The next generation of gaming consoles has arrived, and an enhanced experience of Marvel’s Avengers already await you! Thanks to backwards compatibility, those who have the PlayStation®5 and the Xbox Series X|S were able to play the PS4 and Xbox One versions and enjoyed the improved framerate and speed the new consoles provide.
Now, with the official release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Marvel’s Avengers happening on March 18, there are a number of new features to highlight that will bring an upgraded experience you won’t want to miss out on.
Players who own the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game will be able to upgrade to the full next-gen version at no additional cost!* The PS5 supports Checkerboard 4K for the PS4 version on the PS5. The Xbox One on Series X|S supports Native 4K on Series X, and 1440p on Series S. Owners of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game can continue playing on next-gen platforms to take advantage of their powerful hardware, be it via inserting a physical disk or re-downloading the game. You can continue your journey on your new next-gen console by transferring your save files and data from your previous-gen console to pick up right where you left off.
Have friends who are choosing to remain on the previous consoles? No problem—cross-gen matchmaking has you covered. PS5™ players will be able to play with their friends on PS4™, and Xbox Series X|S players can connect with their friends on Xbox One. Squad up with your respective PlayStation or Xbox teammates and bring the fight to AIM! A team that fights together stays together.
The PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will boast speedy loading times to get you into the action as fast as possible. Go from the War Table right into your location or mission of choice, be it Substation Zero hidden in the humid and verdant Pacific Northwest or a search for an AIM-guarded SHIELD bunker in the frigid snows of Siberia. AIM won’t even get a chance to regroup before you’re back on their doorstep ready to take them down. Visuals Marvel’s Avengers has a beautiful world filled with exquisite detail, and with the power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S channeling directly into improved Heroics, destruction, graphical fidelity, and framerate, you won’t be missing any of it. All the action will load in and refresh seamlessly for combat and exploration that’s free of interruption. The high-res textures add that level of exciting, cinematic realism to Heroics, making the blinding torrent of Thor’s lightning strikes and the burning beams of Iron Man’s repulsor blasts feel truly in your hands. We’re excited to herald in the next generation of consoles on Marvel’s Avengers for the ultimate Super Hero gameplay experience!
