Back in June Blizzard announced a collaboration with Facebook which would allow players to easily stream any of the developer’s games through Facebook Live. Today, the feature is finally going live.
Starting today the live-streaming capability will be available in every Blizzard game in the Americas, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, with a complete global rollout expected “soon.” It’s currently only available to PC gamers, but Mac support is also in the works. All you’ll need to do is connect your Battle.net account to Facebook, and then you can stream games like Overwatch or Hearthstone directly to your Facebook page.
Facebook Live streaming is just one part of a broader integration of the social network; Blizzard also previously announced that it would be adding a Facebook login option for all of its PC games in order to “pave the way for new social functionality in Blizzard games.”
