GTA V Free on Epic Store, do you think Online will suffer?

Does anyone know if the Criminal Enterprise Starter pack included with the Epic Store version can be transferred to a Steam copy of the game? 

 

I just started Online on my Steam edition not too long ago, but don't really want to have to reinstall the whole game and restart my progress just so I can get some of the freebies included with the Epic version.

The whole point of Epic wasting trucks of money in giveaways is to make people migrate to their platform. So, no.

Rats, makes sense. I was only curious if someone found a way to do it.

Ain't getting that free copy. Don't want any issues with my 5000+hrs steam account. No need for issues there...

 

The playerbase and sharkcard sales will increase again. I suspect more hackers, but then again, I hardly ever play with other players in my lobby anymore... This is a new lease of life for the game probably.

It'll continue a lil longer now wrt updates and stuff... So that's a good thing... An announcement on GTA6 would be nice though. Would like to know how much longer this game will get new updates and when its successor will arrive.... On a sidenote it's been awfully quiet on 'Everywhere' too... The website and then it went silent...

Very true, and no better way than to dive right in too. Plus there'll be some surprises from players that have played before and know the game/jobs well. Makes for a bit of fun going up against unknown abilities hidden behind their low ranks.

That's definitely me. Only started my online account recently because my friend picked up the game for PC finally, I've been kicking butt in races against high levels as a level 5 character.

Before I run the risk of it, can someone in a pc GTA session put a virus on my computer? 

 

I'm only asking because even though I have no intention of touching online on pc, it needs an internet connection to just play single player and I remember reading about how people could still screw with you in single player.

Interesting question. Maybe if that happened we could sue Rockstar to give us dedicated servers. So far there have only been reports of hackers crashing the game for other players.

Maybe if you have been in a public session with a hacker and then go to play SP, or if they saved your Rockstar ID from a previous session. Worst I got while playing alone was text messages on the phone sent in my own name. But I think it was in an invite-only session, not story mode. I haven't really touched story mode after finishing it and going online.

If you never touch online at all with your account, you should be safe.

I mostly keep to myself in Online, try not to piss off any potential hackers, and the only help I give is joining heists or teaching people how to lone wolf their businesses.

Well one thing did suffer. R*'s matchmaking.

Serverstatus is limited for PC only.

rockstar logic: lets make gta free so that a bunch of people will start playing online and mess with the servers that were sooo good before

I don't know about suffering but I know I could not play this morning after work because the servers were down.  I don't ask or expect anything for buying this game 4 times now(ps3, pc steam, ps4, and pc rsc), but at least let me play the game, that's all I'd ever ask.  Thank you again Rockstar for making the paying consumer feel the way you make us feel, especially on pc.  I remember the elderly lady with the walker pulling me out of my Clover because I rear-ended her but now again I have to see how uncool you have truly become.  As a faithful GTA'er, I'd have gladly dove into the storyline but you've done squat for that for 7 years now.  What a shame when the moneymaker isn't running on most cylinders.  It make us once again open our eyes, if only for a brief moment.

There's definitely a huge increase of modders in the game, and the servers connections are kinda bad.

Well one thing's for sure. The new players will suffer a lot of forced spam phone calls to buy properties they won't have the money for.

Ok, so I have finally been able to get Online after half a day of service being unavailable. Heisting on call has become a lot worse since the game got free. Joining goes faster but all the heists are flooded with low levels who either fail to ready up, keep dying or leave half way. At least freemode sessions are full, good for high demand bonus.

If you have a social account for your Xbox One can you use the same user and pw for the freebie pc version?

If you mean your RSC ID then  yes it is the same. It will still be a new, rank 1 character though.

They already start with a bunker and enough money to stop Bryony calls.

 

Edit: Are yours Rockstar Launchers working?

What a great way to introduce new players to your game. They spend hours downloading sh*t, then the servers immediately start working like a charm oh wait that didn't happen.

Than they get the phone call spam to buy every business, office, office garage, terrorbye, bunker, nightclub, facility, arena, and arcade as a level 1. I'm sure in the first hour they will be able to purchase all of them to make the calls stop. :D
