GTA 5 goes free to play on PC today at 4pm

Yesterday, we head a rumour that GTA 5 would be going free to download and keep on PC.

The Rockstar game was rumoured to be the next free game being made available on the Epic Games Store this week, after an unnamed but reliable source contacted GamePressure, informing the site about the upcoming promotion.

Though Epic Games itself has not yet outlined its plans, a countdown ending at 4pm UK time has appeared over on the PC storefront, suggesting this is when you'll be able to start downloading the game for free.

We'll keep you updated as more information is officially declared, but at the time of writing the stars seem to be aligning for a free version of GTA 5 ready to claim later today.

If you needed further evidence that all this free game chatter is real, and that the promotion will be kicking off shortly, you need look no further than Reddit.

It seems Rockstar accidentally published up a tweet earlier than they should have – revealing the details about GTA V's free status from 4pm today.

"Get Grand Theft Auto V free on PC until May 21. Yours to download and keep forever on the Epic Games Store" the tweet read.

It was, of course, promptly deleted. But this is the internet, so of course someone managed to capture a screenshot before it was scrubbed (above).

The original rumour suggested that the free download will be for the Premium Edition of GTA 5, which typically is bundled with the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack. For more details on what you get with the Premium Edition, read on!
