The developers behind Marvel’s Avengers, also lengthily discussed the PS5 version of the game in a blogpost done in conjunction with Playstation. The post revealed that the PS5 version of the Avengers game will offer two different modes to cater to different players. The first mode will be an enhanced graphics mode with the second being a high framerate mode that will target 60 frames per second. No announcements were made for the different modes regarding the Xbox Series X.

Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
