Games are becoming more social than ever. Blizzard now let’s you stream their games directly from Battle.net to your wall. In their new initiative to integrate gaming and social media, Blizzard has added a little button in the corner of your Battle.net screen.
If you live anywhere on the Americas, Australia, New Zeland and Southeast Asia, all you need to do is open Battle.net, and a prompt will allow you to connect to Facebook and start a World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Hearthstone, HotS or Overwatch stream right there via Facebook Live.
They say the feature will be global very soon. Also, Mac users have to wait a bit more.
The new Blizzard Streaming service will aid players avoid the hassle of setting up tools like XSplit or external accessories.
This is just part of Blizzard’s plan to “pave the way for new social functionality in Blizzard games”, future updates will allow users to login directly to the games via Facebook. Now, we only can wait for a proper Twitch integration.
