      Hi, good question. I’ve tried to answer that one myself. Unfortunately you need to install software locally for WoW to work. There is, strangely enough, no web only version of there, and that is what’s needed to play it on a Chromebook. So will have to partition for one I guess 🙂

          I don’t believe the chromebook even has the capability to handle a game that big, it’s not ment for running games, it’s meant for taking notes, writing papers and searching the web.

            no it does not i am very good with computer, and have a degree in programming, engineering in technology and robotics. it is almost in possible to get it on a chrome book be cause a chrome book is only access to the world wide web and the internet and it has no hard-drive on the device

      This is possible from what I’ve been reading. Although it’s quite a bit of work to setup. WoW will run in the Wine, an application that runs Window’s applications in Linux. Wine requires an x86 processor, so you would first need to boot an 867 processor version of Linux that runs an x86 emulator that boots an x86 Linux distribution (with X11). I’m asking the Linux guru’s if they think WoW will run fast enough to be playable before spending all the time needed to implement this. Check out the post I made at http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/miscellaneous/195796-worth-867-processor-x86-emu-running-wine-wow.html

    OK. I dont think this article is correct. Please tell me if I am wrong. This Link comes up when I choose a game FROM the Chrome Web Store. http://www.thehunter.com/site/character/

    This Link is a launcher to install the game I chose from the Web Store. Which I cannot do from a Chromebook. Am I correct or is there a way around it?

      Hi Mike, I’m afraid you’re right. At least in that ‘the hunter’ is made for the chrome browser, and not soly for the chrome OS. Are not at all for the Chromebook really.

      For reasons beyond me Google accepts this. Since many of the all’s are nothing but a link it is possible to have those links point to installers. A practice that bothers me personally, but for now is accepted.

        Hi I worked on the Web part of The Hunter website. Im pretty sure there was never any intention to target any specific browser. In fact parts of the game can be played within the browser – it is integral to playing the game. For example the site operates kind of like a virtual social networking site – you can add / friend NPC’s (Who give missions etc) or other players, post videos , share trophies and stories, of your latest conquest even customise your page!. All of these are valid gameplay components that can be done in the browser – perhaps when you are on the move or have a lunch break. The Hunter was developed when google NaCL and webGL was in its infancy and at that time it was not really a viable option for a game of this nature. So while its true that the download is a windows binary only. Its still useful to be able to have quick access to the web component of the game if only to play the virtual “social network” side to the game.

        No your wrong. The Chrome Web store WAS made for the Chrome Web Browser, but more for the Chromebook. Yes some things can’t be played on Chromebook, but Chrome Web Store was made for Chromebooks to have games, and a couple of idiots didn’t realize that and made something that a Chromebook couldn’t do.

          Sorry, but just think about what you just said… when did the Google Play store come out, and when did the ChromeOS and Chromebooks come out? Chrome and Chromium browsers were out years before the Play store, and the Play and Web store was out for years before ChromeOS and Chromebooks. There were browser based games you could just click on and install from your browser store for a LONG time before ChromeOS was even a discussion on forums. You either haven’t been using Chrome before your Chromebook, or you are forgetting just how long Google, Android, Chrome, and the Play / Web Stores store have been around.

      I actually have the answer to that! First you need to install chrubuntu on the chromebook to figure that out go to http://chromeos-cr48.blogspot.com/2012/04/chrubuntu-1204-now-with-double-bits.html After you do that and your on chrubuntu just go to minecraft.net install it and play!!

      Two ways. Get an app that lets you use Internet Explorer inside Chrome and play cheap remakes of Minecraft, or switch you Chromebook into developer mode, download Crouton, press Ctrl+Alt+T , type shell, type sudo ~/Downloads/crouton -t (you have a choice of which Ubuntu versions to use. I reccommend typing in unity). Then follow any prompts and at the end (it’ll take like an hour to get to the end, so do some stuff while you are waiting.), if it doesn’t load and brings up the command thing again, type in the command it tells you to use to run the version. After that, search, press Ctrl+Alt+back (the left arrow button at the top of the keyboard) and download the browser you want to search on your Ubuntu version. can be Chromium, Firefox or others, as long as it works with Linux. next, go to Minecraft.net and download the Linux version of Minecraft. After that, you have to get the Ubuntu Software center (I think you use the UX terminal in your Ubuntu version (You can get to it the same way you switched back to the chrome OS (Ctrl+Alt+back))) to run the command “sudo apt-get -i software-center” (which could also be used to get the browser you want) and use that to get “OpenJDK Java 6 runtime” and then you go to the minecraft.jar file you got, left click on it (double finger tap), click permissions, check the box next to “allow executing of this file as program” and close the permission menu, left click the file again, and click “Open with OpenJDK Java 6 runtime”. there you go. two ways: one to play cheap Minecraft remakes, one to root your Chomebook and play the real minecraft!

      Hi Javier,
      You can pretty much. take it as a rule that you cannot play PC based games on a Chromebook. As long as the game you’d like to play requires you to locally install something, either the entire game or parts of , then chances are that it won’t work on the Chromebook.

      But, you can remotely work on a PC using your Chromebook. So depending on your network speeds I guess you could play those games… But I’m not sure so anybody here to check this claim?

        remote conection isnt really a viable option for gaming due to the amount of lag time in between realife and your comp. the only real hope for gaming on chrome books is a rooted user running a form of linex called chrubuntu. chrubuntu is a copy of ubuntu for chrome os and can be loaded through dev mode. if some one could break the cornals down and find the root acess point then you could run sudo su and be able to make system changes resulting in the ability to download other os’s including windows and even get plugins that were not ment to run on chrome os.

        i hope my answer helped.

        The answer is you can’t. On Chrome os you can’t actually install anything so you can’t install unity in order to use it. ( Lot’s of people put game’s that run on unity on the chrome web store but you still can’t run them).

      jayson… I am afraid you can not use windows on a chrome book. you see there is something called an operating system. Windows and this Google/Linux meld are two. The idea behind the chrome book is a minimum of space for a tight operating system. I suppose you could put windows on it in theory but it would be much like loading a studio apartment with all the furniture from a trailer you might live in- sure you can live in it but to get to the sink you have to climb over your two couches, table and queen size bed. Not going to work well…

      However let us all hope that cheap browser based games get better and better as more and more cash is spent on their cash shops… then in time even big companies will try to port their graphic stratospheric scenes of warfare and graphics onto it. They could do it if they put the data packets to feed online smoothly like everyone’s favorite lolz teen game library game Runescape.

      Until then jason you should save your pennies and buy a 600 dollar desktop with graphics and memory enough to run windows and pc CD size data games…

Just because they have products they have to pay for, which no one should blame them, considering phones, computers, etc. are very expensive to make, they need money so they can make them, doesn’t mean they are greedy.

    Hi Fred, thanks for stopping by.

    I haven’t tried those myself, but, I’m quite sure you can’t play World of Tanks, or War Thunder on the Chromebook. Both these games depend on software you have to download and then install locally. The Chrome OS does not work that way. It is, for all intents and purposes, basically just a browser.

    Hey guys you can run minecraft on a chromebook by using linux. just use this guide to install it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK6msARu_wQ. Also I have only seen minecraft running on the acer c720 so i don’t know if other chromebooks have enough power to use it. So you can run anything on linux on chromebooks (some things probably will only work with the acer c720,its the most powerful chromebook right now). Also chrome os does not support java (as of now) so I highly reccomend getting linux.

      It’s because Minecraft requires Java, which Chromebooks don’t support, besides, the Samsung Chromebook is probably to weak to play Minecraft.

      Hi Cameron. In short: you don’t. Chrome OS is different than Windows and OS X. It is a window to the web, it does what the web does. As 95% of what we all do on computers is on the internet a Chromebook supports exactly that, the web. It isn’t meant for downloading software and installing it, that’s Windows think.

    Can you go on game sites like http://www.aq.com/ and play and can you download files in Chromebook?

      January 13, 2015 @ 8:22 am

      Hi AE SUPPORTER :), that depends… I don’t know that particular site. But, as a rule of thumb it can be said that if you have to download files to make a game run (WoW, Minecraft, etc) than you can’t play it on a Chromebook. On the other hand, when you can play games in your browser you can be pretty certain that it will do perfectly fine on a Chromebook.

      On the point of downloading files, yes you can. There’s just not a lot of disk space on most Chromebooks as they are cloud devices. But with the right external hard drive you could go on downloading indefinitely.

      Hi ThelsoGuy, no you cannot. The Chromebook is a lot, but one thing it isn’t is a platform for serious gaming. For that you still need a PC.

      Any game that requires a download, install, memory, gfx, shaders AND the all important Windows, Mac or Linux OS will NOT play on a Chromebook. It is not a PC. It might look like one, but it isn’t one. You ‘can’ use remote desktop in some cases but that’s really stretching capability and performance. I am a PC gamer and I’ve never purchased a rig. Always built one. My system can run an MMOFPS or a MMORPG with decent gfx and frame rates. However it is a desktop and having a job where I work with Solidworks, Lightwave 3D etc. Going home to just sit at a desk is beginning to grate upon me. I just bought a very comfortable sectional couch and a nice big screen tv and surround sound system for my wife mostly. What is missing is writing (PBeM) and gaming. A laptop would have been a good alternative but honestly? Price, Heat pad, Lap desk, Mouse and headphones? Not exactly relaxing after a hard days work. Thus, I bought a 13.3″ Toshiba CB35-B3340 Chromebook 2. Full HD screen, decent interior sound and I have a 1TB Canvio Connect USB 3.0 HDD, a light, portable lap desk and wireless mouse. Leaning back with this set up is quite easy while my wife watches her cooking and home improvement shows. Do I miss heavy gaming? Not really, I still do this on my PC from time to time but during the week there are a few Chrome OS games and other things to do (streaming movies and shows, writing, surfing etc.) for the couple hours I have before bed. Hope this helps.

    I think it might be possible to run World of Warcraft on Chromebook but i haven’t seen any Cromebooks that have that much space on hd to install so big game. My Asus C200 can handle quite well most of games i’ve played with Steam using Crouton and xfce4. For example, Awesomenauts runs pretty smooth.

      Since it’s iOS and Android only, it will not be available on Chromebook until June for some Chromebook models and later in the year for everyone else.
