Hey everyone reading! As part of NetEase Games’ increasingly exciting portfolio, I am creating an English guide on how to create a universal NetEase game account for their game titles. The created game account would be compatible for both mobile games and their other online/web-games.
Step 1: Go to their account registration site
NetEase account creation site: https://zc.reg.163.com/regInitialized?onlyNetease=1
Step 2: Fill in the basic particulars first (see image below)
Step 3: Anti-spam verification (see image below)
Step 4: Overseas Phone number verification (see image below)
Step 5: Successful registration!
Click on the big prominent rectangular centered red button to attempt registration. Let’s hope you will be able to register successfully! Do remember to save your credentials somewhere else as there is no back-up e-mail recovery.
Step 6: Login to any NetEase mobile game with the registered account
NetEase’s mobile games usually come with a good variety of login options, including Guest Account and popular China Chat Apps: WeChat and QQ (It might be more convenient if you might already be using them).
Otherwise, login with your previously registered account using the center red icon.
Enter your username, along with the e-mail extension you have selected (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org).
Enter your password with the 2nd prompt.
Your successful login will usually come with some account agreement prompts, tap away with the green options and you shall be good to go!
Step 7: Start playing!

For Android users, any of their mobile games’ homepage would usually contain a prominent large green button which downloads the APK file immediately.
