Blizzard’s game launcher, Battle.net, is getting a big update, which should make browsing through your library a little easier. Blizzard has been testing Battle.net’s 2.0 changes on its beta server. Now the changes are official, and rolling out for everyone.
There are five big changes meant to improve day-to-day use of the launcher, according to the news release:
1. Improved navigation and layout—you can now favorite your games and arrange them for ease of access
2. A much more expansive layout for news and game content in full-page view
3. A revamped social pane so you can better see your friends and what they’re up to on each game tab
4. Major accessibility improvements—we’ve added the ability to navigate most of the app with your keyboard, increased our screen reader support, and improved the color contrast
5. A new, consolidated notifications hub for messages and download status
Parts of North America will be receiving the patch first, and then they’ll be used to test the launcher’s stability. If things go well, more accounts will get the update in the weeks ahead, including players in other regions.
Blizzard also says that it intends to keep developing Battle.net, and this is “just the beginning of new features coming.” It continued: “We’ll keep iterating, improving, and adding to the app over time.”
