Blizzard will now feature Facebook integration in all of its current and upcoming games.
Players will be able to sign up for and log in to games such as World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Diablo III and Overwatch, using their Facebook accounts.
Battle.net gamers will also be able to share their favourite moments on Facebook using the site’s “Go Live” streaming functionality.
“Blizzard games are best when played with friends, so it’s important to us to provide our players with features and services that make it easy and fun to share their experiences with each other,” said Gio Hunt, executive vice president of corporate operations at Blizzard Entertainment.
“We’re working closely with Facebook on this integration for Overwatch, as well as our other games, and we look forward to sharing further details on our plans as development progresses.”
The new features are likely to be implemented before the end of June 2016.
