    I've only played through on ps3 so the jump in performance will be nice. Seeing as it's at 6% after over an hour though who knows when I'll see it.

    How do you get it, by getting gta or just by logging in?

    It says that if you 'buy' the freebie the voucher gets autopurchased too.
    It is nice that whatever final voucher you get lasts until November too. I used the last Xmas one last month on AC Odyssey Gold.
    Not sure what I wabt in this sale though even with the discount (Metro Exodus Gold is one I would like (I did complete base game on Game Pass though) but still hoping for a GOG release)

    Does this still require Rockstar's shitty downloader, or does it download via the Epic Store one?

    Even the steam version requires the Rockstar Launcher to play, I cant imagine it being not the same. Not to downloadd tho, that'll be where you bought it from like most other games.

    So I have standard GTA V bought from Rockstar (technically a RS download code bought on sale from Amazon). If I run the Epic version it'll ask me to link my account. Can I then unlink the account and keep the premium bonuses? Hmm. Gonna have to try that.

    I don't mind the Epic launcher (been playing a ton of Crashlands lately from when it was free on the EGS) but I'm all for the simplicity.

    I've warmed to Epic since all the free stuff.

    Fickle, yet easily swayed, bunch aren't we? :)

    Downloaded but I cannot get past the captchas. Even when I eventually do stop making "mistakes" and get the blue tick, I then click next and it says invalid captcha. I'm 30-40 in and have given up for now.

    @Martini_Bikini Keep trying from time to time dude, particularly (if you have the option) when it should be quieter in your region, i.e. late at night or early in the morning.
    It should still be up for grabs for 6 days apparently so don't fret :)

    I tried for hours yesterday to no avail, getting blocked at various points in the process but late last night I finally got through. Still took ages to download though (90 fucking gigs, goodness)

    Incidentally, I'm utterly shit at the game, I can't even get past the driving tutorial o_O

    Make sure you click the squares that even have a tiny bit of the thing you're after. And a crosswalk seems to be a zebra crossing.

    Store question: is just purchasing enough without downloading? Or do you have a period to download then it disappears?

    You add it your library and download at your leisure.

    So, yes, you can hoard games.

    The captchas were annoying, the HOUR LONG WAIT for an email validation confirmation email to turn up and requiring it to be confirmed to launch the game took the piss, though.

    @frightlever I doubt you have anything you can do to pass any wealth from account to account unless its a ingame mechanic.

    Couldn't use my rockstar login when a friend and myself shared steam accounts a long time ago, with mine not being on steam.

    They wanted to stop people fiddling things to get money unless its a shark card code, none of the premium stuff is transferable at all.

    Oh I definitely got the captchas correct, without a doubt. Staring inches away from my large screen. There were NO fire hydrants left. I'm now locked out for being a bot. Ha ha!

    Oh well.
