With Grand Theft Auto V unlocking at 1am AEST tonight and available to add to your Epic Games Store collection to keep. The offer will expire on May 21. Epic took to Twitter to make the announcement, which brings the biggest game of all time to the PC storefront. No word on how it will play with mods, but this is a pretty major scoop for the service.
Being a game that has been a top seller since its debut in 2013 (the PC version arrived in 2015) there's a chance you've played this. Or, maybe you've got it on console and haven't jumped into it on PC. Our review was of the original Xbox 360 version - which just goes to show you the staying power of Grand Theft Auto V.
Edit: The offer is now online, but the Epic Games site is struggling with the load so is currently unavailable - try again later!
wow, they must have paid rockstar a f*** ton of cash. the game is always on the monthly highest seller lists so it's still selling like hotcakes even after 7 years.
It's basically a F2P game at this point so they'll probably end up making a net profit even if Epic didn't pay them anything.
Finally they found the freebie that gets literally everyone to sign up for EGS! Kinda surprised that they're having capacity issues given they do Fortnite. (I would not be surprised to hear they're blaming a DDOS at some point.)
Yeah it's working again now.
I already have on Steam but grabbed it again on Epic just cause I could.
Sweet, nabbed it. Thanks for the heads up!
