With its release just around the corner, many might be wondering if Stray is an open world game.

Stray, the new adventure game developed by BlueTwelve Studio and published by Annapurna Interactive is set to release in just a few days time, on July 19, 2022. The game follows a stray cat who uncovers the ancient mystery of a strange cybercity, occupied only by droids and dangerous creatures. 

The game has understandably caught the attention of cat-lovers, thanks to its depiction of an adorable ginger cat and its drone companion. With many eager to try out the upcoming game, players might be wondering if it's open world.

Is Stray an Open World Game?

While Stray isn't a massive open world game comparable to the likes of Breath of the Wild, it does have open world elements. The game has a main focus on exploration and atmosphere, where players will have areas to explore with sections only accessible to a cat. The game's design aims to give players a cat's perspective on the bizarre, droid-inhabited world.

The city in Stray is inspired by Kowloon Walled City, which was an ungoverned and highly popualted area within Kowloon in Hong Kong. With this inspiration, the developers were able to create unique but natural feeling environments with plenty of levels for a cat to explore.

Stray releases on July 19, 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
