CD Projekt RED are giving players a chance to try out Cyberpunk 2077’s new-gen upgrade and here’s how anyone can play the free trial on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

The Cyberpunk 2077 1.5 patch is slowly rolling out to players worldwide on February 15. Among plenty of bug fixes, the devs are also releasing a new trial for players wanting to test out the next-gen update.

Shortly after CP2077’s initial release, the game was marred with enough technical mishaps to get it pulled from online stores as buyers demanded a refund.

But CDPR have been cracking away at making the game a lot more stable and are now giving audiences a risk-free chance at a second impression.
