Blizzard launches new Battle.net website

Good news, Blizzard fans. A new Battle.net has been unveiled, all nice and ready to go for public use. There's are a range of changes and the entire look has been overhauled, and there's been changes to the Battle.net accounts.

Now, you can merge your Battle.net account with your World of Warcraft account, or in fact, any other Blizzard account. Everything can be contained within one unified Battle.net account, making it easier to remember everything. Users of older games, such as StarCraft, Diablo or Warcraft III will still have to use their old Battle.net accounts, now called "Battle.net Classic."

If you're currently playing World of Warcraft, it's best to read the following from Blizzard's website: "Currently, creating a Battle.net account and merging World of Warcraft accounts is entirely optional. However, as we continue to build additional functionality into the new Battle.net, we will eventually require all active World of Warcraft accounts to migrate over to Battle.net Accounts in order to continue playing." Additionally, all upcoming Blizzard games will require a Battle.net account, so it's best to make one now, if you haven't already.

Feel free to head over now to Battle.net and enjoy all the changes and upgrades, and post your feedback on it in the comments below.
