As the entire world is suffering from Coronavirus pandemic, Epic Games Store tried to help all the gamers by making Rockstar Studios' Grand Theft Auto or GTA 5 completely free of cost for a week. GTA 5 can be downloaded for free until May 21 on the Epic Games Store.
It won't be wrong to say that GTA 5 is one of the most iconic video games of all time. Rockstar Studios' game has been sold over 120 million copies, making it one of the highest-earning video games of all time. The latest edition in the GTA series is currently being offered completely free of cost until May 21 on the Epic Games Store.
Not only this, but the free GTA 5 version for PC also is not the basic version of the game, instead, it is one of the premium editions that come with a $1 million cash bonus that users can spend inside GTA online.
After Epic Games announced that they have made GTA 5 completely free, thousands of users head to the store to get their hands on the free copy of the game. This resulted in crashing the website, which was later resolved by the developers.
