Diablo III Launcher Upgrading to Battle.net App

The old Diablo III launcher is being replaced with the new Battle.net app

Battle.net Logo
The Battle.net desktop app is a program that keeps all of Blizzard's games up to date, and provides news about them. It has been in beta since last August, and was optionally available during that time. It will now be an upgrade for everyone, replacing the game-specific launchers and updaters like the old Diablo III launcher.

In preparation for death's imminent descent, your Diablo III game launcher will soon be upgraded to our new desktop app for Battle.net. You'll receive the update automatically with Patch 2.0.1, arriving in the weeks leading up to the March 25 release of Reaper of Souls. If you want to upgrade your launcher in advance and save yourself a little time on patch day, just download Battle.net now!

Download the Battle.net App

Battle.net features single sign-on functionality that allows players to log in once to access Diablo III, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and the upcoming Heroes of the Storm, and lets you stay logged in for up to 30 days. Players can also install games directly through the app and keep them up-to-date automatically, as well as stay on top of the latest Blizzard news. For more information, check out the Battle.net web page.

Once Patch 2.0.1 goes live, the upgrade process will begin automatically the next time you start up the current launcher for Diablo III—or click here to download the app now and get ahead of the game.
