Tired of playing MLBB on a smartphone? Here’s how you can enjoy the MOBA title on a PC:

Can you play MLBB on PC?

The name of the game, MLBB, might have the word “mobile,” but the game can also be played on PC. Before 2023, the only way to play Mobile Legends on PC was through third-party emulators. Now, though, the game can be played easily through the Google Play Games Beta program.

This project was first launched in 2022 and is currently in beta with its availability restricted to 120 countries globally. As a part of this, Google offers integration to developers with the Android Studio so they can easily tweak their titles and deploy them on PC. It offers more than 100 games currently, with MLBB recently joining that list.

Playing Mobile Legends: Bang Bang on PC doesn’t give you an advantage, though. The game has been developed for mobile and its controls have been moulded for smartphones. MOONTON has adopted the controls really well on PC. You can click to move around instead of using a joystick. There are hotkeys for purchasing items, using abilities, and auto attacks.

The main problem, though, is aiming with the abilities. The default action is set to auto-aim, so if you are looking to ambush into a brush or dash in the opposite direction, casting the abilities might be tough. It remains to be seen how MOONTON addresses this issue in the future.
