With the upcoming release of Blizzard's next games Starcraft II and Diablo III, Battle.Net was relaunched as a central account management for all Blizzard games. Starting with World of Warcraft (by merging WoW account), you can now create a single login for future Blizzard games.
One neat feature of this new Battle.Net is that you can add your games to the account. By storing your cd-keys on your account, you can download the games directly from Blizzard.
Some of the benefits of the Battle.net account include:
- Fewer passwords to remember. One single log-in lets you access World of Warcraft, the online Blizzard store, and more -- including upcoming games such as StarCraft II and Diablo III.
- Opt in to upcoming Blizzard Entertainment beta tests. Put yourself in the running to be invited to test upcoming games.
- Easy access to your classic games. Store your CD keys for classic Blizzard Entertainment titles, and then download the games whenever you wish.
- And more to come... We're planning to add more features in the future, including tools to help friends communicate between games and bring players closer together.
