The world will see the adventures of a feline creature in July as Stray will be readily available to the PS Plus users. However, this game will only be available for the Extra and Premium subscribers, leaving the Essential users out. They will either have to buy the game or upgrade to a higher tier of PS Plus.

According to billbil-kun on dealabs, who has become a reputable source for PS Plus leaks, Stray will be joined by Arcadegeddon, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, and The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan.
