Neverwinter Closed Beta coming to Xbox One in February
Players interested in participating can sign up now.
Free-to-play massive multiplayer online role-playing game Neverwinter will be starting its closed beta on the Xbox One next month, publisher Perfect World Entertainment has announced. The closed beta will run for three days from February 5 and players can sign up to participate via the Neverwinter site.
The Xbox One version of the game will integrate with the friends list and use "optimized controls." The full game is scheduled to launch on Xbox One in early 2015 and will be free-to-play, although an active Xbox Live Gold subscription will be required.
Based in the Dungeons & Dragons Universe, Neverwinter launched on PC in 2013 to positive reception. An expansion, titled Tyranny of Dragons, launched in August last year. Speaking about bringing the game to console, Perfect World CEO Alan Chen said in a statement, "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."
