With 120 million copies sold so far, GTA 5 is available for free on Epic Games Store.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the cult classics in the world of gaming with over 120 million copies sold so far since its launch in 2013. Only Minecraft and Tetris are above GTA 5 in sales which speak volumes about the popularity of the game. The GTA 5 is a multi-platform game with a single- character story arc. PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows are the different platforms supporting GTA 5. In a major development, Rockstar Games’ 2013 game will be available for free till May 21, 2020. 

 GTA 5

Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5 became available for free from Thursday morning on the Epic Games Store. The Windows PC version of GTA 5 is this week's free game, unlocked at 11 AM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) as a free download until May 21, according to Epic Games. News of the game’s Thursday release came through a tweet from Epic Games on Wednesday night. 

Players that download GTA 5 in the current week will be available to keep and play the game for free beyond May 21. The only condition for the gamers is to add two-factor authentication on their accounts. Epic Games added the two-factor authentication on April 28 and will be expiring on May 21. Gamers won’t have to enable the security feature post-May 21. Epic Games was offering free games on its platform last year and would continue to offer free games in 2020 also. 

 Grand Theft Auto 5

Due to the widespread demand for GTA 5, the Epic Games Store was down for 8 hours as everyone tried to get their hand on the game for free. The Premium Edition of GTA V available on Epic Game Store includes the complete GTA V story, Grand Theft Auto Online and all existing gameplay upgrades and content according to the Rockstar studio. The studio is also offering the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack and $1,000,000 bonus cash for GTA Online. 

Reason for the continued success of GTA 5 is due to its constant popularity with streamers over the last few years. Role-playing servers have been a constant presence in the online GTA but the NoPixel server has helped the online community to get a spotlight. 

Grand Theft Auto 5’s success is baffling for many considering the Red Dead Redemption 2 on both PC and gaming consoles were a huge hit. The low price, good updates and growing popularity with streamers have made Grand Theft Auto 5 a hit of the decade. Sales in 2019 hit a new high after its launch in 2013.
