Installing the PBE Client

You can find the PBE installer here for Windows and here for Mac.

Installing on Windows

  • Open the downloaded League of Legends PBE installer.
  • Follow the instructions to install the PBE client in your preferred location. You'll have to agree to the Terms of Use during installation, even if you've already done so for the live client.
  • After installing, an option will appear to automatically launch the PBE client and start patching.

Installing on Mac

  • Drag the downloaded League of Legends PBE.dmg into your Applications folder.
  • After the files copy over, go into the Applications folder and launch League of Legends.
  • The client will automatically begin patching.

The login animation may be different, but otherwise the PBE client is the same as the live client! You can select your language by using the dropdown on the right, under your credentials.
