Last Night Anapurna Interactive brought us an all-new showcase as part of Summer games Fest, where we got to see some great updates from their upcoming releases, including Stray, Neon White and the incredibly well-received Outer Wilds. If you missed the updates Anapurna had to show us during the showcase, you can check the full show out above or scroll down just a little more to check out our highlights.


We finally got a look at the gameplay to Stray. Which took us to an eerie, almost abandoned city where we play as an injured cat trying to make its way home. As we make our journey through the city, our cat will need to solve puzzles and explore in ways we wouldn’t usually be able to as a human protagonist. What impressed me the most about Stray was the way the cat moved around. The animations were smooth and life-like, especially with how the cat limped around the city with its robotic companion B-12. As we continue exploring, we meet other automated personalities and get to interact with many everyday objects the way a cat would. I also enjoyed the simplicity of free running, which seems to be a single button to change your path as you move around. Stray will release early next year, and personally I cannot wait to be the best cat I can be and scratch all the sofas.

Solar Ash

As part of the stream, we finally got a release date for the absolutely stunning Solar Ash. The trailer brought us many new gameplay moments as we glide, grind and gracefully traverse around brightly coloured environments surviving among giant creatures and battleing dangerous terrain. Solar Ash will be coming to PlayStation and PC via the Epic Games Store later this year on October 26th.

The Outer Wilds

If you haven’t already played the Outer Worlds, then you have been missing out. Thankfully now is the perfect time to get into it as Annapurna has announced a new expansion to the space adventure. Named Echoes of the Eye, this new expansion will weave into the existing narrative of the Outer Wilds as you prepare to explore the darkest reaches of these worlds. Nothing more has been revealed for this exciting addition just yet, but we will be able to learn all about it ourselves when it releases on PlayStation, Xbox and PC later this year on September 28th.
