The brand new Avengers game coming from Square Enix will apparently have separate next-gen versions. However, owners of PlayStation 5 will have to choose between the graphics and frame rate. Square Enix has confirmed that Marvel’s Avengers will be present on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X this Christmas. However, you won’t have to worry if you want to buy the current-gen versions until Christmas. You will be able to use the same saves and player profiles, which means that you won’t lose any of your progress. The company will make sure that the game will not be interrupted when it will make its appearance on the next-gen consoles.
They have also confirmed the presence of cross-gen play, which means that those of you who own a PlayStation 4 will be able to play with your PlayStation 5 and Xbox One friends. However, up until now, we haven’t heard anything about the usual cross–play.
Even if Microsoft has the Smart Delivery service for the first party titles, it actually comes down to individual publishers when they have to handle the games for the next-gen upgrades. Electronic Arts had much more restrictive upgrade offers. However, they went easier on that one. Square Enix hasn’t talked about any restrictions for Avengers. However, we’re waiting to see if this situation is available for the other next-gen titles as well.
Also, Square Enix has a marketing deal with Sony, which means that they’re only talking about the PlayStation 5 version of the game right now. Apparently, it will have “extremely fast load times, boosted resolution and fidelity, improved texturing and armor destruction, ray-tracing, and more.”
You will have to choose if you want to play in Enhanced Graphics Mode or High Framerate Mode. This means that you won’t be able to have all the enhancements at once.
