Marvel's Avengers Coming to Next Gen Consoles

Square Enix confirmed today that Marvel’s Avengers will launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox One X this Holiday season. The highly anticipated action game is first releasing for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia on September 4.

For gamers who plan on picking up a next-gen console but don’t want to wait on Marvel’s Avengers, you’ll be able to upgrade to the next-gen version for free. The only catch is the upgrade must be from PlayStation 4 to 5 or from Xbox One to Xbox One X. The upgraded versions will also feature cross-gen play, so PS5 users can play with PS4 friends, and likewise with the Xbox One X.

On next-gen consoles players will enjoy faster load times thanks to the solid state drive, as well as improved texturing, ray tracing, 3D audio, and increased resolution and overall graphical fidelity. Players will be able to choose between enhanced graphics mode or high framerate mode.

Square Enix is hosting a Marvel’s Avengers War Table stream tomorrow, June 24, at 10 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern at the official Avengers website. The stream will showcase new gameplay content, including co-op.

Marvel’s Avengers will release on September 4 on current hardware, and later this Holiday season on PlayStation 5 and Xbox One X. It is currently pending a rating from the ESRB.
