Confirmed: Grand Theft Auto 5 will be available for free on Epic Games Store until May 21st [Now Available]

In a deleted tweet, Epic Games confirmed that this week’s free Epic Games Store game will be Grand Theft Auto 5. And while Epic Games was quick to react, Wario64 was able to capture the deleted tweet ad.

Grand Theft Auto 5 will be available in twelve hours from now. Obviously someone at Epic Games got confused between AM and PM, and that’s why the tweet went live earlier. Still, it’s good knowing which game Epic will be giving away.

Grand Theft Auto 5 will be available for free until May 21st. Naturally, once you acquire your free copy, you’ll be able to keep it forever. We also don’t know whether this version will support mods or not.

Lastly, it’s worth mentioning that GTA5 can look great even to this date with some mods. Not only that, but there are a lot of mods that add new characters/super heroes, as well as missions and custom maps. Therefore, we suggest visiting this page in order to find the mods we’ve covered over the past few years.

UPDATE:

The game is now available and you can acquire your free copy from here. Do note that Epic is currently receiving a lot of traffic. As such, Epic Games Store is currently down. Epic is working on fixing these connection issues,
