You can download GTA V for free on PC right now, here’s how

The lockdown gods have shined upon us

Lockdown has seen a time of community spirit like no other. We’ve had quality entertainment from stars deteriorating into hot messes without their usual supervisors, and we’ve had our screens graced by a cohort of new TV shows. But stop in your tracks, because here is something else to get you through isolation… GTA V is now available to download for free!

On Wednesday Epic Games revealed that it would be releasing GTA V to download free for a week.

The offer launched on Thursday and the amount of traffic has already crashed the site. But fear not, for the game is available until 21st May. This means you’ll have plenty of time to cash in on the offer, which once downloaded, you can keep forever.

Since lockdown began, Epic Games has been releasing one new game for free per week, so there will be plenty more games up for grabs.
