CD Projekt Red Announces Free Cyberpunk 2077 Trial For PS5 And Xbox Series X|S

Get a taste of Night City if you haven't already.

Story Highlights

  • CD Projekt Red has announced a free trial period for its mega-hot RPG Cyberpunk 2077. 
  • The trial will run between March 28 and March 31 on the Xbox Series X|S consoles and PS5. 
  • You don’t have to be subscribed to a membership to play the trial, whose runtime is 5 hours. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is the smash-hit RPG that Polish developer CD Projekt Red envisioned to work wonders several years ago, but it’s only in relatively recent memory that the first-person shooter managed to take off like it should have back when it first came out. In an attempt to get more folks to observe how far the title has come, CDPR has announced a free trial of Cyberpunk 2077 for the Xbox Series X|S and PS5.

A couple of details that you should know before moving ahead: The trial period isn’t going to stick around forever, and is only scheduled to run between March 28 and March 31. However, it’s free to download and play and also doesn’t require a subscription to the respective platform’s premier membership service i.e. Xbox Game Pass or PlayStation Plus. 

No Fun For Those On PC Though

Unfortunately, you pretty much got it with that subheading. The free trial is only available to download from the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store, and won’t be available for those on PC. Might as well be on the lookout for any pertinent sales on Steam, and you just might get lucky enough.
