Cyberpunk 2077 has undergone a reasonably vital transformation since its dumpster fireplace launch in 2020. CD Projekt Pink’s city-sprawling RPG received a next-gen replace, a 2.0 patch that essentially alters the way you construct a personality and battle by the streets of Evening Metropolis, and to prime all of it off, the staff launched a stellar growth in 2023’s Phantom Liberty. Should you have been scared off by the glitches and crashes of 2020, now’s an ideal time to provide the sport a second probability, as CD Projekt Pink is providing a free trial of the sport this weekend.

The five-hour trial is obtainable now on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Collection X/S and can final till Sunday, March 31, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. CD Projekt Pink says it isn’t providing this trial for PC gamers as a result of “technical causes.” Should you like what you play and select to purchase the complete sport, any progress you make in the course of the trial will carry over. Nevertheless, the trial doesn’t embrace the Phantom Liberty growth. This is smart as a result of it will take you at the least a few hours to succeed in the purpose the place the growth is playable anyway.

Having been there for each stage of Cyberpunk 2077’s rollercoaster experience of dangerous launches and game-changing updates, I can suggest the sport because it exists right this moment with out a ton of caveats. Certain, I nonetheless assume Cyberpunk 2077’s cynical worldview and peculiar stereotyping of some characters and communities is price inspecting, however when CD Projekt Pink’s staff is at its finest, it places out some extremely memorable characters and storylines, and this sport actually displays that.

Massive adjustments like the two.0 replace supplying you with new ability bushes and construct customizations make attending to these moments all the higher, and whereas there are nonetheless some inherent flaws, it’s one of the best Cyberpunk 2077 has ever been. So, in case you’ve received nothing happening this weekend, head over to the PlayStation or Xbox store and obtain the free trial.
