After pulling the trigger earlier than expected on Grand Theft Auto V going free over on the Epic Game Store, gamers could not wait to grab the free game. However, things went south yesterday afternoon when Epic Games listed GTA V for free. As a result, both the Epic Games Store and Fortnite servers crashed due to high traffic volumes on the services.

While everything is now up and running and you can easily go and add GTA V to your account, it was a rough couple of hours. Users reported “error 500” issues while trying to access the store. In addition, Fortnite was experiencing errors on PC, Mac, iOS and Android.

It took a good couple of hours before Epic Games managed to get things under control. Thankfully, it is all resolved now.

Epic is letting users claim the Premium Edition of Grand Theft Auto V which includes both the single-player and GTA Online. The package also includes an additional $1,000,000 cash bonus for GTA Online.

Epic will be giving another game away next week. We don’t know what it is but we will share information if we spot anything.
