Download and install BlueStacks

As I told you, Clash of Clans is not a game available for computer. To be able to use it on your computer you must therefore resort to the use of an Android emulator , such as  BlueStacks . Haven’t you ever heard of it? No problem, I’ll “enlighten” you right away. It is a free program for Windows and macOS that allows you to run most of the apps and games available for Android directly on your computer.

BlueStacks is one of the most famous and appreciated Android emulators and is considered by most as a program particularly optimized for gaming. Also, as mentioned, it is free, although it features several advertisements that come in the form of recommendations for downloading sponsored applications and games. If you want to remove them you have to subscribe: the price is 4 $ / month or 40 $ / year.

That said, if your intent is to download Clash of Clans on PC , the first step is to download and install the emulator on your Windows computer or Mac in your possession.

To do this, first connect to the official web page of the  emulator, then press first on the Download BlueStacks  button  you see on the screen, and then on Download , then wait a few moments, so that the download of the executable file is started and completed.

When the download is complete, on Windows , open the file obtained ( .exe ) to start the installation of the program. Then first click Yes in the user account control window and finally click on  Install Now and then on Complete .  The procedure has been greatly simplified with the latest update of the emulator and, at the end of the installation, BlueStacks will start automatically.

To install BlueStacks on macOS , instead, download the file. dmg from the official website and start it, by double clicking. Now, click on the BlueStacks icon , to start its installer and, if prompted, click on the Open button , to consent to its opening.

Then press the Continue  and  Install items , enter the Mac administration password (i.e. the one you use to access it) and then click the Install Assistant button . Once this is done, in case you are prompted, click on the word Open system preferences .

In this case you have to act through the Mac settings panel: first press on  Allow  and then on the lock icon   which is located at the bottom left. Once this is done, finish the installation of  BlueStacks  on macOS, by first typing the   Mac password and then pressing on  Unlock .

Configure BlueStacks

Once installation is complete, as mentioned, the software will start automatically. Once the main window of the program is displayed, take patience another minute, as you have to associate  BlueStacks  to your Google account, by logging in, so that you can then download Clash of Clans  via the Play Store. Keep in mind that the configuration procedures I’m about to show you are the same for both Windows and macOS.

When the program is running, click on the Start button , in order to see the text fields on the screen where you can type the email address  and  password referring to your account. Once this is done, press the Next  and Accept buttons to allow BlueStacks to access your account. After logging in, click Start Using BlueStacks to finish setting up the emulator.

If, on the other hand, you do not have a Google account, before carrying out the steps I have just indicated, create one, following the instructions I gave you in my tutorial on  how to create a Google account .

Once you have done all the steps above, you can finally proceed with the actual installation of Clash of Clans . First click on the Google Play Store icon  attached to the main screen ( Home ).

Once the Android PlayStore is open , select the Apps and games tab  at the top and scroll until you find the game on the main screen, i.e. the one where all the games and apps in the PlayStore are visible. From the moment it is a flagship game, it will definitely be visible in one of the featured sections.

In case you find it difficult to locate it, you can search for it manually. To do this, all you have to do is type clash of clans , in the search field at the top, and press  Enter  on the keyboard. Next, click on the game tab shown as the search result and click on the green Install button .

Once the download and installation of Clash of Clans is completed (both occur automatically), press the Open button  visible on the screen, and wait for the title to start similarly to what happens on smartphones and tablets. Within a few moments you will be able to view the game screen and you can immediately start enjoying the game, using your computer’s monitor and keyboard. Beautiful, is not it?

Please note that, from now on, you will also be able to play Clash of Clans  on PC simply by double clicking on the game icon that has been added to the BlueStacks main screen ( Home ). A bit like what happens on real Android devices, when you download and install a new application.

Note : In order to play Clash of Clans on a computer it is essential that the latter is connected to the Internet and that the connection in use is actually active and functioning. Clash of Clans is, in fact, a game that, in order to work, requires an Internet connection: it is an essential prerogative both in the case in which the game is run on smartphones and tablets, and if it is run on a computer.
