Free massively-multiplayer online role-playing game Neverwinter is coming to PlayStation 4 this summer and does not require PlayStation Plus to play.

The game, naturally, has optional microtransactions, but you should be able to play from start to level-cap, as one of eight classes - and across nine expansions of content - for free.

Neverwinter has been around for a few years on PC. It's made by Cryptic Studios, the studio that once made City of Heroes/Villains as well as Champions Online and Star Trek Online, so it knows what it's doing.

Neverwinter is a Dungeons & Dragons game but skews towards more action-packed combat rather than the turn-based thinky kind. It's been available on Xbox One for just over a year so its console arrival on PS4 should be slick.

Our review of Neverwinter on PC is a now few years out of date but should give you an idea of what to expect.
