How to download and play Catalyst Black on Android?

Download and play Catalyst Black on Android and iOS

We suggest you discover how to download and play Catalyst Black on Android. This way, you will be able to discover the game in pre-launch, before its official release, and in complete safety. To do so, we will propose different methods allowing you to try the long awaited baby of Super Evil Megacorp!

Download the Catalyst Black APK via TapTap

In order to play Catalyst Black, we need to get our hands on its APK. An APK is simply a type of file that stands for Android Package. It is a bit like the "zip" file of mobile applications. However, the Catalyst Black file is an XAPK, a small variant of the APK. Therefore, we will need an application that can read this file format. In order to simplify our lives, we suggest that you use TapTap to download and install Catalyst Black.

  • To get TapTap, go to the official website;
  • Click on "Download";
  • Then select "Download TapTap APK" in the new window that has just appeared.

Install the TapTap APK on your mobile

Once you have downloaded the TapTap APK, make sure it is on your phone. If you downloaded it from your PC, simply connect a USB cable from your computer to your phone to transfer the file. Make a note of where the APK is located.

Your phone won't be able to do much with this file in this form. So we'll need an application to make it usable. To do this, we suggest you use the excellent APKMirror Installer (Official) available on the Play Store.

  • Launch APKMirror Installer and click on "Browse files" to select the TapTap APK (in my case, it was in the "Download" file);
  • Click on "Install package" located towards the bottom right corner of the screen to turn TapTap into an application;
  • Depending on your phone's settings, it may ask you toallow Unknown Sources. Don't worry if this message is followed by a warning. Your phone rightly warns you about the danger of installing unknown files on your phone. However, as TapTap and Catalyst Black are not available on the Play Store, your phone considers them unknown sources. Accept that APKMirror Installer can handle files from unknown sources to continue;
  • Finally, the last step is to install TapTap. Click on "Install app" in the last window that appears.

  • Once the authorization is accepted, a pop-up will ask you if you want to install Catalyst Black. All you have to do is click on "Install" and wait a few seconds.
