The free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons-based MMO Neverwinter came to Xbox One in March, but fans of the franchise who owned PlayStation 4s have been waiting for publisher Perfect World to keep its promise that they would get the game. Now, it appears the wait is over.
The game will be released on PS4 on July 19, but Perfect World is selling a Head Start pack for $19.99 that will let eager roleplayers into the game a week early on July 12, as well as provide additional in-game items including an Onyx weapon pack, a 20-pack of enchanted keys, and an Onyx Horse mount.
The game will include the previous nine expansions that had appeared on PC, as well as prep players for the 10th that will be coming later this year called Storm King’s Thunder. PC players will get that in August, but it won't come to console until some time later. Neverwinter has been optimized for the DualShock 4's touch pad and will have Party Chat integration.PlayStation Plus is not needed to play.

Oh wow nice! I spent a ton of time playing this on the xbox during a period of unemployment. Pretty decent console MMO that allows you to get plenty of currency to purchase the additional content.
I wonder if they'll have cross-platform play on consoles, since I'm sure the versions on those will be quite a bit behind what is on PC.
