R.I.P. Diablo III Launcher – Download the Battle.net Launcher

With Diablo III: Reaper of Souls barely a few weeks away from hitting gaming and retail stores, Blizzard Entertainment announces the Diablo III game launcher will be no more. On its stead, the Battle.net Launcher will be the main tool to access and update the game.

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!

UPGRADE NOW

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.
