The launcher will download and update the game data with bittorrent, install and configure the game properly for you and keep it up to date. The launcher is free software as well. Linux users can also install a Flatpak.
The downloaded content is stored by the launcher in XDG_DATA_HOME on Linux, Program Files on Windows, and in Library/Application Support on macOS. See Game locations page on the wiki for details.
Unvanquished requires about 600MB of disk space for a fresh installation.

The Dæmon engine also supports OpenGL 2.1 with
ARB_framebuffer_object but the game will be too slow on such hardware. More information on the wiki: GPU compatibility matrix.
- Intel: If you get graphical issues on Intel UHD when firing weapons, just use the
mediumpreset and everything will be fine.

Your operating system or unarchiver may not extract the game in a way it can work.
The game may not run if you don't know what application translocation means.
- Universal Zip — for archiving purpose;
- Torrent — to help seed the game for the launcher;
- Compile it yourself — if you want to make a mod.
Note : if you need to build the game to run on an unsupported system (like a very old Linux distribution), you only need to build the engine.
