Marvel's Avengers is an upcoming narrative-based, action-adventure video game developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montréal and published by Square Enix. Based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers, the game is inspired by the long-running comic book mythology and adaptations in other media. The game's main storyline takes place five years after A-Day, a celebratory day for the Avengers wherein a tragedy resulted in death and destruction, and the Avengers were blamed. The team is forced to reassemble to save the world from peril. The game features an online co-op mode, allowing players to assemble a team of heroes of their own. The playable characters include Steve Rogers / Captain America (Jeff Schine), Tony Stark / Iron Man (Nolan North), Bruce Banner / Hulk (Troy Baker), Thor (Travis Willingham), Natasha Romanova / Black Widow (Laura Bailey), and Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel (Sandra Saad).
Marvel’s Avengers is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X with improvements tailored explicitly on the next-gen platforms. Among those, we can find two different graphics modes that have currently only been confirmed on PlayStation 5, as revealed in a press release.


The first mode will offer “the highest image quality possible” with “extra graphics features” that have not been disclosed yet. The second mode “targets 60fps with dynamic 4K resolution,” to grant the “most fluid gameplay experience possible.”


Square Enix has also announced that Marvel’s Avengers players on PS4 and Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the PS5 or Xbox Series X version at no additional cost, when those next-gen versions arrive. Anyone who buys Marvel’s Avengers on current-gen consoles will receive a free copy on PS5 or Xbox Series X. Not only that, players will also be able to carry over their save files and progression across generations. Marvel’s Avengers will also support cross-generation multiplayer within the same console family. 

The introduction of an ultra-high speed SSD with lightning fast loading speed is a transformative improvement in consoles that will reduce load times down to one or two seconds and enable real-time streaming of massive worlds at ridiculously fast speeds. Without any optimization work, the loading and streaming of Marvel’s Avengers improved by an order of magnitude on PS5. When optimization is complete, loading content will be nearly instant, allowing players to seamlessly jump into action. The new PS5 DualSense controller is going to offer advanced haptics and resistance triggers, and the console itself will be looking to offer enhanced 3D audio and new platform features that will allow you to jump straight into the action.
