Since its launch, the Epic Games store has a habit of regularly offering players games to download for free, but the group is hitting very (very) hard with GTA V. No doubt Epic should register many new subscribers thanks to to Rockstar Games, and this GTA V to download for free until May 21. Obviously, the servers had a hard time supporting the influx of visitors, and the Epic Games Store has tended to crash regularly since the arrival of GTA V. Patience.
