How to install Rise of Kingdoms on PC (3 ways)

Rise of Kingdoms

The multiplayer mobile online real-time strategy game Rise of Kingdoms was released in 2018 and remains popular to this day. Currently, the game has a full client for the computer, allowing you to play it without emulators.

PC System Requirements

Official game website doesn’t provide exact system requirements, so here are approximate ones (based on player experiences):

  • OS: Windows 7 or higher / Mac OS
  • Processor: 2 Cores, 3.0 GHz (or better)
  • RAM: 4 Gb (or better)
  • Graphics Card: 512 Mb (or better)
  • HDD: 2 Gb

These requirements have some margin. In general, the game is not demanding, so you should be able to play Rise of Kingdoms even on a lower-end PC.

How to Play Rise of Kingdoms via BlueStacks

When you play with an emulator, the game treats you as a mobile device player. This means you’ll have additional ways to earn in-game currency by viewing ads for mobile apps, a reward system presents in most mobile online games.

You can install BlueStacks from the official website. In the emulator, you can find Rise of Kingdoms in the Google Play Store and install it just like on any Android device.

As of today, BlueStacks is one of the best and most convenient emulators. However, you’ll need a more powerful computer (at least 8 Gb RAM) because the Android OS itself also requires system resources.

How to Play Rise of Kingdoms via Google Play Games

Not long ago, Google released an official emulator, the review of which is already published on the website. You can play Rise of Kingdoms using it since the developers recently added the game to the list of available titles.

The advantage of this emulator is that Google manually adds games and provides pre-configured control settings. Google Play Games also offers smoother graphics and better performance in games (at least in my personal experience).

The main downside is that this emulator only supports a small portion of games from Google Play. Furthermore, it offers limited user settings, and it’s not compatible with BlueStacks (at the time of writing this post) as it requires system setting adjustments, although it applies them automatically, which is a plus for inexperienced PC users.
