The Epic Games Store kicked off a four-week sale on Thursday, offering discounts of up to 75% off dozens of PC games — and, of course, giving away Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5.

Epic’s “Mega Sale” has discounts on PC games like Control, Borderlands 3, Metro Exodus, Shenmue 3, and Anno 1800, all of which are 50% off during the sale. The full list of games and their various discounts is available at Epic’s website, but some of the more substantial discounts apply to older games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (70% off), Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (67% off), and Alan Wake (90% off).

Sweetening the deal is a $10 coupon that can be earned by signing into your Epic Games account. It can be used on eligible games or add-ons priced at $14.99 or above. And for any eligible purchase of $14.99 or more on the Epic Games Store, Epic will give buyers another $10 coupon for their next purchase. More details are available at Epic’s FAQ.

If you’re just here for the free games, you can grab GTA 5 now that Epic’s servers have stabilized. Additional free games will be released every Thursday through June 11.
