Epic Games have released many free games over the past year, mostly as an incentive to entice players to be more active on their platform. Over time, it’s brought up quite a bit of backlash, especially with Steam users where they have seen some of their beloved games become exclusives to Epic.
This time though, Epic Games have gone all out and managed to secure a free copy of GTA V to everyone. Arguably their best free game to be released yet. It was a big shock to most, even causing the Epic Games website to go temporarily down as users rushed to the site.
You can redeem your copy of GTA V on the Epic Games website here. Once redeemed, you will have to play the game through the Epic Launcher, it can’t be added to your Steam account. You have until May 21st to redeem the game, after that it will return to it’s original store price.
