Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales won’t be the only Marvel Comics adventure you’ll be able to enjoy on your PlayStation 5 later this year. Announced today via the PlayStation blog, those who purchase the PlayStation 4 version of Marvel’s Avengers will be able to continue to enjoy the game on PlayStation 5 via a free upgrade. From Gary Snethen, Chief Technology Officer at Marvel’s Avengers developer Crystal Dynamics:
“PS5 greatly lifts the performance and graphics bar for consoles. The new 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.
…Marvel’s Avengers will offer a high framerate mode on PS5, which targets 60 FPS with dynamic 4K resolution.”
Marvel’s Avengers is slated to arrive September 4th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC platforms.
