Hello guys, are you looking for the best way to play Clash Royale PC even when your computer is obsolete? Don’t worry! I’m here to help you out!
Because I have been received a lot of requests about this lately, today, I am going to show you how to play Clash Royale on Windows PC with Bluestacks, the best Android emulator in a few years now!
Now a lot of players would ask me why I recommend using Bluestacks. Why not Genymotion, Memu or any other popular Android emulator?
Maybe you don’t know, Bluestacks is one of the very first Android emulators. The public alpha version of Bluestacks was released in 2011. Throughout the years, a bunch of Bluestacks versions were implemented, along with so many improvements. This is definitely the best emulator that you could find at the moment. Also, we all can easily see how popular this software is!
I strongly recommend using Bluestacks Emulator to play Clash Royale PC because of:
Perfect multi simultaneous instances.
Multi-touch supporting keyboard, mouse and mouse-pad.
Perfect CPU/RAM thresholds make this program runs more effectively than other ones.
Custom resolutions, RAM, CPU Cores… for the emulator.
Built-in Stream Feature (connected with Facebook and Twitch).
I recommend this software on CRA because it is much better than other ones. I will take this down and write a new post once I have found any better software to play Clash Royale for PC.
How to play Clash Royale PC with Bluestacks Emulator
Step 1: Download Bluestacks for your Windows PC. Currently you can use it on most Window versions: Windows XP SP3, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10. Just make sure your PC matches the minimum system requirements below!
Step 2: Okay, after downloading, let’s start installing the emulator! Simply press at the Next button to install it. Currently Bluestacks supports up to 40 Languages. You can easily change the Language later after installing it.
Because the file you downloaded above is the standalone installer so you don’t need to download anything else. When the installing progress completes you should see this window, click at “Sign In with Google”. If you don’t have any Google account yes, it’s recommended toregister a new one at here.
Step 3: You should see this Window immediately right after Signing in with your Google account. Like using any Android device, you need to enter using some necessary information first before using it. At here, we just need to choose the Language and enter our Google account again!
Then, the program will bring us to the Homescreen. It should be like this:
There are a lot of options locating at the top and left sidebars, which can be used to shake the screen, take screenshot, set (fake) location, install apk files, copy files from Windows, change app resolution, modify CPU and Ram, etc. Most of these options are only available in the Pro Version of other Android Emulators
Simply tap on the Play Store icon on the homescreen (the white arrow above), search for Clash Royale or any other Android application you want to install, then press Install.
After downloading, you can press on the Open button and start playing Clash Royale on PC!
Everything is working very well, as you can see in the screenshot below, I can easily connect my Google ID with the game, there isn’t any problem at all!
Everything is working very well as wondered! Below are two screenshots I took while playing a Challenge! He was so good. He even BMed me :(.
It is taking just 383.6MB of RAM while I am playing Clash Royale PC, sounds great, right?
How to use your keyboard to pick cards during Clash Royale PC battles
Okay this is one of the most asked question and I would like to create a special section for it, instead of putting it into the FAQ section below.
Do you want to use your keyboard to pick your cards quickly during the battle, instead of using your mouse? By doing this, you can launch your combos and react everything in game quickly. This is much faster than using mouse to drag-and-drop cards.
By default, Bluestacks has already supported Clash Royale on PC. You don’t need to do anything, not like while using other emulators, you have to use the Keymapper by yourself and set each point on the screen to the respective button.
As you can see, when you launch Clash Royale on PC the first time, you should see this:
As stated, you can easily use 4 buttons on your keyboard, which are Z, X, C and V to choose the respective card in your hand while playing.
If somehow this window doesn’t show up, you can easily open the Keymapper tool at the top right of the Bluestacks window.
Some players like using 1234 instead of ZXCV. You can easily do this by using the Keymapper.
Frequently Asked Questions
My PC has just 1GB of RAM, can I use Bluestacks?
Yes of course, it should run smoothly on your PC! If somehow you get lag while playing, close all other programs first.
How to change the resolution of the emulator?
At Bluestacks window, click at the wheel icon locating at the top right, then choose Preferences.
Choose your desired screen resolution then click Close:
At the moment, these resolutions are supported: 1280 x 720, 1366 x 768, 1380 x 774, 1600 x 900, 1920 x 1080, 1982 x 1115 and 2560 x 1440.
If you don’t have a lot RAM and your CPU/GPU is not really strong, I recommend using the emulator with 1380×774 resolution while playing Clash Royale on PC.
How can I increase RAM and CPU of the emulator?
Still at the Preferences window, go to the System tab and do your own settings.
I am using an iOS device, How can I play Clash Royale PC running on Android?
It is very easy to move your game progress to Android (Bluestacks is technically an Android device). In order to play your game progress on Android, you should read this tutorial. After following the tutorial, you will be able to play the game on both iOS and Android devices.
Somehow, I can’t find or install this game via Google Play…
I haven’t faced this problem yet since the game was released but If you do, feel free to download the Clash Royale APK file instead.
