Grand Theft Auto V will reportedly be offered as a free download through the Epic Games Store from Thursday.
Epic said last week that the marketplace’s current free title, Death Coming, would be replaced by a “mystery game” on May 14.
According to Game Pressure, GTA V and “a lot of additional content” will be free for one week on Epic’s marketplace. Along with access to Grand Theft Auto Online, all the content will be free to keep forever if added to your library during the promotional period, it’s claimed.
UPDATE: An advertisement has seemingly confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V will be free until May 21.
UPDATE 2: The Epic Games Store and Launcher are experiencing issues including crashes after GTA V was released as a free game.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: The report was seemingly backed up by Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad.
Free titles on the Epic Games Store now “periodically” require that two-factor authentication be activated on users’ accounts before they’re able to be claimed.
Grand Theft Auto 6 is Rockstar’s next game but remains early in development, according to a recent report into working practices at the company.
