Eternal summer

Ancient MMO Neverwinter is trekking to the PlayStation 4 this summer, Perfect World has announced. The free-to-play foray is based upon the Dungeons & Dragons franchise, and will launch alongside all nine of its expansion packs. That equates to hundreds of hours of content – and you won't even need a PlayStation Plus subscription to tuck in.

"Fight against the likes of Tiamat, Demogorgon, Orcus, Valindra, and many more sinister enemies from Dungeons & Dragons lore," communications manager Alex Monney wrote on the PlayStation Blog. "Adventurers will also travel through iconic locations such as Icewind Dale and the Underdark while teaming up with characters straight from the novels of acclaimed author R.A. Salvatore, including Drizzt Do'Urden." That all went over our head, we must admit.

As mentioned, the game's due out this summer, but there's no firm release date in place yet. Will you be wielding your sword and shield in preparation for this complimentary outing? Stab us in the back via the comments section below.
