The Epic Store is releasing one of the most popular titles in the world, Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar Games, for free today until May 21.

If you add the game to your library, it’ll be available forever, even if you don’t download it until May 21. Apart from the storyline campaign, you’ll be able to play GTA V online, which has several servers, including roleplay and deathmatch.

Although GTA V isn’t a new game by any means, it still requires a good PC to run it. The minimum requirements are an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz or an AMD Phenom 9850 @ 2.5GHz, 4GB of RAM, a NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB or an AMD HD 4870 1GB, and 65 GB available on your hard disk, according to Rockstar’s official information.
