Blizzard’s online gaming platform will integrate with Facebook to enhance the social gaming experience.
Before explaining all the details, we’d humorously like to say hello to Battlebook. Not the real name, but a fitting one nonetheless.
The big developer today announced a cooperation with Facebook with “the world’s most popular social platform”. The first step in the integration will enable StarCraft II players who are friends on Facebook to add themselves to their Battle.net friend lists.
“We’re pleased to be working with Facebook to integrate their platform with Battle.net to enhance the social-entertainment experience for our players,” said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. “This new functionality will make it easier than ever to connect with friends on Battle.net and play StarCraft II and future Blizzard Entertainment games together.”
These Facebook features will start to be integrated during the StarCraft II beta. Should you not yet be in the beta, we still have a few days worth of ourto go, where we give away a batch at midnight as long as we have keys in store.
