Today, Square Enix announced that Marvel’s Avengers will be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X when the console’s launch in the holiday of 2020.
Square Enix also announced that “players who own the current-gen version of the game will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version at no additional cost, regardless if players are moving from PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X.”
And not only will you be able to upgrade at no cost, but you’ll also be able to transfer your player profile to continue on your progression path. Cross-gen play will also be supported so that PS5 players can play with PS4 players and Xbox Series X players can play with Xbox One users.
The next-gen version of Marvel’s Avengers will come loaded with new features to take advantage of the power of the PS5 (more details on Xbox Series X, Stadia, and PC coming later).
These features include:
- Extremely fast load times
- Boosted resolution and fidelity
- Improved texturing
- Ray tracing
PS5 players can also choose between an Enhanced Graphics Mode or High Framerate mode. Although it wasn’t confirmed, you can expect a similar option for Xbox Series X players too.
On the official PS Blog, Crystal Dynamics shared some gorgeous PS5 screenshots of Marvel’s Avengers, which you can check out down below:
