Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is the latest game made free on Epic Games Store until May 28. This is following the release of Grand Theft Auto V on the Epic Games Store which was also free until May 21. The deal was so popular, it crashed Epic Games' servers and players had to wait until the following day to load back in, and get their free copy of GTA V.
So far, Epic Games hasn't announced server issues which isn't a surprise as Civilization VI is not as popular as GTA V, and Epic Games probably prepared this time around for the onslaught of players looking to download the free game.
