Crystal Dynamics has revealed that the PlayStation 5 version of Marvel's Avengers will release on 18th March 2021 alongside the free Hawkeye expansion. Upgrading to the current-gen version will be free for pre-existing PlayStation 4 owners, and the second superhero to be added to the game after launch won't cost anything either. The latest War Table livestream from Square Enix goes into detail about both these important milestones for Marvel's Avengers, with all gameplay footage from a PS5. Check it out above.

Over on the PlayStation Blog, Leyla Karasuma of Crystal Dynamics speaks to what Clint Barton brings to the loot-based title as well as touching on his moveset. "In Future Imperfect, a storyline inspired by Marvel Comics’ Old Man Hawkeye series and the Hawkeye (2012) “My Life as a Weapon” storyline, you will be taking Clint on a perilous journey to a future Earth and stepping into a new biome known as the Wasteland to find the missing Nick Fury, come face-to-face with the villain Maestro, and save the world. Did we mention his canine pal Lucky will also be featured in this Operation?"

As previously confirmed, Marvel's Avengers will offer two different graphical modes on PS5. One targets 60 frames-per-second at a dynamic 4K resolution, while the other bumps up the visuals even more. Load times are also said to be much shorter on Sony's new machine.
