Marvel's Avengers Getting PS5 and Xbox Series X Upgrades On March 18

Marvel's Avengers will get its next-gen upgrade next month alongside the arrival of Clint Barton, also known as Hawkeye.

The big PS5 and Xbox Series S/X upgrade was previously delayed (alongside Hawkeye), but will be free for all owners of the game on last-gen systems with full save game functionality.

While the Xbox Series S will be limited to 1440p, the PS5 and Series X versions will run at up to 4K.

Players can prioritise frame rate or resolution, the former targeting 60 FPS.

The best part? Square Enix says that the new console's SSD storage will shrink the game's glacial loading times.

"The game utilizes the consoles’ built-in SSD for dramatically faster loading and streaming times and takes advantage of their graphics power and memory to deliver higher-resolution textures, farther draw distances for high-resolution models, improved heroics and armour destruction, and other enhancements that leverage the full might of these new consoles to make gamers truly feel like a Super Hero," a press release reads.

Players can still play alongside their friends on previous generation consoles, too, with cross-generation play enabled – although there's still no cross-platform play between console manufacturers and PC.

Marvel's Avengers is expected to add characters as free DLC, with Black Panther rumoured to be the next addition to its roster after Barton. We've got everything you need to know here.
