How to Play Ragnarok Origin
Ragnarok Origin is now officially available on:
- PC (Windows)
- Android devices
- iOS devices
Even though Mac OS is not officially supported, there are ways to enjoy this game on your Macbook as well. We bring you step-by-step instructions for each method.
How to Play Ragnarok Origin on PC
You can get Ragnarok Origin for your PC by downloading the installation file from the game’s official website. Pay attention to the system requirements before you download —you can see the details in the table below:
|Minimum Requirements||Recommended Requirements|
|OS: Microsoft Windows 7 or above||OS: Microsoft Windows 10|
|Processor: Intel/AMD||Processor: Multi-core Intel or AMD microprocessor with single-threaded PassMark score of more than 1000|

However, if you want to experience Ragnarok Origin on PC the way mobile gamers do, you should download and install free mobile game emulator software (for example, BlueStacks). Once the emulator is up and running, you can search for Ragnarok Origin using the program’s search bar, install it, and start playing.
To install BlueStacks, make sure your computer meets the following requirements:
- Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 and above
- Processor: Intel/AMD
- RAM: minimum 4 GB
- HDD: 5 GB of free disk space
How to Play Ragnarok Origin on Mac
While there’s no official release of Ragnarok Origin for macOS computers, you can still play the game using a mobile game emulator—just like for PC. BlueStacks supports Apple devices as well, but make sure to click on the download link for Mac computers.
At the moment, you can only use BlueStacks 4 on macOS devices. Once you download the installation file, install the program like any other—just make sure to grant the necessary permissions for installing software outside of the App Store in the Security & Privacy settings.
How to Play Ragnarok Origin on Android
To play Ragnarok Origin on your Android phone, you will just need to head to the Google Play game page and hit the Install button. All newer Android phone models should be able to support Ragnarok Origin, but you will need a device that runs Android 6.0 and up.
How to Play Ragnarok Origin on iOS Devices
You can also get Ragnarok Origin from the official App Store for your iPhone or iPad. Make sure that your devices are running iOS 11.0 or later to avoid any issues with the game and that you have enough free storage—the game requires 3.6 GB.
How to Play Ragnarok Origin if It’s Not Available in Your Country
Ragnarok Origin is still not available for mobile devices all around the world. If Google Play or the App Store for your region doesn’t allow you to install the game, you can still access it on PC by downloading the game’s APK file.
If you have BlueStacks already installed on your computer, just open the downloaded file and it will boot up like any other emulated game regardless of regional restrictions.
