Download and play RAID: Shadow Legends on Computer
An emulator is software that emulates a mobile device, which means you can play mobile games on that emulator.
We recommend using BlueStacks, as it’s the emulator we’ve found to have the best performance and features.
You can, however, use other emulators to play RAID: Shadow Legends on PC as well.
The first step of playing RAID: Shadow Legends on PC is to go to the official RAID: Shadow Legends download page on Bluestacks.
Alternatively, you can use the ‘Play RAID: Shadow Legends on PC’ button below to get to the download page.
On the RAID: Shadow Legends download page, click the ‘Play on BlueStacks 4’ 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.
After running the Bluestacks installer, press ‘Install now’ on the Bluestacks installer window.
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.
Here, it will ask you to sign in to a Google account – you can do that now, or you can wait till later, but you can’t install any games before you log in to a Google account.
On the homepage of BlueStacks, most of you will see a big RAID: Shadow Legends banner under Featured game.
Press ‘Install game’ on the RAID: Shadow Legends banner, which takes you to the RAID: Shadow Legends 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 RAID: Shadow Legends banner on the BlueStacks homepage, just type in RAID: Shadow Legends in the search bar in the top-right corner of the BlueStacks homepage, and then click the RAID: Shadow Legends icon.
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’ button on the Google Play page.
Alternatively, you can close the Google Play tab and go back to the BlueStacks homepage and go to the ‘My Games’ tab at the top.
Under My Games, 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 RAID: Shadow Legends from the My Games tab, 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.

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.
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.
BlueStacks also comes with special features that allow you to do setups that aren’t possible with just one mobile device.
With BlueStack’s multi-instance feature, you can play multiple accounts at the same time, just like you had several mobile devices.
But, playing multiple accounts on BlueStacks only requires one device – your computer.
You can take your farming and progress to whole new heights with this feature.
For players who wish to record their gameplay, using an emulator like BlueStacks makes this a whole lot easier.
When you play a mobile game on your PC with an emulator, you can just record it like any other game with software like OBS or Shadowplay, and you can stream like any other game as well.
Lastly, playing on your computer allows you to play mobile games in situations where you’d not normally be able to, as you can just close the tab and let the game run in the background while doing other work on the computer.
What is BlueStacks
BlueStacks is an emulator, which is software that emulates a mobile device, allowing you to do activities normally done on mobile devices on your computer.
This means that you essentially have a phone you can control on your computer when using BlueStacks, except for you can’t call from it with cell service.
You can, however, do everything else, including downloading and playing any mobile app and game.
BlueStacks is an Android emulator, which means the software emulates an Android mobile device.
Because of this, you have access to the same features as an Android device, and you can thereby download apps through the Google Play store, not the IOS App Store.
On BlueStacks, you can, however, also download apps and mobile games directly with APK files that you’ve downloaded from third-party websites or app stores.
