Marvel Avengers has been confirmed for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which isn’t particularly surprising. As announced via the Playstation Blog, the current-gen version of the game will be able to be upgraded to the next-gen version at no additional cost, for both the Playstation 4 to Playstation 5, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X. Likewise, save data for the games will also carry over. There will be cross-gen play, so PS5 players will be able to play with PS4 players, and Xbox Series X players with Xbox One.
According to Gary Snethen, Chief Technology Officer of Crystal Dynamics,
If you’re a technophile like me, you enjoy having a bit of choice in how you leverage your cutting-edge console’s capability. As gamers, we sometimes want every ounce of power put into extra graphics features to achieve the highest image quality possible. For this, Marvel’s Avengers will offer an enhanced graphics mode on PS5. At other times, we want the most fluid gameplay experience possible. For that, Marvel’s Avengers will offer a high framerate mode on PS5, which targets 60 FPS with dynamic 4K resolution.
The PS5 version is also promised to feature “extremely fast load times, boosted resolution and fidelity, improved texturing and armor destruction, ray tracing, and more”, along with fully utilizing the solid state drive, DualSense wireless controller haptics and spatial 3D audio.
In any case, all these are all features meant for the PS5 edition of Marvel Avengers, with details on the Xbox Series X one to be coming up soon.
