Perfect World Entertainment announced this morning that Neverwinter, their flagship Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG, will be brought to next-gen consoles by Cryptic Studios. The game will first be available on the Xbox One in the first half of 2015 for NA and EU gamers. Like the PC version, the Xbox One version will be completely free-to-play with an optional cash shop.
Perfect World Entertainment CEO, Alan Chen, had this to say regarding the announcement: “Consoles are a perfect fit for action-oriented MMORPGs like Neverwinter, and we are thrilled to be one of the first publishers to bring premium free-to-play titles to leading next-gen platforms. Being able to bring Neverwinter to the Xbox One is a critical achievement for Perfect World. It is our first step taking our games beyond the PC market.”
