Blizzard Entertainment It has released the biggest update to the Battle.net online platform “in years.”
Battle.net has been Blizzard’s internet portal for games since 1996, Diablo released. Since then, it has become the launcher for every modern Blizzard game. It is also home to other Activision Blizzard games, including the latest Call of Duty and Destiny 2 when Activision Blizzard is the publisher.
Blizzard has been testing the new format for Battle.net over several months for those opting to the platform’s beta. It is now the default version of the launcher.
Battle.net 2.0 adds a new format with bigger headlines and expanded social tabs. It also adds new accessibility options, including most of the launcher navigation with keyboard. It also added a new notification hub to make it easier to see messages from friends and see when games or updates were finished downloading.
For now, the update is rolling out in parts of North America. Coming to other regions in the coming weeks.
