Marvel’s Avengers Arrives on Next-Gen Consoles and Operation: Hawkeye - Future Imperfect Is Now Available
But those aren’t the only big updates to the game!
For those looking to join up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Marvel’s Avengers is now available on the PlayStation5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. Players who own the PlayStation4 or Xbox One version of the game can upgrade to the full next-gen version at no additional cost and transfer their saved game to keep their progress.
In addition, the game’s second post-launch Operation, Marvel’s Avengers Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect is out now, featuring a new playable Super Hero for the game: Clint Barton, also known as Hawkeye, the unmatched archer with unerring precision.
Clint Barton brings his unique talents to the game at no cost to owners of the core game on all platforms. In addition to a new playable Super Hero and the new chapter in the game’s ongoing Avengers Initiative story, Marvel’s Avengers Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect also introduces a powerful new villain: Maestro, a version of the Hulk driven mad in an apocalyptic future with Bruce Banner’s brains and Hulk’s strengths and abilities. Watch the release trailer for Future Imperfect below!
Future Imperfect’s story picks up in the wake of Clint Barton’s protégé Kate Bishop’s Operation, Taking AIM, and can be played solo or with up to three friends to deliver the ultimate Super Hero experience. Players will learn more about Hawkeye’s quest to find Nick Fury, leader of SHIELD, who he believed could help stop the rise of AIM. What he uncovered instead was a dangerous new weapon being built by Scientist Supreme Monica Rappaccini that could change the fate of humanity. Along the way, Clint finds himself wrapped up in a time-bending experiment, journeying to a future Earth destroyed by cosmic forces and inhabited by Maestro, an older, twisted version of Hulk who is as smart as he is strong.

In addition to the new playable Super Hero, villain, and story content, the latest update to Marvel’s Avengers brings with it two new features: Reassemble Campaign Replay and an entirely new customizable HARM Room. Reassemble Campaign Replay, a frequently requested addition from fans, will allow players to reset their Reassemble campaign progress and play the content again from the beginning while preserving their Hero progression. The new customizable HARM Room allows players to tailor their experience by choosing the number and type of enemies they face, environmental hazards, and combat bonuses to push their skills to the limit.
On top of that, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S version of Marvel’s Avengers offers higher framerates and enhanced visuals compared to current generation of consoles at up to 4K resolution on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and 1440p for Xbox Series S. 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 armor destruction, and other enhancements that leverage the full might of these new consoles to make gamers truly feel like a Super Hero.
Players can transfer their profiles and save games to next-gen consoles to continue the action right where they left off. In addition, cross-gen play is supported so PS5™ players can connect and play with their friends on PS4™ and Xbox Series X|S players can connect with their friends on Xbox One.
