A new trailer has been released for Marvel’s Avengers’ next gen versions, offering an overview of everything the updated ports will boast.
Streamed through the official Marvel’s Avengers YouTube account on Mar. 4, the trailer runs down the list of improvements offered on next-gen versions of the games as a service title. The next gen versions of the game will be available Mar. 18, with those who purchased the game on PS4 or Xbox One able to upgrade to the new versions free of charge.
In addition to faster load times and higher resolution textures, the next gen ports will also feature improved environmental destruction effects across all of Marvel’s Avengers’ areas and characters. Likewise, Cross-Gen multiplayer will also be implemented, meaning players can continue to play with friends who own the PS4 or Xbox One versions of the game even if they upgrade.
These improvements are all shown in action via short snippets of cutscenes and gameplay segments. Sparks fly and particle effects glow as characters wreak havoc against enemies, all while the game runs at 60 fps in glorious HD.
It’s a short and simple trailer, but one which gets the job done in showing off what the next gen versions of Marvel’s Avengers will offer. The full trailer can be viewed down below.
