      Because its one of the best selling video games of all time, and now its completely free. I would have thought that was obvious…

      Edit - its actually the 2nd best selling video game of all time behind minecraft.

    Tweet was deleted, any chance that we will really get this?

    • +1

      You need to bear in mind that this was supposed to be a "mystery" game. Also, Epic don't usually announce games prior to release.

      Apparently they also let slip the same post on Instagram a few days ago and then deleted it.

      We will know tonight.

      • AEST or US eastern time?

      • +1

        Also, Epic don't usually announce games prior to release.

        Literally every other week except this one they announce in the client the details of the game that will be free the following week (and then someone posts it here).

        • I was referring to the tweet.

  • Car meetup?

    • keen

  • Awesome!!!!!! Thank you op

    I've never bought a game from them yet have dozens of really good games in my EG library. I had a feeling this was going to be good one since it's now a "Mystery Game" for the first time instead of showing what's coming soon, but this is beyond what I expected. Pretty Epic, Epic.

  • Have most people not played this by now?

    • +1

      I haven't played it, never owned it.

    • too pricey until now

  • +1

    Question is. Will this the full game Including online or will it only include the single player campaign?

  • +2

    i have bought a x360 copy and a ps4 copy. Its amazing to be able to play GTA V on 60fps finally

  • when can we play

    • 11 minutes from now :P Install, run once then straight off to bed I think, or just 'log it'. In case it gets taken down, I have it on PS4 but damn I've always wanted it on PC!

  • Have those free Epic games always go live at 1am AEST?

    • +3

    Great deal by Epic.

    • It's all fun, GTA Online is where it's at though!

      Power of the entire world. Ozbargain is a drop in the ocean in this case.

    • +1

      Not with the crappy NBN we got here it's unlikely we can performance test the thing. Remember Covid-19 going on plenty of people know this deal and hop on the bandwagon internationally

  • That took awhile :) Thanks!

  • +1

    WOW. I refreshed and refreshed and refreshed… Finally…. I got another error =]] 504 instead of 500

  • +4

    Anyone else have the language changed in their launcher when the 500 error comes up and I click on the 'Back to Home' option.

    Mine has now gone from English to French and then English to Russian. LOL

    • +1

      Yeah, it's shagged. Best to wait until morning.

      • I agree. Even if you get through it will probably download at 100 kb/sec

    • Yep, my changed to spanish. Managed to get the game though.

    • I got lucky, came up in Spanish. Puedo practicar mi espanol!

    • Yeah Chinese shown up

      Thought their servers got taken over by the Chinese.

    94GB download lol

  • I could load the website, but I can't find GTAV

  • Any one have direct link?

  • When we click "Back to home", we can start learning many different languages, I'm still learning.

  • Can someone provide a direct link?

  • +2

    I stayed up just to download it before it got pulled… I wish I went to bed earlier. Oh well! Can't wait. I have no issue with Epic either. But just goes to show how much demand GTA still generates even though it's an old game!

  • So no game? I get error 500

  • Got my laptop downloading it for me now. Thanks for the alert OP! Great deal. Fantastic deal. So true!

  • +1

    Confirmed works fine. You all just lack patience. Relax, it's available till 22nd May…

    Didn't ask for 2FA nor have I ever had it enabled.

    • All users will eventually be asked to do it. The last thing the want is all their users trying to do it on the same day and crash the 2fa migration site.

  • A lot of working from home request will be lodged next week, lol

  • From a Unexpected error occurred to Ocorreu um erro inesperado. 😂

  • Well website is working for me now but the game is pulled from the store?

    Just logged onto Epic Launcher and added it to library. No issues at all.

    Already have it on steam, but don't have the pack. Might have to make a new login I suppose.
