Blizzard’s game launcher, Battle.net, is getting a major update to make browsing your library a little easier. Blizzard has tested Battle.net’s 2.0 changes on its beta server. Now the changes are official and available to everyone.
According to the press release, there are five big changes that are designed to improve the daily use of the launcher:
1. Improved navigation and layout – you can now set your games as favorites and arrange them for easy access
2. A much more extensive layout for news and game content in full-screen view
3. A redesigned social window so that you can better see your friends and their activities on each game tab
4. Major Accessibility Improvements – We’ve added the ability to navigate most of the app with your keyboard, increased screen reader support, and improved color contrast
5. A new, consolidated notification hub for messages and download status
Parts of North America will receive the patch first and then will be used to test the stability of the launcher. If all goes well, more accounts will be updated in the coming weeks, including players in other regions.
Blizzard also says it intends to continue developing Battle.net and this is “just the beginning of new features”. It went on, “We will continue to iterate, improve, and expand the app over time.”
