Cyberpunk 2077 Free Trial Begins This Week, Lets You Play For Five Hours

Haven't tried the RPG yet? Now's your chance.


CD Projekt Red has announced a free trial for Cyberpunk 2077, and it's going live soon. The free trial for the RPG will be available March 28-31 across PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

During the free period, users can play for a total of five hours. There is no general subscription requirement on PlayStation and Xbox, except in Germany where PS5 owners without a PS Plus subscription have to pay a feel of €0.15 due to Sony's policies in the region.

A FAQ for the free trial also confirms that it can be played only once--after five hours, the trial is over and cannot be restarted. All save progress from the trial carries forward if players decide to buy the game outright. The FAQ also confirms this trial is for the base game only, not the Phantom Liberty expansion.

In terms of its file size, the trial requires players to download the entire game--this is about 99.3 GB on PS5 and 103 GB on Xbox Series X|S. Finally, there is no trial on PC due to "technical reasons."

Cyberpunk 2077 released in December 2020 and had a challenging launch marred by a range of issues. CD Projekt steadily supported the game and it's in a much better shape these days. To date, the game has sold more than 25 million copies.

Phantom Liberty was Cyberpunk 2077's one and only expansion. It brings back Keanu Reeves' Johnny Silverhand and introduces a character named Solomon Reed, who is played by Idris Elba. For more, check out GameSpot's 10/10 review of Phantom Liberty.

CD Projekt Red is now developing a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel and is making a live-action project with Anonymous Content.
