Arena of Valor (AoV) - Downloading Arena of Valor for iOS

A guide to installing Arena of Valor (arena of valor 5v5 arena game, AoV) on iOS for new users in North/Latin America or for users in regions where AoV is not yet accessible.

Update: After conflicting reports on the timing of the North America release, Arena of Valor is finally playable in North America and parts of South America. This post has been updated to reflect those changes.


Arena of Valor (AoV) will release in a few hours in North America, with a scheduled release for the Nintendo Switch this winter. If you’re unfamiliar with how to install games on your iPhone, or if you’re one of the unlucky ones in a region without AoV yet (* ahem * Japan), read on to find out how to download and install Arena of Valor.

How to Install Arena of Valor

For North American players, you can download the Arena of Valor app on iOS by visiting its page on iTunes.

You can only download Arena of Valor from the iTunes store if you have an iPhone that can handle the graphics, and an active iTunes account. Simply sign up for a new account if you have not yet. Look for Arena of Valor: 5v5 Game on your iTunes account and press the GET (or cloud) button to install.

Create a New Account (New Users + Users in Regions w/o AoV)

    1. First, Log out of the Appstore.
    2. Next, try to download a free app. It doesn’t matter which one, as we are not actually downloading it.
    1. A screen will pop up asking you to log in. Select “Create an Apple ID.”

You will need to be able to receive the email, so use an email address that you can actually check as part of registration. Create a password using a capital letter and a number.

    1. Change your country to the Philippines, or any nearby country where the ping won’t be too terrible.
    2. Once you press “Next” in the top right corner, you will be taken to a screen asking for things like your address. It is fine to put nonsense like “abcdefg” here, but you’ll get an error if your questions’ answers are too short. Make the answers a few characters long, at least. You can answer the question below this screen as either “On” or “Off”

    3. Next you’ll come to this page. You may set Credit Card as “None.” “1420” should work as the Postal Code in the Philippines. For those who choose a different country, find out how many digits their postal code is.
  1. After filling everything out and proceeding, you will be sent an activation code to the previously provided mail address. Receive the code from the previously provided email address and account creation will be complete.

After finishing all of this, you will be able to search for and download AoV from the app store.

Common Issues

Issue: I’m getting a strange error when trying to progress
Answer: It is possible that you will have to start again if account creation takes too long

Issue: I made an account, but can’t find AoV
Answer: It’s possible you’re still not in the Philippines store (or any store without AoV). Try killing the task before trying again.
※You can kill the task by pressing the home button twice and swiping the task store window upwards.

    • If it is the EU server, you need a VPN to connect or else it will say that the servers are not responding. NA/LatAM do not do this, however, and can be accessed via the server select on the login screen
