    PC GTA V for PC Free

    For those living under a rock and have not heard, since last Thursday GTA V is free on PC at Epic Games until Thursday 21st May 2020 so only couple of days left, as soon as it went live last Thursday their website was unresponsive and showing 404 errors so maybe it's just as well those who have not heard yet get it now.

    Bought it for the ps4 when it first came out but never really played it but still downloaded it free for the PC ...... just in case.

    I won't post the link as you only have to search for epic games to find their website.

    4 Thanks given to Rhinoz

    No matter how much I hate EPIC Games and their god awful launcher. I'm all up for free games even if I never install it. I only got the EPIC game's launcher for MechWarrior 5 in the first instance.

    The EPIC launcher? its a bag of w*nk keeps trying to send friends requests to random people I've never heard of etc. Also when it updates a game it seems to reserve the entire game again for a 1GB update so if you don't have enough space it wont update. I updated MW5 through it. Patch was like 5GB, I had 40+GB free but it wouldn't do it. Not enough space it claimed.

    If your on about GTA5, I haven't installed it yet as it would suck all my free time away.

    I installed it and then when I went to launch it it wanted paying to use. Assume I should have activated it before the 21st. Removed it and the Epic software.

    Installed GTA5, which amazingly I have never seen or played before.
    I have never been much of a fan of Rockstar games, and the way they rely on shock tactics for publicity and sales.
    It didn't last long on my hard drive. It would not let me do my keyboard/mouse binds the same as I do every other game I play, and I am too old to go learning an new control layout, so it got a fk it, and was promptly uninstalled.

    I claimed it like i've claimed everything else they've done for free. Had some great stuff off there to be honest and personally don't get all the hate towards Epic.
