Grand Theft Auto V free to claim (and keep) as part of the latest Epic Games Store sale

Fortnite creator Epic Games has made another power move in order to enter the mainstream PC gaming storefront conversation in the face of controversy: Grand Theft Auto V is now available to get (and keep) for free until May 21st, 2020 at 11:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time.

The company explains that this latest promotion coincides with another "Epic Mega Sale" that runs until June 11th, 2020. Though the Epic Games Store has been slow to adopt various quality of life features present on rival PC gaming storefronts such as GOG GALAXY and Steam, it has been compensating for that deficiency by offering a steady stream of free game promotions every week (upgraded from every two weeks) since 2019. That being said, Grand Theft Auto V is undoubtedly the largest title the storefront has offered for free in terms of popularity and mainstream appeal.

Grand Theft Auto V is available for free to anyone with an Epic Games account with Two-Factor Authentication enabled for extra security.

For claiming Grand Theft Auto V on the Epic Games Store, you receive a $10 "Epic Coupon" free of charge. This coupon applies to any purchase on the Epic Games Store valued at $14.99 or more. In addition to this, a new free game will be released every week of the sale, with a rumor that the next game on offer for free is set to be The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.

The Epic Games Store is available for Windows PC at Grand Theft Auto V can be claimed either from within the app or from its dedicated product page on the Epic Games website.
