The Launcher has been the home of all Blizzard games for ages and just like the company has grown over the years. The developers recently started to gradually unlock the latest version for all players and are now presenting the features of the latest launcher in a short video.

If you want to play WoW, Diablo, Hearthstone or Starcraft on your PC, you can hardly avoid the Launcher. He organizes the games, automatically downloads updates and keeps you in touch with your friends. This has been the case for a long time and will continue to do so for a long time. Otherwise the developers would hardly have invested resources in the further development of the launcher, which recently led to the introduction of the latest version. For a few days, all players have been gradually switched from the old to the new client, which has already been used in a beta version for a few months. The developers at Blizzard have taken this as an opportunity to create a small video in which they introduce us to the new launcher and explain its new features and advantages.

This includes, for example, better usability with the keyboard, the ability to individually design and sort the list of games, but also an improved clarity of the friends list and the notification area. The new download window, in which you can clearly see all necessary updates and currently running downloads, is one of the new features. You can see what else is new in the video below (unfortunately only available in English).

How do you like the new version of the Launcher? Are you a fan of the changes in favor of more clarity or did you like the old client better because it was much leaner and simpler?
