How to Play Rules of Survival on PC Complete Guide (Working)

Updated on by PlayRoider

Rules of Survival on PCRules of Survival is the biggest battle royale game to hit the Google Play Store by Netease Games. Along with Knives Out and Survivor Royale, Rules of Survival is a free Android and iOS game that places 120 players on a gigantic island map where only a single player (or team) can survive and win. This is 20 more players than PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a popular PC game by PUBG Corporation.

Rules of Survival also has a PC login version with a separate guide for that.

Sadly, some Android devices and emulators were unsupported due to outdated hardware or software. However, some recent updates on two Android emulators for PC, Nox App Player and MEmu 3.6.7, has fixed the “Rules of Survival currently doesn’t support emulators” error message.

Bluestacks also has been updated to support the game and includes its own guide for playing RoS with Bluestacks’ Battle Royale XPack mode.

You can now also play Survivor Royale and Knives Out on PC too if you want to try out all three battle royale apps by Netease.

The following is a complete guide on how to download and play Rules of Survival on PC for the best mobile experience on the big screen with MEmu and Nox Android emulators.

How to Install and Play Rules of Survival on PC Guide

Step 1:

To begin you’ll need to download and install the Nox App Player from Bignox.

Download NoxPlayer


You can install the MEmu Android emulator which also works:

In my experience, Nox seems to run slightly better, but this depends on emulator and computer hardware settings.

Very important: If you choose MEmu then you will need to run it in Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

Step 2:

Sign into the Google Play Store and search for Rules of Survival, then click Install.

Step 3:

Launch the Android app. After it loads and downloads some resource files, it should take you to the main screen.

Rules of Survival on PC Optimization Tips

To ensure the game runs smoothly, you may need to adjust a few in-game settings. On the lobby screen, click on the gear icon in the bottom-right corner.

Go to the Operations tab. Make sure Scope Settings at Sniper Rifle is set to Traditional, and Vehicle Control to Comfort Mode.

Go to the Advance Settings tab. Switch to Classic Mode so you have a fixed joystick and fire button.

Now it’s time to map keyboard and mouse controls. Assigning keys in both Nox and MEmu is pretty simple. The short video above shows how to do this with Nox App Player, which is similar to MEmu’s keyboard controls as well. Here’s a screenshot of one PC controls setup with Nox.

    i installed it from google play using latest version of nox..

    doesn’t work.. it says emulators are not supported..

    some say december patch broke this(?)

    • I just tested this on Nox version and it’s still working fine for me. Try the following method:

      1. Uninstall Nox App Player.
      2. Download the latest version of Nox ( or later) from the official website.
      3. Install Nox.
      4. Allocate at least 2 CPU cores and 2GB RAM to it. Set your resolution screen to 1280×720 or higher.
      5. Download Rules of Survival.

      If it still doesn’t work, then try MEmu instead.

  2. MEmu user

    mine used to work but today it stopped working

    • Yes, it appears MEmu is not compatible to run Rules of Survival since the new update.

      I tested Nox App Player and it’s still working, so you can try that emulator instead.

      You can also play the PC version for Rules of Survival too.

      • MEmu user

        Yes it works on Nox
        Thank you very much 🙂

    Your friends playing PC version can’t connect to others using phone version. Just imagine how convenient playing and aiming in PC version plus big screen vs phone gaming. So, I think that’s why devs separated the server for those 2.
