Square Enix has announced that Marvel's Avengers is officially coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when the consoles launch this holiday. Those who purchase the game for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, either physically or digitally,(physically version upgrades to physically and Digital to Digital) will be able to upgrade to the respective next-gen version free of charge.
Avengers will support cross-generation play between PlayStation and Xbox consoles (PS5 owners can play with PS4, Xbox Series X with Xbox One). Players will also be able to transfer saves between current- and next-gen consoles.
The PlayStation 5 version will offer both an enhanced graphics mode and a high framerate mode at 60 FPS with dynamic 4K resolution. Gary Snethen, CTO at developer Crystal Dynamics, noted PS5's ultra-fast SSD will make for "nearly instant" load times in Avengers. "And as Iron Man flies through content-rich levels, higher resolution textures and mesh will stream in instantly, maintaining the highest possible quality all the way to the horizon," he added. Marvel's Avengers will first be released September 4 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC.
