Epic Games Store : Free Game (14th May – 21st May 2020)
A quick summary of the free game from the Epic Games Store available until 21st May 2020. You’d be mad not to grab this one!
Grand Theft Auto V
What began as a ‘Mystery Game’ on the Epic Games Store has now been revealed as Rockstar Games’ massively successful title – Grand Theft Auto V. Epic Games accidentaly leaked the reveal on Twitter which was quickly caught by gaming fans, and later confirmed as accurate.
GTA V has a huge map to explore, an action packed story featuring the three protogonists – Michael, Trevor and Franklin, and more side missions than you can point a gun at.
Unlike the previous entry in the series – Grand Theft Auto IV – the single player story mode in GTA V did not receive any additional DLC as was hoped. Instead, Rockstar Games focussed on the online side of things.
What’s been added to GTA Online?
Grand Theft Auto Online is free to play for owners of Grand Theft Auto V – although ‘Shark Cards’ are available to buy which provides extra in game currency. GTA Online is set in the same location as GTA V – Los Santos – and features a huge amount of activities, missions and challenges. Work with, or against the other players online to commit crimes and build up your criminal empire.
Rockstar Games have been hard at work on keeping Grand Theft Auto Online fresh since its release in 2013. New missions and content like Heists, Bunkers, Nightclubs and Casino DLC updates have been added to the game. New vehicles, weapons and clothing options to customise your character are also frequently added. The updates to the game have all been free, however the content is becoming increasingly expensive to purchase.
Thankfully, there are often events which pay out double rewards – 2X GTA$ and RP – and selected discounts on properties, equipment and vehicles are ways to make your GTA cash go further.
It has been seven years since the release of GTA V, which is currently the longest wait between entries in the series. Here’s hoping that Rockstar Games don’t keep us waiting too much longer for the next instalment – a return to Vice City, please?
