Marvel’s Avengers is coming to PlayStation 5, Crystal Dynamics has confirmed. If you purchase the PS4 version of the game, you can get it free of charge on PS5. This applies to both digital and physical copies.
The company hasn’t just confirmed it will be available on the next-gen consoles either. In a recent blog post, Gary Snethen – Chief Technology Officer at Crystal Dynamics – has revealed how Marvel’s Avengers will take full advantage of what PlayStation 5 has to offer.
Marvel’s Avengers PS5 Release Date
Marvel’s Avengers will be available on PS5 as soon as the console launches, which is currently scheduled for Holiday 2020.
This new title is also coming to PS4 and Xbox One on September 4, 2020. What’s even better is that PS5 players can also play online with those on PS4.
How Marvel’s Avengers is Taking Advantage of PlayStation 5
Marvel’s Avengers will feature enhanced ambient occlusion and texture resolution on PlayStation 5, thanks to its GPU.
This game offers two main modes if you play on next-gen, enhanced graphics and high framerate. With this in mind, you will be able to play Marvel’s Avengers in 60 FPS with dynamic 4K resolution.
While the PlayStation 5’s ultra-high-speed SSD offers lightning-fast load speeds, this will also help to reduce load times down to one or two seconds.
This also will “enable real-time streaming of massive worlds at ridiculously fast speeds,” Snethen says.
This game will also take full advantage of the brand new DualSense, including the controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
Unfortunately, Snethen has not specified exactly how, but the controller’s resistance triggers are expected to have a major effect on weaponry in particular.
Last but not least, the PlayStation 5’s 3D audio should help players feel more immersed.
