GTA V is on the Epic Games Store for free until May 21. At the time of writing, the website has crashed due to overwhelming traffic, so patience is key.
To be specific, Epic is offering Grand Theft Auto V – Premium Edition. This version of the game comes with the full story experience, all existing gameplay content and access to Grand Theft Auto Online for free. All you need is a free Epic Games Store account.
