    It appeared in my library straight away, no need to download or anything :)

    It puts you through the regular purchase process (just with a cost of £0), following that it is in the library immediately.
    The option to install it is in the library below the cover art.
    And don't be alarmed if you get an email with a receipt from Epic much later, it is normal for those to take anything up to two days to arrive.

    Aye, got the receipt - no worries about that.

    TBH I think this has just shown that I wasn't observant enough.

    All's good ta.

    I blame lockdown. Except I got the free game before lockdown. :worried::happy:

    Well not sure what happened last time but Epic just added GTAV to my library with no downloading straight away just fine (not sure what I did last time).

    Didn't even ask me for 2FA before adding it to my library.

    Yeah so i've just managed to confuse myself over nothing. Not the last time.

    All good.

    Not my type of game, but hats off to Epic for the free games.

    Same.

    Finding a £10 coupon in my account was a nice surprise too.

    Keep in mind with the Epic sale you not only get a free coupon with each buy, but you can use it separately on DLC, season passes and it only has to be £13.99 to qualify (not 14.99, which is dollars).

    So I was up to Assassin's Creed Unity (which I bought before it went free anyway), Epic gave Syndicate away free, and now I just got Origins + DLC for £8.74 (the base game is too cheap, but you can get deluxe edition for £4.74 or everything for £8.74), then Odyssey for £6.74, then the season pass for £6.99.

    (Plus these link with Uplay, so if Epic store was to spectacularly die later, I know I'll still have them.)

    You only see the library in the epic launcher, not on logged in to their website, right?

    I've only ever looked via their launcher TBH. I don't know if the library would show their too.

    I think their is a settings check box to hide your library (?) iirc, there may be one on the website too?

    I haven't found anything on their website. Why would you want to look at it that way, though?

    I bought *cough* it through the website, so I expected to see it there.
