Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI
Civilization VI offers new ways to interact with your world, expand your empire across the map, advance your culture, and compete against history’s greatest leaders to build a civilization that will stand the test of time.

EXPANSIVE EMPIRES

See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.
ACTIVE RESEARCH
Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.
DYNAMIC DIPLOMACY
Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.
COMBINED ARMS
Expanding on the “one unit per tile” design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.
ENHANCED MULTIPLAYER
In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session.
A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS
Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.




UPDATE: This now deleted Tweet from The Epic Games Store seems to all but confirm that today's offer will in fact be Grand Theft Auto V

[Announcement tweet] - now deleted


When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.



It looks like the rumours for tomorrow's today's free game from The Epic Games Store are getting stronger and stronger

Originally whispered on the Reddit forums along with Watch_Dogs 2, Killing Floor 2 and A Plague Tale: Innocence, it's now seems, as previously mentioned on the forums, that the game is in fact Grand Theft Auto V, or at least according to Game Pressure.

Epic Games Store regularly serves full versions of games for free. However, their next promotion will top it off. As we've learned from an anonymous, but very well-informed source, we will be able to download Grand Theft Auto V for free on the EGS from tomorrow (May 14) through May 21.

The free edition of GTA V will release as Premium Edition. In addition to the game itself and access to Grand Theft Auto Online, it will also offer a lot of additional content. As usual, adding the game to the library during the promotion makes the game remain yours forever.

The game is expected to be available from 4pm tomorrow UK time. I'll update the link once available and move across.

Update 2

I hope EG keeps this going. This is amazing. I don’t have to purchase GTA V for the third time.
Finally, my biting point! The GTA series isn't really my thing, but I like to explore the open worlds.

What a great game if true. Even tho I own it other places will still grab it
Hope it's real aha. That would be amazing!
My son's been after that for ages. Touch wood.
Wow, pretty awesome if true!
I really really really can't see this being true.

Why not? Everybody and their gran already owns it on one system already.
This would be some giveaway if true.

Also, GTA:O is a HUGE moneymaker so more people getting in is good for them - keys have gone as cheap as 9 quid on here so it's not 100% far fetched but I'm not gonna hold my breath lol
The 2nd most best selling game of all time with over 120 million sales. hmmm. Granted not as much on PC. Amazing if it is true, although I already have it on Steam. Still haven't completed it and online takes forever to load.

I do see the marketing angle though after looking at the figures, "we need more people on PC to purchase Microtransactions".
Edited by: "Frankie77" 13th May
That is amazing if true, so many great games from Epic handed out for free. I have a bunch of games for free from Steam over the past few years but nothing like this level of free goodness, so much that I’ve lost count, must be like 50+ easily.
This is an amazing deal and for maximum exposure should be moved to the deals section. Love this site, but don't know why editors insist on gaming freebies being moved to discussions? Someone's already posted it as a deal (after this) obviously thinking the same.
Thank you for the post OP
Took nearly 6hrs to download a 77GB game via them yesterday. 2.5MB/sec is slow.....


I've only ever played GTA 1 and 2. Like running people over in the tank.....

It's about confirmation. There's no point it sitting in deals racking up heat when it's simply not true. It was based on rumours at the time I put this together with a few insights from industry insiders. It's simply to avoid mis-leading. I did say above that it would be moved across once confirmed

The ‘rumor’ in this tweet by the store offering the deal which I posted is so strong that it looks remarkably like a genuine advertisement, on which to base a deal.

I get it, you don't want to get people's hopes up only for Epic to reveal they're giving away Duke Nukem Forever .

It's just I was alerted through the app as a notification, dismissed it, then went looking for it in deals and thought "where is it?!".

Duke Nukem Forever isn't that bad a freebie

I understand the frustration, and I understand the need for it being in freebies, it's just finding that happy medium until it can be actioned and/or confirmed. Imagine the uproar if I'd have put an unconfirmed rumour into deals? I'd have been hung out to dry

Haha true that - all the built up speculation about the PS plus games for this month and then for it to be farming simulator comes to mind

It was my mistake, I read it early this morning and thought it was an early guaranteed free game and in my haste/excitement to check it out and download it, I failed to read your post properly.

I wrongly thought the admin guys just wanted to kick it into the long grass. Just sour grapes on my part from having one of my free deals for Asphalt 9 deleted I guess.
@BuzzDuraband any insiders you would reccomend following on twitter? Think its pertinant to start clueing up on all these new leaks and rumours.

Whoops just made a post about this, hadn't seen this one.

It's live at 4pm!
So now its official ?
So Epic would put it out for free but Rockstar won't for there launcher That doesn't seem right?
One of the rare people who never played it and on my birthday too
Brilliant, EGS have chucked out some great games in the past

Despite owning it on XB1, I'll play it again on PC easily

All but now we've seen the announcement tweet from Epic. There isn't a gaming outlet on the planet not talking about it, plus - it saves the mods from the influx of duplicates.

I believe it was on the Epic Games Store sub-reddit as early as Monday.
Oh nuts, been avoiding putting another store on my PC so missed out on all the previous free games, thinking they'd be ones off, now going to have to get this for GTA V. Really wished I had added them now, particulularly World War Z
I've been debating buying this for a few weeks now but I didn't want to pay a tenner for it. I might consider it for free though, hah.

All of the other free games sites might as well just give up if they can give this away for free.
