This will facilitate their social gaming experience on the service.

Chief Operating Officer of Blizzard Entertainment, Paul Sams, said that they are pleased to be working with Facebook to integrate their platform with Battle.net, in order to enhance the social gaming experience for their players. He also stated that this new functionality will make it easier than ever to connect with friends on the Battle.net gaming platform, and play StarCraft II and future Blizzard Entertainment games together.

This new integration will be tested in the near future through the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty closed-beta test. The feature will be available to all StarCraft II players when the game releases later this year.

More information about other facebook-related features on Blizzard’s Battle.net will be revealed in the future.
