First, to get your hands on the free GTA 5 video game, visit the Epic Games Store website. Then, register yourself for a free Epic Games account. You won't have to make an account if you already have played games, like Fortnite. 

Enter all the necessary details to complete your profile details after you log in for the first time. Epic Games enables 2FA or Two-Factor authentication to ensure the utmost security. 


If you aren't so sure about how to do it, then here's how: Account > Passwords and security > Establish 2FA to set up your account.

Download and Launch

Next up, click on the “Get Epic Games” located on the top right corner and download it from the Epic Games store. The download can take several minutes to install GTA 5 on your Windows-powered device. 

Do make sure that you have the right system as this game won't work if you have an ARM-based Windows machine. Lastly, after the installation and launch, login to your Epic Games account to play the game.


Visit Store And Pay

After you have successfully logged in, click on the “Store” button on the navigation sidebar. You will also be able to see the gaming list on the Epic Games store.
