Blizzard announced yesterday that Real ID — a “voluntary, optional level of identity designed to keep players connected even outside of WoW — will be launched in conjunction with the 3.3.5 WoW patch. This basically means that you’ll be able to stay in touch with any gamers that use the Battle.net service.

This new Real ID feature will further enhance the social-networking aspect of Battle.net. For many players, this is a good news as they can still stay in touch with buddies and guildies once they have moved, temporarily or not, from one game to another.
