You must also have two factor setup to get the game.

Gta5 is free.
Epic store is down due to high traffic.

Nope, can't see any connection here at all.

I beat the game before it left Game Pass. I have no reason to go back to it. Didn't care too much for it.

Epic needs to stop running their store on a bag of potatoes.

I've been trying since this morning with no luck. Hopefully the store recovers before tonight so we can actually redeem it.

It just worked for me. I had to hit reload about 2 times and it went through. Now I just need a computer that can actually run it now.

If you're already logged in go to this link. It takes you straight to the checkout page to redeem the game. I found this on Reddit and it surprisingly worked.

I have the client open and was able to claim the game (though I already own it anyway). Strangely though, everything was in German. Even though in the settings "English" is selected and the check out page was in English.. Everything else - German. If it was in French, I could at least use what I learned.

Far Cry 5 for $5 after the $10 off code.......thoughts? Is it worth a play through? I haven't played a far cry game since far cry 3.

I got it!  Seemed good for $5.  reminds me of classic Steam sales.

The game editor is probably worth it alone for $5 ... I have it for X1 but might grab it just for the PC boost. One of the most robust editors I’ve seen in a game in awhile.

Epic Games gets a lot of hate but I have like 100 free games from them so far, plus the coupons have gotten me 2 great games for $5 a piece. Cant complain

Has anyone played that game Superliminal? Looked pretty cool and with the $10 coupon I can grab it for $5. Just curious if it's actually worth my time

If you like FC3 and/or FC4: absolutely.

You'll like FC5.

 

It's a steal for $5.

 

It's more of the same, more or less...w/ some tweaks, changes, and better graphics, a different setting and whatnot to the FC3 open-world formula.

 

They're all solid games.

Yep. And it probably worked too.

 

And then there's also the Free $10 coupon earned for grabbing GTA5...and  then buying anything will also net you another $10 coupon that's good until sometimes in November.

 

Also, probably worked on Rockstar's and Take-2's side, too. I wonder how many people now will get into the MTX-infested & Shark Card-infested waters of GTA: Online b/c of this. They probably wanted & needed more players and revenue for GTA:O - so, they probably figured..."Why not give this one away?"

 

Plus, this is great promotion for Take-2 and Rockstar...especially if GTA6 is going to be announced soon and/or coming soon.

Uh oh, I think they figured out I don't buy anything

Edit: if you get this message and can't redeem it's probably because of your IP, FYI

The next free games are supposedly Civilization 6, Borderlands Handsome Collection, and Ark Survival Evolved.
