You’ll be pleased to hear that GTA V was free on Epic Games, however, for a limited time. GTA V is almost nine years old and has broken almost all records in the video game categories. Players worldwide enjoy outstanding graphics, gameplay, storylines, missions, etc.
GTA V is one of the best games for gamers who love action-adventure games. However, if you haven’t played the game yet, you can play for free on PC thanks to Epic Games Store.
In May 2020, the Epic Games Store offered Grand Theft Auto 5 for free for a limited time. This caused a frenzy among gamers, with many rushing to download the game during the offer period. However, the offer was only available from May 14, 2020, until 11 AM ET on May 21, 2020. Those who were able to grab the game during that time were able to download it for free and keep it forever.
While there is no news yet of whether or not Epic Games Store will offer Grand Theft Auto 5 for free again, there is a possibility that they might in the future. The offer was hugely popular and did wonders for the Epic Games Store, bringing in millions of new users. According to documents disclosed during the Epic v. Apple trial, the offer brought in over 7 million new users to the online marketplace. This massive influx of new users shows that the offer was incredibly successful, and it’s possible that Epic Games Store may want to replicate that success in the future.
Will we get a free version similar to the one made available in 2020? Epic Games usually makes various games in their collection for free for a limited time. No confirmation on whether GTA V will again feature in the free game promotion list.
There are chances that it might again be included, although very minimal. On the bright side, if it were to be made free again, we expect Epic Games to use the same format they used during the previous launch in May 2020.
However, it’s important to note that there is no guarantee that the game will be offered for free again. The offer was a limited-time promotion, and there’s no telling if or when it will be repeated. Nonetheless, the fact that the game was offered for free in 2020 demonstrates the potential for similar promotions in the future. For those who missed out on the previous offer, they can keep an eye out for any future promotions from Epic Games Store, which may include Grand Theft Auto 5 or other popular titles.
Rockstar’s and Epic Games’ move to make GTA V free on Epic Games Store proved smart. The next generation of consoles is here with us, and this was a strategy to make it easier for gamers to enjoy the game. This means that the move will bring Epic Gamers more users willing to pay for the game microtransactions. The deal proved a win-win for everyone; gamers get the free version provided they use the Epic Games platform.
The free package included the game’s complete story experience and access to the evolving GTA online world. In addition, players who got their free version got gameplay updates for forthcoming games such as The Doomsday Heist and Smuggler’s run.
There was also a Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack included in the free Premium Edition. Getting this package is the ideal way for players to begin their criminal empires. The Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack gave players access to weapons, properties, businesses, vehicles, etc. it also comes with a GTA$1,000,000 bonus available 7 to days after creating their online character.
If GTA V is to be made available for free on Epic Games, we expect it to follow the same criteria used in 2020 for players to get their free version. First, players must have an Epic Games account. They will have to open their account and ensure that two-factor authentication is enabled. This feature is crucial as it prevents unauthorized access. It is easy to activate this feature in the account’s security settings.
Next is to find the free GTA V game version in the extensive game library. The page will direct you with easy steps until you successfully get your free game version.
