Square Enix Offering Free Next-Gen Upgrade for 'Marvel's Avengers'

A narrative-based, action-adventure game developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal published by Square Enix, playable characters will include Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Black Widow, and Ms. Marvel. What's more, players who own it on the PS4 will get the next-gen version of the game for free when the console launches in Holiday 2020.

Gary Snethen, CTO at developer Crystal Dynamics, noted Avengers will make use of PS5's ultra-fast SSD, making for "nearly instant" load times. To give a better idea of what this looks like, he shared new screenshots of Marvel's Avengers running on PS5.

MARVEL's Avengers will also support cross-platform gameplay between the PlayStation 4 and the upcoming PlayStation 5, so players will be able to keep facing Avengers-level threats with their friends - regardless if their friends haven't upgraded to a PlayStation 5 just yet.

Avengers will also take advantage of the DualSense controller's haptic feedback and resistance triggers, as well as the PS5's 3D audio capabilities.

EA suggests you should expect more life-like player movements, rich weather detail and the "most authentic character behaviors ever seen in sports video games". Specific updates for the Xbox Series X version have not yet been announced, but more details are set to follow.

Although we didn't get an official reveal trailer for Federation Internationale de Football Association 21 during EA Play Live, EA has shared more about the game, including its launch date. The next-gen version of the game is being developed with improved texture resolution, increased draw distance, enhanced ambient occlusion, and a "variety of new graphics features". Both physical and digital copies of the game are eligible, but you'll need to opt for the latter to get an upgrade on a discless version of a next-gen console.

On PlayStation 5, Marvel's Avengers will provide improved graphics mode for the highest image quality possible, along with a high framerate mode that will run at 60 FPS with vibrant 4K resolution.

Anyone who transfers saves to next-gen consoles will be able to transfer their player profiles and progress to resume right where they left off.
