New Battle.net launches


Blizzard's launched the new-look Battle.net. Actually, it launched last night, but we were asleep. We should take more drugs.

"Beginning with World of Warcraft, the new Battle.net account grants access to Blizzard Entertainment games, websites, and online services - all with a single e-mail address and password," says the service's blurb.

The service's revamp paves the way for the launch of StarCraft II, which Blizzard has always said would be a tandem affair to Battle.net's facelift.

Founder & Publisher (Former)

Patrick Garratt is a games media legend - and not just by reputation. He was named as such in the UK's 'Games Media Awards', the equivalent of a lifetime achievement award. After garnering experience on countless gaming magazines, he joined Eurogamer and later split from that brand to create VG247, putting the site on the map with fast, 24-hour a day coverage, and assembling the site's earliest editorial teams. He retired from VG247, and the games industry, in 2017.
