Neverwinter is about to become the Xbox One’s first Free-to-Play MMORPG. Perfect World Entertainment recently announced a deal between the publisher and Microsoft, bringing the previously PC exclusive MMO to the Xbox One worldwide during the first half of 2015.

Just like Microsoft’s F2P approach on the Xbox 360, gamers will need to have a Gold Xbox Live membership in order to to player Neverwinter. In an exclusive interview with IGN, Neverwinter’s lead producer, Andy Velasquez, mentioned the console version will retain the majority of the content but, he then added “with some minor exceptions.”

Of course, the move to console means Neverwinter’s control scheme will shift to the Xbox controller, which utilizes the triggers and face buttons for quick and easy access to frequently used abilities. Sadly, cross-platform play will not be available and players on Xbox Live will only be able to communicate with others on the console.

Michael Dunaway has been part of the MMOBomb team for years and has covered practically every major Free-to-Play title since 2009. In addition to contributing First Look videos and news articles, Michael also serves as the Community Manager for the upcoming MMORPG, Skyforge.


  1. Yet, reading all this stuff about “i dont troll, but many people do” and i dont think that is true……. i think that this could have been handled in a better way folks rather than repeating the same ol “having fallatio with overweight men” Really? i mean really? Seriously, REALLY?

    • Dude this guy wont stop. Go look at the other articals on the main page. He’s doing it to other users as well.

      Please don’t comment or he’ll do it to you.

        • First of all don’t call me scotty, it’s annoying and there is no “y” in my name.

          Second, you need to stop now. I have already sent several reports about what your doing here and it will be stopped !!

          P.S. I am not your “Mate” you queef.

          • Cannot stop, will not stop. So what happened to all them reports Scotty? Do you have any more idle threats you’d like to throw? You can’t police the internet and there is always going to be people like me who do it for one reason and one reason only–to get a rise. Shits and giggles. And it works. All the time.

  2. 1. Game is hosted by a bad company.
    2. Game has been broken for a long time.
    3. Xbox One requires subscriber status for all online play, even free games like this which defeats the point of having a f2p MMMORPG on a console.
    4. Most people had forgotten this game even existed because it was handled so poorly.

  3. 1) I think that true players will never buy an xbox one, but will buy a ps4 or a pc for gamers (even xbox 360 users)
    2) I will never accept the definition of FTP of games on consoles that need a subscription to be paid to play online..

  4. This game has been unbalanced since beta. Has not been fixed, horrible optimization. Pay to win. It is just not worth your time. Game Sux™

  5. Well… PWE is turning into one of the worst company. I can’t see how this is going to workout. I can see this as a massive failure to everyone. If War Thunder and Sony are going well with their cross platform. Some people just want to see the world burn…

          • Plenty of people perform fellatio. I do but only on overweight men at truck stops.

          • “Plenty of people perform fellatio. I do but only on overweight men at truck stops.”

            This comment you keep putting everywhere, you do know that they have your email and not mine right?

            I mean, how stupid and childish do you have to be.

        • Boy your jealous that the user Scott shut you down so you have to run around pretending to be somebody else. Like he said, they have YOUR email now stupid.

          • Yeah that crybaby got pissed and now all he can do is cry and try to pretend to be other people lmao.

          • Jesus, eat a dick kid. Stop whining and perform fellatio on overweight men at truck stops.

            Maybe try and swallow an overweight man’s dick?

          • Good job BOOM!

            If your gonna try and do a troll post, try using another user and not me. Although you did make me look good !!


  6. I just don’t see this working out, i think the reason why F2P has worked out on PS4 is because Warframe, Blacklight:Retribution and DCU’s F2P approach aren’t that bad, neverwinter would have to change a lot in that aspect if it wants people to play it continually, it might work on PC, but i’m not sure how accepting non-PC players may be towards their methods.

      • I can assure you this game will be one the biggest FAILs in the Xbox community. If this game was transfer to SONY they might have a chance. If you think about it not a lot of people have Xbox outside the US. Most of them are PS. Now if this was in PS. The game might have a chance.

        • Sorry for changing and trolling your post. I am a loser and I need help. You are better than me in every way Scott Sigurbjartsson.

          • It’s okay I forgive you.

            Nex time try and actually hack my email so when I check it shows you just changed your name to mine.

          • It’s funny that you think you need a valid email to post comments here. You can use any email you want to post under any name. Oh but keep blaming boom..I find it hilarious to watch you squirm you little shet.

        • Well, seeing as how i’m your girlfriend and carrying your second child, I don’t see how this comment is true or why it’s being repeated.

          • Well, seeing as how i’m a cheating whore who performs fellatio on overweight men at truck stops, I don’t see how this comment is false or why it isn’t being repeated more.

          • I know whore, I’m a queer and a loser who performs fellatio on overweight men at truck stops.

          • So you put this after everything everybody say’s?

            “Well, seeing as how i’m a cheating whore who performs fellatio on overweight men at truck stops, I don’t see how this comment is false or why it isn’t being repeated more.”

            I think you like to have sex with fat people at truck stops. You wont shut up about it.

            Your jealous that you can’t have what me and Scott have.

          • I get it now !!

            “I know whore, I’m a queer and a loser who performs fellatio on overweight men at truck stops.”


            It’s okay, one day you’ll find happiness too.

        • Brought you out now troll.

          GROW UP and stop using other peoples names for your trolls you queef. And good job admitting to being a complete homo freak.

          Leave me out of it !!

          • Awww..leave you out of it? Grow up? I think not. You aren’t safe from anonymous users on the net mate. Little scotty is mad. Oooohh..scotty don’t~

          • I’m a little queer who thinks he’s an internet badass and hands out ban threats like he owns the place. I’m so scary! I’ll reach through the monitor and totally castrate you with my internet powers.
