Epic have offered a few interesting and big games for free in the past but this one might be one of the best so far. Epic Games announced that GTA 5 will now be offered for free. The problem is that you won’t be able to claim it right now.
Soon after the announcement, players have reported that they could not claim it as the browser was showing a 403 Forbidden error page and sometimes showing the 500 error. Many believe that the number of people trying to claim the game might have lead to the crash.
On top of that, Epic has also launched their annual Mega Sale right now which probably brought even more people to their site. If you have no claimed yours, don’t worry because the game will be offered from now until next Thursday, the 21st of May so you still have some days to claim the game.
The GTA 5 that is offered is the Premium edition which will come with the full story experience, free access to GTAO, and all upgrades and content.
