Superhero fans now have an official release date for the Marvel’s Avengers next-gen port.

The secret’s out: Marvel’s Avengers is coming soon to a next-generation console near you. No longer will fans have to suffer with loading screens, lower-resolution textures, unfortunate draw distance detail and models. Now, they can truly feel like the hero they’re playing on-screen.

Marvel’s Avengers Next-Gen Release Date

Players can get their hands on Marvel’s Avengers for the Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 5 on Mar. 18, 2021.

The date was revealed during the War Room broadcast featuring Square Enix and Crystal Dynamix. According to the team, these re-releases will feature an enhanced frame rate, fittingly enhanced visuals, faster loading times, higher resolution textures, models, and more. It’s clear they aren’t shying away from the impressive capability of the latest hardware.

Additionally, the launch will also coincide with the official release of the Operation: Hawkeye—Imperfect Future DLC.

Details regarding the need to re-purchase the game, cross-play, or progression transfer were revealed a few moments later. According to Square Enix, players can transfer all the profiles and saved data regarding Marvel’s Avengers at no additional cost to them and pick up right where they left off. Cross-play among all five recent machines is supported, including between next-gen and previous-gen.

More information about the next-gen release and the upcoming DLC can be found on Square Enix’s news tab on their website.
