What you can expect on the first day of the PS5 release!

Marvel's Avengers

True Believers, we’ve been elated over the news of the upcoming arrival of the PlayStation 5 and now we’ve got more exciting news for when the PS5 debuts – the highly-anticipated Marvel’s Avengers, which makes its heroic debut on September 4, will be available on PlayStation 5 on Day One with enhancements!

What Does This Mean Exactly?

The hard-working folks over at Crystal Dynamics have been working tirelessly to create a PS5 version of Marvel’s Avengers that pushes Foundation, their propriety game engine, to the limits on the PS5.

What Can You Expect?

  • Lifts in performance and fidelity
  • Increased texture resolution
  • A higher level of detail throughout the game
  • Enhanced ambient occlusion
  • Improved anisotropic filtering
  • Added variety of new graphics-based features such as stochastic screen-space reflections with contact-aware sharpening

What Does This Mean for Marvel’s Avengers?

The PS5 allows Marvel’s Avengers to not only offer enhanced graphics, but also fluid gameplay experience, thanks to the high framerate mode on the PS5, which targets 60 FPS with dynamic 4K resolution.

In addition, the ultra-high speed SSD with lightning fast load speeds will make loading content from Marvel’s Avengers nearly instant, allowing players to seamlessly jump into missions anywhere in the game world. In simpler terms, when Iron Man flies through content-rich levels, the higher resolution textures and mesh will stream instantly, allowing for the highest possible quality all the way to the horizon.

We can’t wait to get hands-on and feel how the PS5 DualSense controller, which offers advanced haptics and resistance triggers, along with the enhanced 3D audio and new platform features takes the Marvel’s Avengers experience to the next level.

What Else Do We Need to Know?
