Download and play RAID: Shadow Legends on Computer
The first step to playing RAID: Shadow Legends on the desktop is to download Bluestacks.
RAID: Shadow Legends was originally only available to download and play on mobile devices, but now it can be played on desktop with the use of emulators, which is the preferred way by top players.
To start downloading RAID: Shadow Legends on PC, go to the RAID: Shadow Legends download page – this one specifically is made for RAID: Shadow Legends so that you can easily install the game after you’ve installed Bluestacks.
Bluestacks is an emulator where you can play any android game on your desktop, including RAID: Shadow Legends, of course.
Alternatively, you can use the ‘Play RAID: Shadow Legends on PC’ button below to get to the download page.
We recommend using Bluestacks, as it gives you the performance of a desktop game while enabling you to use smart functions, like macros that allow you to auto-farm without using multi-battle attempts.
On the RAID: Shadow Legends download page, click the ‘Play RAID: Shadow Legends on PC’ button to download the Bluestacks installer.
Once you’ve downloaded the installer, find it in your downloads folder or directly in your browser and run it.
Bluestacks will now start installing, which will take a couple of minutes depending on your internet speed.
Upon finishing the installation, you will be taken to the BlueStacks homepage.
On the homepage of BlueStacks, most of you will see a RAID: Shadow Legends banner.
Press ‘Install game’ on the RAID: Shadow Legends banner, which takes you to the game’s page on Google Play.
If you haven’t signed in to a Google account yet, you will be asked to do so at this point before being taken to Google Play.
For those who don’t see the banner on the BlueStacks homepage, just search for the game in the search bar and click it. You will then be taken to RAID: Shadow Legends’ page on Google Play.
Now that you’re on the RAID: Shadow Legends page on Google Play press the green ‘Install’ button in the top right corner.
The game will start installing, which, again, will take a couple of minutes depending on your internet speed.
When RAID: Shadow Legends has been installed, you can start the game by pressing the ‘Open’ or ‘Play’ button on the Google Play page.
Alternatively, you can go back to the BlueStacks homepage and click the game icon.
On the homepage, you’ll find all the games you’ve installed on BlueStacks, and this is where you’ll open RAID: Shadow Legends the next time you open BlueStacks.
To start the game from the homepage, just click the RAID: Shadow Legends icon.
That’s it! You are now playing RAID: Shadow Legends on your PC!
You now have access to better performance, a wider display, and more benefits that you can read more about down below.
How to use your RAID: Shadow Legends account on the PC
Chances are that you want to play RAID: Shadow Legends on PC with the account you’ve built on your mobile or tablet.
Luckily, that can easily be achieved through the settings menu inside the game.
To play with your current progress on the PC version of the game, link your progress to a Plarium ID if you haven’t done so already.
Here is a quick rundown on how to link your RAID: Shadow Legends progress to a Plarium ID.
Head into the Profile Settings page by pressing the player icon in the top left corner.
On the right side of the screen, press the Connect to Plarium ID button and press Create ID.
Sign up with an email, and your account and progress are now saved.
Now, open up the RAID: Shadow Legends on Bluestacks and go to settings in the top-left corner.
Then, log in to the account with your RAID: Shadow Legends progress on it, and there you go, you are now playing with your current progress on the PC.
Benefits of playing RAID: Shadow Legends on PC
By playing RAID: Shadow Legends on your PC, you’ll be enjoying a number of benefits.
First and foremost, you’ll be playing on a wider display, which improves the gameplay experience for many players.
Furthermore, many players enjoy the familiar setting they’re used to on their PC setup, where they can do other things while playing the game, including chatting with friends, listening to music, and watching videos.
However, the biggest advantage of playing RAID: Shadow Legends on Bluestacks, is that you can set up a macro that automatically clicks in a specific order for you.
With a macro, you can set up auto-battling, which means that you can essentially do multi-battle without using the in-game multi-battle feature.
Bluestacks also allows you to play multiple instance at once, which means that you can farm multiple accounts at the same time while being AFK.
Most emulators like BlueStacks are built for performance, which means they are better optimized for playing mobile games when paired with your computer hardware than your phone or tablet itself.
If you are experiencing lag when playing RAID: Shadow Legends on your PC, it’s most likely not that your computer can’t run the game, but because you haven’t enabled virtualization.
You can learn how to enable virtualization for BlueStacks in the following video from our YouTube channel.
Lastly, playing on your computer allows you to play the game in situations where you’d not normally be able to mobile games, as you can just close the tab and let the game run in the background while doing other work on the computer.
