This is one ripper of a deal, and ~the best is that the key is Linked to your main Origin Account (despite the need for separate Epic account).~ update: looks like you still need to sign in to your Indian epic account when you launch.
- You will need VPN to India (I have SurfShark and TorGuard. Got both VPNs from ozbargain as well. Any VPN will work).
- Create another Epic store account for India (if you have gmail, just do what I did: [email protected]). You can't use your main Epic one
- Setup 2FA (Email is fine) to claim Free GTA V (to activate the $10 USD coupon).
- Make sure you order the Deluxe Edition (the standard one is $14.94 USD, below the $15 threshold to use the coupon). Delux edition is $17.54 which will discount to US$7.54 = ~ AU$12.13
- Checkout, make sure you either use an Indian PayPal account, or a CC that allows international transaction.
- Login to Epic using your Indian Epic account, and when you hit Install, it will ask for your Origin account to link / activate the game.
Lowest price guaranteed for PC so far, and this is the Deluxe Edition that comes with extra goodies! I could launch this directly from Origin without the need for Epic :) . This is currently AU$49.99 after coupon on the Aussie store, so $38 saving!
