Epic Games Store Crashes As GTA 5 Arrives For FREE On Store


It’s been just a few minutes since GTA 5 went live on Epic Games Store for free. And, the popularity of the game is such that Epic Games Store went down due to the insane amount of traffic.

Players have been waiting for this moment since the rumor that GTA 5 is available for free on Epic Games Store surfaced on the internet. However, for now, all they can do is wait before getting GTA 5 completely free.

Apparently, when players are trying to access the Epic Games Store website, all they’re getting is a 504 gateway error.
Epic Games quickly addressed the issue, stating that they are experiencing high traffic on Epic Games Store. That’s why users are encountering slow loading times, 500 errors, or launcher crashing at this time.

However, the Epic Games store is working at scale to get the launcher and website working as soon as possible.

An enormous game store went down due to high traffic indicating that fans are going crazy over GTA 5 being completely free. That’s because, besides the story mode of GTA 5, this offer also includes access for GTA Online for free.

Nevertheless, as soon as the Epic Games Store goes live again, follow our guide to download GTA 5 from the Epic Games Store.
