Publisher Perfect World Entertainment announced the news today, also revealing some initial player statistics, and divulging plans to support the free-to-play game with five free expansions in 2015.
Since Neverwinter was released, players have accomplished the following feats:
2.3 million characters created with over 92,000 reaching the level 60 cap
86 million minutes of Neverwinter played
16 billion Astral Diamonds earned
10 million parties formed
Over 1 billion enemies slain including Undead, Orcs, and Bandits
92 players have killed over 1,000 dragons
Neverwinter is also available on PC, though it's unclear how many people are playing on that platform.
Perfect World's announcement today also included a statement from Xbox boss Phil Spencer, who said, "We're thrilled gamers have embraced this unique free-to-play MMORPG on Xbox One."
As for the five free expansions, Perfect World isn't saying much about them yet, confirming only that they will be based on the Tyranny of Dragons and Elemental Evil storylines from within the overall Dungeons & Dragons lore. All five will debut later this year, though specific release dates have not been announced.
Neverwinter requires an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
