Can't quite confirm yet because Epic Games deleted the tweet, but they're about to offer Grand Theft Auto V for free to members between the 14th and 21st (USA) of May on PC. Rumored to be the 'premium edition'.

Have downloaded the Epic Games Launcher in anticipation. 

 

My bad if it turns out to be something wacky like Minesweeper 2020 instead.

I already have it on all platforms that matter, not sure I would bother adding an epic version because of the lack of features on that store.

Guess I better find another hard drive if Epic Games are going to keep releasing big boys like this for free.

I used the app, and altho that threw up some errors, it let me "purchase" the game.

I';m also assuming this is just the first phase of GTA6 marketing... get people hooked on the game so they are more likely to buy GTA6 when it comes out "soon"

The game for free crashed the epic game store.. there must have been many people who don't have it already (i was one of them), so may give people a chance to play enjoy and maybe buy GTA6

GTA 5 has sold 120  million copies and still is one of the best selling games 7 years after coming out, my son owns 5 copies of it because he keeps getting blocked online because of the mods.
