Set along the iconic Sword Coast, Neverwinter transports players into a fully realized roleplaying experience based on Wizards of the Coast’s storied franchise with a living world and immersive fantasy storylines, all for free.
When it arrives on PlayStation® 4, Neverwinter will feature all existing content from the base game, including eight playable classes and nine expansions. This includes the game’s latest update, The Maze Engine, allowing players to experience the latest Dungeons & Dragons adventures with their friends. Neverwinter on PlayStation® 4 will be free-to-play for all console owners (PlayStation® Plus not required) and features controls optimized to incorporate the DualShock 4’s touchpad and Party Chat integration.
“Neverwinter on PlayStation® 4 secures Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic’s place on consoles,” said Bryan Huang, CEO for Perfect World Entertainment. “Our goal with Neverwinter has always been to deliver a high-quality, D&D MMORPG that exceeds our players’ expectations. As the PlayStation Nation makes their way through the Forgotten Realms, we look forward to expanding the Neverwinter experience with our upcoming expansion, Storm King’s Thunder, and beyond.”
