World of Warcraft: Blizzard Launches Real ID Parties

Updated Fri, Jul 15, 2011 by Saia

A while back we mentioned a new paid for service Blizzard was planning to introduce to World of Warcraft: the ability to raid with friends across different servers. Well tonight the service has gone live, in the US at least.

This is basically a preview to see how the service is received and test it out. As a result, the service is free. It will eventually - probably - incur a fee to use but only by the party leader. Blizzard has compiled a good FAQ explaining the service but it’s going to be great for those of us who miss playing with friends who have migrated servers and want to do some heroic 5-mans together.
