Marvel’s Avengers players will get a free upgrade to next-gen on their respective platform, publisher Square Enix announced. Anyone who purchases a copy of Marvel’s Avengers, physically or digitally, will get upgraded from PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X if they purchase the new consoles.
In a PlayStation blog post, Gary Snethen, chief technology officer of developer Crystal Dynamics, said that the team has been working on a PS5 enhanced version of the game for some time, utilizing the power of the new console to offer a high frame rate mode that targets 60 fps and dynamic 4K resolution.
Marvel’s Avengers will also take advantage of the PS5’s high-speed SSD, reducing load times to just a few seconds and making it nearly instant once the game has been optimized for it. No details specific to the Xbox Series X version of the game have been released.
