Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios are bringing the free-to-play MMORPG Neverwinter to consoles, and they are starting with the Xbox One.


While technically free-to-play, an Xbox Live Gold account is still required to play Neverwinter, as is the case with every other online game on Xbox One.

“Neverwinter is our premier title to bring to console players,” said Perfect World Entertainment CEO, Alan Chen. “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,” Chen concluded.

American and European gamers can expect the fantasy MMORPG hit Xbox One in the first half of 2015. There are no news about any other platform, but we’re guessing PS4 owners won’t have to wait too long to join their Xbox One brethren.
