Marvel's Avengers PS5 version will feature "improved destruction" and more

By Heidi Nicholas,
The Marvel's Avengers team have showcased the "next-gen capabilities" of the PS5 version of the game with a new trailer, and say it will be the "definitive superhero experience of Marvel's Avengers."


The PS5 version launches in a few weeks on March 18th. It will feature enhanced visuals, better frame rates, and "improved destruction," which will make Hulk's smashes bigger and improve unique Heroics. The PS5 version will also feature cross-gen multiplayer and run at 4K 60FPS. A free next-gen upgrade will be available to everyone who already owns the game, and your progress and player profile will carry across.

March 18th also sees the start of Chapter 2 of Season One, with Operation: Hawkeye - Future Imperfect as the second part of the Hawkeyes' Story Arc. The March 18th update will also bring changes to how you level up, as well as a cosmetics rework. The amount of XP required to reach level 50 will be increased, meaning it will take longer to reach higher levels. We still have a few weeks until March 18th, so there is a good chance we'll get a Marvel's Avengers War Table stream or developer update with more details on those next-gen features, and hopefully some info on whether there will be a separate PS5 Trophy list. We'll update you when we hear more.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
