Soon you’ll be able to show all of your Facebook friends just how good you are atOverwatch. Developer Blizzard has announced a new partnership with Facebook that will see the game studio integrate Facebook Live into all of its games on PC so that you can stream everything from Hearthstone to Diablo directly on your Facebook timeline. Blizzard has given the feature the name “Go Live” and says that it’s in the process of implementing the functionality.
Along with the streaming news, Blizzard also announced that it’s adding a Facebook login option for all of its PC titles, which the developer says “will pave the way for new social functionality in Blizzard games.”
No specific date has been announced, but Blizzard says that Facebook integration should be in place later this month.
“It’s important to us to provide our players with features and services that make it easy and fun to share their experiences with each other,”
says Gio Hunt, Blizzard’s executive vice president of corporate operations.
Last month Blizzard parent company Activision announced similar functionality for its e-sports platform MLG.tv, which would broadcast live competitive gaming tournaments directly on Facebook, starting with Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Blizzard, meanwhile, is home to some of the biggest e-sports titles around, from established games like Starcraft and Hearthstone to up-and-comers like Heroes of the Storm and the just-launched shooter Overwatch.
