The CTO of Crystal Dynamic, Gary Snethen, explained what this would mean for the Marvel’s Avengers game, discussing all the exciting features that come with the new upgraded console.

Snethen’s team has been working for some time to push the limits of their proprietary game engine – Foundation in tandem with the PS5 development kit to elevate the gaming experience. The new-gen version of Marvel’s Avengers will fully leverage PS5’s improved performance and graphic capabilities to deliver some fantastic gameplay enhancements.

Hinting at some of the graphical alterations, Snethen disclosed that the new GPU in PS5 had enabled them to significantly increasing the bar when it comes to the graphics of the game.

Perhaps even more exciting than the graphical enhancements is PS5’s high-speed SSD fit for ultra-fast loading speeds. This addition is undoubtedly a game-changer for new-gen consoles and will successfully reduce loading time by a very high magnitude. This means players will now be able to navigate massive in-game worlds, including the Marvel’s Avengers,  in the blink of an eye.

If all that wasn’t exciting enough, the PS5 also comes with a DualSense controller and enhanced 3D audio that is also intelligently utilized to take your gaming experience to the next level.
