Blizzard Entertainment has released the biggest update to its online platform, Battle.net, “for years.”
Battle.net has been Blizzard’s internet portal for its games since the launch of Diablo in 1996. Since then, it has also become a launcher for any modern Blizzard game. It is also home to a select few other Activision Blizzard games, including the recent Call of Duty titles and Destiny 2 back when Activision Blizzard was its publisher.
Blizzard has been testing this new layout for Battle.net for several months for those who have chosen the platform̵
Battle.net 2.0 adds a new layout with a larger news section and expanded social tab. It also adds new accessibility options, including navigating most of the launcher with just one keyboard. It also adds a new notification center to make it easier to see messages from friends and find out when a game or update has finished downloading.
The update is currently being rolled out in parts of North America. It will come to other regions in the coming weeks.
