Blizzard Entertainment announced in a press release that they will be partnering with Facebook to allow players to stream their Blizzard games directly to Facebook, as well as utilize their Login service:
Blizzard games are best when played with friends, and new Facebook integration features such as Facebook Login and Live API will make that easier than ever.
Not only will players be able to stream directly to the social media platform, but the integration will allow them to login to Blizzard games with their Facebook credentials.
Blizzard is in the process of incorporating Facebook’s Live API in order to create its own “Go Live” streaming functionality for its games. When this functionality is implemented, players will for the first time be able to livestream their Blizzard-gaming sessions directly to their Facebook timelines, and friends will be able to subscribe and be notified when new streams are available.
This announcement comes as a relief to Overwatch players since there is currently no way to export your “Play of the Game” and “Highlights” clips from the game without using third-party software.
Regardless of this new feature with Facebook streaming, it would be ideal to players if “Highlights” and “Play of the Game” clips were stored locally on your PC/console hard drive for easy grabbing, even after you close the game.
