While a lot of Microsoft console loyalists have exchanged the life of a hooligan who beats up random men and women on the street for an outlaw who steals horses thanks to Grand Theft Auto 5 leaving Xbox Game Pass for Red Dead Redemption 2, those who are advocates of the Epic Games store are now able to download GTA 5 for free. Here you’ll discover how long it is available for free and how you can download the Premium Edition.

GTA 5 becoming free on the Epic Games store was one of the worst kept secrets and surprises and it resulted in the Fortnite developer’s launcher and store completely crashing thanks to everyone rushing to it like panic buyers brawling over toilet paper. However, as of writing, the issues with the store and launcher no longer seem to be happening so you should be able to do your business without being greeted by an error 500.

Below you’ll discover how long the Rockstar title is available for free and how you can download the Premium Edition while it’s available for the price of nada.

How long is GTA 5 free on the Epic Games store?

GTA 5 is only available for free on the Epic Games store for seven days.

You can only download GTA 5 for free from the Epic Games store until 16:00 on May 21st.

This is when the hugely generous offer will disappear meaning those who are currently living under a rock will need to fork up £24.99 if they want to own the game once the deadline has passed.

While you only have seven days to download the game for free, know that you will keep it forever.
