Put down your phone, turn off that laggy emulator, and get ready to experience Raid like you’ve never seen it before.
Raid: Shadow Legends is available now on PC and Mac exclusively on Plarium Play. Raid on PC has the same great core gameplay as the Android and iOS versions, but with a ton of extra graphic goodies and control customizations for ease of play.
In this article, we’ll have a quick look at what’s new, what’s the same, and unpack Plarium Play.
In terms of gameplay? It’s the same game. With a live, competitive game like Raid, it has to be. In terms of convenience and graphics, a whole lot has been changed.
The Raid team has added HD textures to all environments and character art, along with new animations, parallax occlusion effects, terrain animations, motion blurring, and a much higher frame rate.
You’ll also see changes in depth-of-field, improved lighting and self-shading during battles, and more. The second you fire up the game, the difference is instantly noticeable.
Raid: Shadow Legends has also been updated for PC play in a number of small but important ways.
It has fully-customizable graphics settings, so you can control what resources the game is using, and which effects you want switched on or off.
It also has some quality of life changes. The game supports a windowed mode with scalable windows, and has added changes to the controls to make it easier to play using a keyboard and mouse (or touchpad).
You also have the option to link custom hotkeys for repetitive actions, so you can spend less time clicking, and more time playing.
Is it cross-platform?
Yes! Players registering their account with their Plarium ID will have have their game progress, purchases, and account settings automatically synced between PC and mobile versions of the game.
Play on Plarium Play when you’re at home or at the office, then switch to mobile when you’re on the go. Enjoy a seamless experience anywhere you play Raid.
