A couple of months ago, Blizzard announced a new partnership with Facebook which enables the game studio to integrate Facebook Live into all of its games on PC. This will allow the players to stream any Blizzard game on Facebook Live. Games like Overwatch, Diablo and Hearthstone can now be streamed easily directly to the live stream. This partnership was announced in June this year and it has finally gone live now.
Blizzard’s Facebook integration goes deeper than just enabling live streaming of games. It has already announced in the past that a Facebook login option will soon be added to all of its PC games in order to bring new social functionality in its games.
The live streaming feature is now available in all Blizzard games to players located in the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. Blizzard says that a complete roll out of this feature is expected to take place “soon.”
The ability to stream Blizzard games to Facebook Live is only limited to PC gamers at this point in time but the game studio is working on support for Mac. If you happen to own a Mac then you will have to wait for a while until Blizzard gets it up and running.
