Perfect World has announced a strong start on Xbox One for its free-to-play MMORPG, Neverwinter. The title has been out for six weeks, with over 1.6 million players giving the game a try.

Through the remainder of this year, Perfect World will be releasing five free expansions. These include the Tyranny of Dragons and Elemental Evil story arcs.

In addition to the 1.6 million players statistic, Perfect World has shared that 2.3 million characters have been created and 92,000 have already reached the maximum level (60). Additionally, 92 players have made it their mission to wipe out the dragon population, each killing over 1,000 of them.

You can check out a video of the game in action for more information.

 

Our Take
Given that free-to-play games thrive on the longevity of usership (translating into approximate lifetime value of a player), more content this year isn’t surprising. That said, five expansions (if they are substantial) sounds like it will keep players busy for some time.
