Epic Game Store Accidentally Confirms Grand Theft Auto 5 as Free Game
It has been seven years since the initial release of Grand Theft Auto 5 and the game has managed to keep fans entertained through its expansive world, fun game mechanics, and a stream of updates. For players who have been wanting to play the critically acclaimed Grand Theft Auto title, a mistimed tweet from the Epic Games Store suggests that the title will be freely available from the merchant soon.
The original Grand Theft Auto came out in 1997 and as the series went on in it expanded its worlds, graphics, and gave players the ability to do an increasing amount. As a result, the Grand Theft Auto series has been a key part of the developers, Rockstar Games, development and a lot of players look forward to the titles. Many fans had been excited by rumors that Grand Theft Auto 5 would be coming to the PC for free and this now seems to be the case.
The game has not been fully acknowledged to be arriving for free, but Twitter user Wario64 did manage to obtain the promotional video for the announcement. The advertisement looks legitimate and players may want to be alert to the appearance of the game on the Epic Games Store as this offer will only run until May 21. Players who have not used the Epic Games Store in a while will also have to familiarise themselves with the new two-step authentication system that is in place. With that said, this should not take players long to do and they should be able to start playing Grand Theft Auto 5 pretty quickly.
Grand Theft Auto 5 has sold consistently since its release, and this offer may encourage players who have avoided the title to explore the large world of the game. With that said, after selling over 110 million copies most players likely have some experience with the game. There is plenty to uncover for players who have not spent much time on the game and experienced gamers may be tempted to pick up the game yet again for its online experience as it introduces new mechanics and activities.
The latest Grand Theft Auto game has had a huge impact on the gaming industry and as a result, many players will be keen to pick up the title while it is free. The sizable game does not only offers hours of entertainment but the Grand Theft Auto 5 community is still creating quality content for players to engage with and enjoy.
