Prior to this trailer’s release, we got a different sort of rundown for the changes planned for Marvel’s Avengers’ next-gen version. Two charts, one for PlayStation and one for Xbox, showed what features the new version of the game would boast on the different consoles it’ll be played on soon. It’s been playable on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox X|S consoles since they launched through backwards compatibility and has benefited from the consoles’ native power levels till now, but come March 18th, we’ll see it finally take full advantage of the new devices.
For those who’ve been playing with friends that may not have upgraded to the new consoles yet, you won’t have to leave them behind when you upgrade your version of Marvel’s Avengers to the next-gen release. Cross-gen matchmaking is supported within whatever family of consoles you’re playing on, so you’ll still be able to play with PlayStation 4 owners if you have a PlayStation 5, for example.
This update was supposed to already be out by now, but the Crystal Dynamics team working on the game had to delay the update out of 2020 to give it more time to be worked on. Its new release date is March 18th, so expect the update to be available then if you’ve got one of the newer consoles.
