Marvel's Avengers--All The Benefits Offered In The PS5 Version

Marvel's Avengers is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X, and on PS5 players can choose between enhanced graphics mode or high framerate mode.


Marvel's Avengers has been confirmed for PS5 and Xbox Series X with a free upgrade program, meaning that Iron Man and the gang will be making the jump to next-gen. Some further details about the PlayStation 5 version have come to light, and we now have a better idea of what benefits will be offered by this upgrade ahead of the upcoming Avengers War Table stream.

On the PlayStation Blog, and in a press release we received, various upgrades have been discussed. Next-gen versions will get faster load times, higher resolution, and superior textures, and Crystal Dynamics has also promised that the PS5 version will make use of the DualSense controller's haptic feedback and the system's spatial audio.

PS5 users will also be able to choose between two different modes: Enhanced Graphics Mode and High Framerate Mode. This means you can either play the game in 60FPS with a dynamic 4k resolution, or boost the graphics for "the highest image quality possible." The system's SSD will also allow for much faster texture load-in.

The PlayStation Blog post goes on to list other features. "The new (PS5) GPU allows us to increase our texture resolution, push a higher level of detail farther from the player, enhance our ambient occlusion, improve our anisotropic filtering and add a variety of new graphics features such as stochastic screen-space reflections with contact-aware sharpening."

The press release we were sent promised that details on Xbox Series X and PC specific features will be shared at a later date.

Marvel's Avengers will launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 4--here's our preorder guide. The PS5 and Xbox Series X release dates are unclear, as we're not yet sure of either console's release date.
