Microsoft's Xbox One console will be host to Neverwinter's Rise of Tiamat content add-on later this year, and given the fact that this is the first of five such add-ons, PC gamers certainly won't be the only ones enjoying the MMORPG's continued expansion. Word is:

Neverwinter: Rise of Tiamat follows the events of the currently available Neverwinter: Tyranny of Dragons campaign and the upcoming Siege of Neverwinter event, which will be available for Xbox One on June 4.
