In its latest War Table stream, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal announced that Marvel’s Avengers would be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on March 18th. Its launch coincides with the release of Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect, which sees Clint Barton added to the game. In the meantime, check out how the current-gen version will look in the story trailer below.
Marvel’s Avengers will see enhanced visuals and an improved frame rate on the newer consoles. While the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions will run at up to 4K resolution, the Xbox Series S will run at 1440p resolution. Other features include high-resolution models and textures, farther draw distance, and better armor destruction.
Cross-gen platform play will also be supported allowing PS4 and PS5 players to play together while those on Xbox One can matchmake with Xbox Series X/S players. Cross-gen saves are also supported along with the PS5 DualSense’s haptic feedback. Best of all, current owners can upgrade to the newer console versions for free.
