The update will make it incredibly easy to stream directly to Facebook via the Battle.net service, and Blizzard’s integration on the social media platform, which has a user base of 1.6 billion users, should have the Amazon-owned Twitch a little nervous.

Players with a Battle.net account will be able to stream Overwatch, World of Warcraft, StarCraft 2 and other Blizzard games via Blizzard Streaming, which is the first service of its kind offered by the company.

The best thing about Blizzard Streaming is that it’s all done via the app, meaning players don’t need to worry about capture cards or other hardware to stream their gameplay to the masses.
