How Long Does it Take to Beat Stray?
For the average player not fussed about achievements or exploring every nook and cranny of the game, Stray should take roughly 5 to 8 hours to beat.
You mileage will vary depending on pace, but should still fall within this estimate. And, of course, this number is likely to balloon depending on how often you channel your inner cat. Scratching, napping, paw, and meowing away an hour comes easy in Stray.
For completionists, Stray should take 10 to 12 hours to beat.
Though the game features a few side quests, collectibles, and puzzles off the beaten story path, it’s a condensed affair. Even obtaining all the trophies, including one that requires our Stray nap for a full real-time hour, won’t push the playtime too much.
How Many Chapters Does Stray Have?
Stray has a total of 12 chapters for players to sink their teeth into. Here’s a full, spoiler-free, list of the Stray chapters:
- Inside the Wall
- Dead City
- The Flat
- The Slums
- The Slums – Part 2
- Dead End
