Epic Games Store's freebie for this week has managed to clog up their servers in record time, and many users are still being routed all across the globe.

Yesterday's rumours indeed turned out to be true and Grand Theft Auto V is the game of the week, but it looks like Epic underestimated just how many people will pounce at the chance to snag Rockstar's masterpiece.

Depending on where you are, you may have more luck, but many Epic Games Store users were met with messages on different languages. 

No need to be a  language expert though - each message has the 500 number, and it clearly points to connection troubles. In fact, it's almost like a game where you click "Return to Store" and see where you end up next.

We've no doubt Epic Games will be fixing it soon and they'll likely have plenty of takeaways from what appears to be everyone in the planet logging on, but until then, it's best to stay patient. 

We suppose the main thing that matters is that Grand Theft Auto V will be free this week on the Epic Games Store and anyone who's ever laid their eyes on it will tell you - it's definitely a game worth playing. 

In spite of being an old man among games, GTA V maintains a thriving community and Rockstar keep topping it up with fresh content.

Rumours are floating around that Epic Games Store's next freebie, which is also displayed as locked in Epic's vault, will be the Witcher, a legendary RPG by CD Projekt Red, but we can't testify as to the rumours' credibility. Oh and have fun in GTA.
