Blizzard has just released information on the new Battle.net accounts. Players of of the Warcraft, Diablo, and Starcraft series will remember this name from the past. Blizzard will be using this new method to allow players to buy and log into games with their account name and password to help limit all those multiple account information that some have to keep track of.
We're pleased to introduce the Battle.net account -- a brand-new way for players to manage their Blizzard Entertainment games, make online Blizzard store purchases, log in to World of Warcraft, and more using just one set of login information. World of Warcraft players now have the option to create a Battle.net account, merge a World of Warcraft account (or multiple accounts) with it, and begin logging in to the game, the Armory, and the forums using their new Battle.net account login information.

Some of the benefits of the Battle.net account include:
- Fewer passwords to remember. One single login 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.
At this time, signing up is completely optional -- but if youre interested in taking advantage of the benefits of the Battle.net account today, check out the FAQ for more information, or create an account now.
