Free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons MMO Neverwinter is coming to PlayStation 4, publisher Perfect World Entertainment announced today. The PS4 edition will be out this summer, though a specific release date was not mentioned.

Neverwinter's PS4 edition will be available to everyone; it does not require PlayStation Plus. By comparison, the already-available Xbox One version of the game does require Xbox Live Gold.

In a press release, Perfect World further explained that Neverwinter's PS4 edition comes with "optimized" controls that make use of the DualShock 4's touchpad and party chat.

To get a closer look at Neverwinter for PS4, check out the trailer above and some images in the gallery below.

Neverwinter's PS4 edition comes with all the content from the base game (eight classes and nine expansions), as well as the newest update, The Maze Engine.
