GTA is no ordinary gaming series, and GTA V is simply among the very best of the best. In fact, it was also the best-selling game on PS 4 in April, even years after its launch. And now, the same could very well hold true for PC in May. In fact, the Epic Games website even crashed after the huge influx of users flooding it once the reports confirmed that GTA V was indeed free to acquire.

Once the store website is back up and running, you’ll need to create an account or simply log in on an existing one. Signing up for a new one won’t take too long either. Once you are logged in, simply head to the “Free Games” section, where you’ll see GTA V featuring there. Click on Get, and you’re all set once the game downloads.

While many believe this move is a marketing strategy for GTA 6, it is likely just a way of surging the player count for GTA Online.
