In a fascinating development, a recent discovery of an Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) rating has hinted at the arrival of Stray, the popular adventure game from BlueTwelve Studio, on Xbox platforms. Originally released last year, Stray has captivated audiences with its unique premise and engaging gameplay, and now it seems set to delight a whole new cadre of players on Xbox.
Stray is a distinctive adventure game that puts players in the role of a Cat navigating a mysterious, dystopian city. Played from a third-person perspective, the game sees players exploring a vast urban environment, including back alleyways, rooftops, and hidden rooms. Along the way, they’ll need to solve puzzles, engage with the city’s robotic inhabitants, and fend off parasitic, mouse-like bots using a UV light weapon.
The game’s innovative concept and adorable protagonist have earned it a loyal fan base and critical acclaim. Stray was previously made available as part of PlayStation Plus’ free games, fuelling speculation about a potential addition to Xbox’s Game Pass.
An ESRB rating is usually a tell-tale sign of an upcoming game release. Although the Xbox tag in the Stray rating summary isn’t an official announcement, it does signal that the game may soon be available to Xbox players. BlueTwelve Studio has not officially confirmed the news, but the Xbox gaming community is already abuzz with anticipation.
