Can't wait to get your hands on feline-led adventure game Stray? You might be wondering if it's available to pre-load.

Stray, the upcoming adventure game published by Annapurna, is set to release tomorrow July 19. The game has caught the attention of animal-lovers in particular, owing to the game's ginger cat protagonist. Players take on the third-person perspective of a cat stranded on a mysterious world inhabited only by droids. With nothing but a drone companion, the cat must uncover the mysteries behind the world, and find a way back home.

Stray focuses on exploration and stealth-based navigation in ways that only a cat can manage. With a unique experience at player fingertips, many might be wondering if the game can be pre-loaded.

Can You Pre-Load Stray? Download Sizes Revealed

Despite Stray being available as digital downloads on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC, the game is sadly not available for pre-load. The good news is, the game isn't massive in terms of download size, with players looking at the following for console:

  • PlayStation 4 - 13.352 GB
  • PlayStation 5 - 7.514 GB

Even with a somewhat shaky internet connection, the game shouldn't take too long to download, with just over 13GB on PS4 and nearly half that for PS5. As for PC, players will need at least 10 GB available space according to Stray's Steam page.

Subscribers to PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium will be abale to download the game at no extra cost upon its release tomorrow, July 19. But again, there's no pre-load available for this option either.
