How To Setup Fate/Grand Order On PC and Android
I’ve recently picked up a Mobile MMO called Fate/Grand Order which is based on the highly popular Fate franchise by Type Moon. Just earlier this year they finished airing an anime of the original material called Fate/Unlimited Blade Works.
In Fate/Grand Order, you play a mage who is sent through various times to prevent anomalies from occurring. To help you on this quest you have access to summoning Heroic Spirits which are heroes from throughout history such as King Arthur, Alexander The Great and Jeanne Of Arc.
Unfortunately for those of us who are from the west, the game is currently only translated in Japanese— but fortunately for you I’ll be here to guide you. Even as a non-Japanese speaker, you’ll be able to try out this awesome free to play Mobile MMORPG which sports a fun JRPG inspired battle system that is full of strategy. Those looking to learn how to play Fate/Grand Order can read on.
In this guide I’ll be showing you how to pick up the game on PC and Android.
- You’ll need an emulator. (If you're on desktop. If you're using Android skip to step 2)
First you’ll want to pick up an Android emulator since the game is on mobile. With this you’ll be able to play any other mobile games you’d like. For Fate/Grand Order I personally use Bluestacks but you can use whatever is right for you.
You can download Bluestacks here.
After you’re all installed (which took incredibly long for me) move on to step 2.
- Download QooApp.
You can pick up QooApp here by clicking on the QooApp Icon. QooApp is a Japanese game hub that contains all sorts of goodies, for our purposes we’re interested in obtaining Fate/Grand Order from here.
If you're using an Android phone just go ahead and navigate to the QooApp address. You won't be able to find QooApp in the app store, you'll need to navigate to the address below:
- Install QooApp apk file into your emulator.
If you are using Bluestacks, drag and drop it into the emulator. Wait until complete. I had a random problem with mine at this phase— I instead searched for the Bluestacks launcher in my browser and dragged the QooApp apk file onto it.
- Launch QooApp within the emulator and search for “Fate/Grand” then pick Fate/Grand Order.
You can find the search option here:
There should only be one option at this stage that looks like this:
- Sign in using either Google Play or Facebook.
I used Google Play to have a different account, mostly so I could make in-game purchases easier through Google Wallet. However, several people have said that Facebook is easier since you don’t have to make an account if you already have one.
- Click download then launch through emulator home page.
After this step you're done! The game will prompt you through tutorial and character creation and you'll be ready to summon a servant for yourself!
