The Blizzard App, formerly known as the Battle.net Launcher, is the digital platform for Blizzard Entertainment's recent video game releases. The launcher supports the following games, and is supported on both Microsoft Windows and macOS.
- World of Warcraft (supported since the Mists of Pandaria expansion, the Beta of the launcher supported the Cataclysm expansion.)
- Diablo III and its expansion pack, Reaper of Souls
- Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
- StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, and its expansion packs, Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void
- Heroes of the Storm
The Blizzard App will support Destiny 2 in a future update.
The client itself supports automatic patching for the games outlined above, and is able to pre-load expansion content before official release. There is currently no in-launcher support for Blizzard Entertainment's earlier offerings (such as Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos) via this platform. The Launcher supports two-factor authentication via both the Battle.net Authenticator and Blizzard Mobile Authenticator.
The Blizzard App was previously called the Battle.net desktop app; the name was dropped in March 2017 in favour of its current name.
