certain level of quality. The developer has experimented with different genres in that time too. It took on the Soulslike genre with Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and Nioh, the fighting game realm with Dead or Alive, and action RPGs with Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. This year, Team Ninja is releasing Rise of the Ronin for PlayStation 5 and taking a swing at the open-world RPG. Its gameplay incorporates many systems from Team Ninja’s previous games, and draws inspiration from other developers like FromSoftware.
