Cyberpunk 2077 PS5 and Xbox Series X and S Free Trial Set for This Week

CD Projekt has announced a free trial of Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S, available from March 28-31.

The trial goes live at 8am PDT on March 28 and ends 11:59pm on March 31. It offers five hours of unrestricted gameplay, and does not require any additional fees or subscriptions (so no need for PlayStation Plus or Xbox Game Pass, for example). It does not include expansion Phantom Liberty.

Here’s the official blurb from CD Projekt:

This is the ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 experience — during the free trial period, players will have access to the base game, which includes all previous updates, such as the groundbreaking Update 2.0 featuring major gameplay overhauls and new features like redesigned skill trees and perks, vehicle combat, a new police system, and more. Players will also be able to experience Update 2.1, which introduced a fully functional metro system, the ability to listen to in-game radio stations outside of vehicles via the radioport, new vehicles, and more to the game. After the free trial ends, players who decide to purchase Cyberpunk 2077 will have their progress seamlessly carried over to the full version of the game.

Cyberpunk 2077 suffered a disastrous launch back in 2020, but CD Projekt stuck with the game and successfully turned it around in one of the most remarkable redemption stories in video game history. CD Projekt is now working on a sequel, codenamed Orion, although don’t expect to see anything of it for years.
