Epic Games has announced that Grand Theft Auto V is this week’s free game that people can download and play at home.

Every week, Epic Games has been releasing a free mystery available without charge in its online store. The games are available for PCs and Macs.

Originally released in 2013, Grand Theft Auto V is made by Rockstar Games and is one of the all time top selling games. It has an age rating, meaning it is only suitable for those ages 18 and above.


The game made available for download, Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Edition, includes the complete GTAV story, Grand Theft Auto Online and all existing gameplay upgrades and content. You’ll also get the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, the fastest way to jumpstart your criminal empire in GTA Online.

GTA 5 became available to download for free yesterday and within hours, crashed the Epic Games website.
