    Apparently it's been leaked by the largest Polish gaming news site. The source seems really credible. The giveaway will include Premium Edition of GTA V.

    Doesn't absolutely everybody in the world own this already? Multiple times in many cases, judging by the sales figures.

    Making it free just means more money from the online grind but without the barrier to entry just the same as when it was free on xbox gamepass.

    Aww boo. I was looking forward to it as they were hyping it up. Couldn't care less about Rockstar's games :(

    I'll gladly accept a free copy to play on the PC. It's been long enough since I played it on the 360 and the improved visuals will be fun.

    I presume this will require the Rockstar launcher to run but you won't own it on their store?

    Ahh, they not long changed to 2 facter login required for any free games, I bet this is so all those fortnite accounts switch onto it, I cant imagine many youngsters passing up this offer and forcing some security on the accounts.

    You're almost certainly correct, but... remind me... what BBFC certificate did GTA V get again? :)

    @Rogueywon Some will cry, others will be 2 factored up happily, I do suspect if they playing it right you'll find out after the security bit.

    @THFourteen I'd think so. Similarly, you need the Ubi launcher for Ubisoft games that were given free. It's really annoying.

    I liled that the Ubi stuff requires the Ubi launcher as it means I can install them on Uplay with my other Ubi games without requiring the Epic store loaded. I actually bought AC Odyssey on Epic to use up my voucher from Xmas and just play it through Uplay now.

    On another note, even though all hints are for WD2, I don't own GTA V on any format :) Then again despite owning the rest in one form or another none of them were as fun as GTA 1 for me (PC version only, not the PS1 version).

    I'd prefer that, because -unlike GTA V- I don't have WD2 on PC; not that I've played the Xbone version I do have for that matter...

    Having played gta5, and not WD2, I'd be alot happier with that too.

    Seriously, by this point, there are 90 year old great-grandmothers using GTA5 discs to prop up the wobbly leg on their tables. There are pubs that have removed the darts from their dartbords and replaced them with GTA5 DVDs. Across the developed world, two thirds of waste sent to landfill is currently second-hand copies of GTA5.

    Giving it away free at this point would be taking the piss.

    The free version of GTA 5 will be the Premium Edition, which offers additional content. GTA Online comes free with every version of the game, but this edition will give you a little leg up in the online crimebox mcdvoice

    It's cool that it's the premium edition- the criminal enterprise starter pack made a huge difference to how I played and earned cash in-game when I picked it up (literally my only ever purchase in Online). But these days you can earn far bigger bux doing casino heists, enough to buy whatever motorcyle, office and bunker property you want (Chumash bunker FTW)

    I donít own GTA V, it doesnít really interest me that much, but if it is free, I might as well nag a copy. Same for WD2.

    I assume this has materialized, because Epic's site is crumbling under the huge(?) demand, failing the stress-test :)
