You can now get Grand Theft Auto V for free from the Epic Games Store. However, the offer is only available for a limited time, so you need to be quick to grab a copy of the game. Still, even seven years after its release, GTA V is worth playing.
Since the Epic Games Store was launched in 2018, Epic Games has donated dozens of games for free. However, nothing is as great as GTA V, which will be available for free download until May 21, 2020. And this is Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Edition, at least one.
