GTA 5 Premium Edition is now available for free; Details
The official announcement about the GTA 5 Premium Edition comes just hours after accidentally posting information online on the Epic Games Store Twitter account. The game is now available in the store as part of the weekly free game offer. The premium version offers GTA online cash bonuses to players as part of the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, but it is unlikely that you will be able to get the game for free immediately.
This is because the interest in the deal seems overwhelming to Epic Games Store servers. The company acknowledged in a tweet that it was “currently experiencing high traffic” reveals that this traffic could result in slow loading time, 500 errors or direct crashes. Epic Games asked interested players to practice patience because it works to solve the problem.
High traffic and store crashes aren’t really a big deal. Because this deal offers a lot of possibilities to purchase for one week. As part of the deal, interested gamers will be able to play and keep their purchases outside of the offer period. This offer is basically a valid purchase without any money.
The interesting thing about service disruption is that high traffic also affects fornets across multiple platforms. If you want to get the game, sign up for an Epic Games account and download the Epic Games launch. It is worth noting that you need to enable 2 FA (2-factor authentication) to make any purchases in the store. Outside of GTA 5, the Epic Games Store offers one free game per week to justify the effort.
