If you get GTA 5 for free from the Epic Games Store, you can secure a few advantages in addition to the basic game. The Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack is already included in the game, and up to 1.5 million GTA dollars are given away for each player.
If you haven’t bought GTA 5 yet, you can currently download the game for free from the Epic Games Store: As we already reported, the title will be given away there until May 21 at 4:59 pm. The given version of GTA 5 ( buy now for € 49.95 ) is not just the base game or even a trimmed version, but the Premium Edition. This brings the players some advantages, and under certain circumstances, you can secure further extras.
Up to $ 2.5 million GTA starting bonus
In addition to GTA 5 and GTA Online, the Premium Edition also includes the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, which provides the player with a few extras and a starter bonus of one million GTA dollars. The package includes six properties, ten vehicles, three weapons, 30 outfits, and 60 tattoos, which are immediately available in the game. Only the money bonus does not appear immediately: From character creation, it takes seven to ten days before you can access the money.
If the first million isn’t enough for you, you may be able to secure another million: Subscribers to Twitch Prime who link their account to the Rockstar Games Social Club also get a million GTA dollars as well as some vehicle discounts and Access to Pixel-Pete’s arcade. Players will receive an additional 500,000 GTA dollars if they log into GTA Online in May. That alone is enough to get the money.
Also exciting: GTA 6: New leak gives an indication of the size of the game world
Overall, as a new player, you can receive up to 2.5 million GTA dollars and thus take advantage of more options from GTA Online without having to buy the in-game currency for real money and thus still having to pay something for GTA 5. However, gifts of money are not really rare in GTA Online: Rockstar is always giving away large amounts of money to keep people interested in the game.
