  • Windows - Windows computers and devices will automatically update games when they are turned on. The PC will search for updates unless automatic updates are blocked by the user of the device. If for some reason it is blocked, players can navigate to the windows store, find the game in the store, and if there is an update available, there will be an option for the player to update the game.
  • IOS - On IOS, apps will automatically update when the device itself updates. If the user has automatic updates enabled, the device will update the content itself when a new update is available. If not, players will need to go to the app store, search for the game, then press update.
  • Chromebook - Players will need to go to the app store in order to update the game using a Chromebook. This is accessed by clicking on the store app on the computer, then typing in the name of the game, and there should be an update option if there is an update available for the game. Players can activate automatic updates to their Chromebook by going in the settings, going to manage app updates, then turning on automatic updates, and making sure the device matches up with the checklist for automatic updates. From now on, the game should automatically update, and players will not need to do this manually.
