Neverwinter launches on Xbox One

    
81
You’ve played the MMO while sitting hunched forward at your computer — now it’s time to enjoy Neverwinter while slouching back on your couch at home. The D&D MMO officially launched today on the Xbox One in Europe, North America, and South America.

Like its PC counterpart, the Xbox One version of Neverwinter is free-to-play, although it does require an Xbox Live Gold membership to access (Xbox Live Silver members can snag it through April 2nd, however). The console version includes all of the same content as well up through the Tyranny of Dragons module.

You can watch the Xbox One launch trailer after the break!

Circling back to this thread.  I have been playing since it launched.  I am totally hooked on this game.  There are many reasons.  I like the hack n slash combat.  The loot system is quite robust and complex along with gear stats and companions.  Lets not for get the D&D inspired character development system.    I personally don’t believe in F2P games, as in nothing is free.  Developers are not going to spend hundreds of thousands of human hours and money making a game not to get rewarded.  So without the subscription I don’t mind spending 10 bucks a month or so on some Zen to get convenience items like bags, keys and such.  
I recently added a wireless keyboard to my Xbone for chatting and that has made my game play experience much better.

thewavehd Oh, but this does not run on Cryptic’s servers.  It runs on Microsoft’s servers and network.  Gee you have to pay to keep those running smooth?  Cry me a river.

This game is alot of fun.  It’s very casual friendly and action combat oriented for a MMO.  It’s great for me because it’s my first MMO experience on a console.  Love sitting on the couch and playing.  I’ve tried hooking up my PC to my TV but the font is way too small in chat windows and quest windows (LOTRO, SWTOR, ESO, STO).  I also love MMO’s with companions to the character (SWTOR).  I already copied by ESO character to the XB1, just waiting for June 9 launch.  Neverwinter is a good free to play game as you don’t really NEED to spend any money to enjoy the experience.  That said, I’ve spent money on convenience items like inventory bags and higher tier companions.  The game is free so I have no problem spending some money to support the developers especially if I’m enjoying the game.

Craw Estranged Oskiee with windows 10 you will be able to play with some who is playing the same game you are with a mouse and keyboard on pc (cross-platform) meaning if you buy the game on your xbox one you will be able to play your friends on pc. and that arguiment about key board and mouse being unfair was when the 360 was out.

Adrianevans84 Not really a fair comparison since we pay for internet and electricity anyway whether we use the Xbox One or the PC to connect to Neverwinter. This is just one more bill.

Do you pay for your internet or electricity? Those are necessary to play the game are they not? So no game has ever been free to play.

Estranged DPandaren umm, PS4 and XB1 Destiny ended up being identical, 1080p 30fps, visually identical too. they had help from some Microsoft engineers, but I wouldn’t call it a “terrible time”

thewavehd Blame Microsoft. This is a condition for them to put it on the Xbox One at all. I doubt Cryptic sees a cent of that Xbox Gold membership fee.

i am a big fan of this game, i have played it on PC for a long time and really enjoyed my time spent. So when i heard it was coming to Xbox One i was really happy, as i could now play with more of my friends who could not run the game on their PC’s, however i was a bit shocked when i realized that i would have to get a gold account on xbox to play it along with my other friends who did not have xbox live (gold). 

Now this would normally not bother me but for a game that is free to play should it not be as such? 
so as it stands i was able to make a character (name it and customize it) without any interruption but as soon as you get in game on the first mission on the beach xbox begins to prompt you (in full screen) that you require an xbox gold account to play this game… you can close this prompt but it will do it again and again about every 15-20 seconds. 

this is not free to play. this is almost as bad as a virus that locks your computer down and tells you to pay up to unlock it. now i can see what your gonna say  60 bucks a year is not bad, its been a thing since the first xbox, so why is it a problem now? 

its a problem because the game otherwise does not require that i spend that 60 dollars at all on PC so why should it be any different on the xbox. sure the xbox is cheaper than a gaming computer now a days (sort of…) but i dont feel its right of them to say this game if free to play but… you need to pay us first to enjoy it. at that point why even let me download the game? or run it in the first place? and its not just never winter its other free to play games as well to my understanding (i have only heard not actually tried other games).

so whats the point of a free to play game on a console if its not really free to play… (someone had to be paid in order to play).
