The mysterious game that the Epic Games Store will give away tomorrow would be GTA
The Epic Games Store offers free games every week, and while normally renewing the weekly game announces what will be next week’s gift, the last week decided to keep it a secret, implying that it could be a great gift. According to an anonymous but well-informed source, this secret game would be Grand Theft Auto V, which can be redeemed for free until May 21.
If the rumor is true, Epic would give away nothing more and nothing less than the Premium Edition. In addition to the base game and access to Grand Theft Auto Online, it also includes additional content, such as cars, real estate, and money. As usual, just downloading the game during the promotion will be yours permanently.
The promotion report is quite surprising when you consider that GTA V is a huge game that remains popular even almost seven years after its release. Only six months ago, it exceeded 115 million copies sold. GTA V was also the second best-selling game on the British market during the past week. It doesn’t stop there; In the United States, the title hasn’t broken out of the top 20 best-selling games in nearly eighty months.
If the report is true, Rockstar’s intention would probably be to expand the clientele for GTA Online’s microtransactions, a game mode responsible for a substantial portion of the company’s profits. Last year, Grand Theft Auto Online made more money than in 2018.
