GTA 5 Giveaway On Epic Games Store Brought People Over

Epic Games have been offering free games for some time now in hopes to draw in the crowd and have more people playing on the Epic Games launcher and while they had offered a few interesting games in the past, the one game that really got the attention of the players was GTA 5.

The game was offered for free in May followed by other popular games like Civilization VI, Ark: Survival Evolved, and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. According to Steve Allison’s general manager, the promotion was a huge success and that they have been growing at a historic rate.

While some people have applauded Epic for offering publishers and developers a bigger share of revenue compared to other stores like Steam, others have criticized them for securing exclusives with the company leading to many not being able to play the PC version of the game through Steam.
