StarCraft II's Battle.net Preview
2010/02/09 at 5:39 PM
Blizzard just launched a new page on their StarCraft II website that contains a preview of the new
integrated service for all Blizzard games, including World of Warcraft.
In this preview you will find some of the new features and developmental screenshots of the new service—which includes competitive arenas, cross-connectivity between Blizzard games and a way to post mods and community created content. There is also a video interview with Greg Canessa, Project Director for Battle.net, where he covers all of this and more.
As this pertains to World of Warcraft players as we will most likely see most of the previewed features integrated into the game in future content patches.
I am personally very excited about this, how about you?
