Marvel’s Avengers should have ridiculous levels of hype surrounding it, but there appears to be more anxiety and caution thanks to exclusive deals like Spider-Man. Although Square Enix have stressed that you can play on your own, those who are into multiplayer keep asking: does the Marvel’s Avengers game have crossplay? Here you’ll discover everything you must know including the confirmation of cross-gen multiplayer and progression.
While Marvel’s Avengers launches in a matter of days, the game will be supported for many years with post-launch DLC characters who will each receive a $10 Battle Pass. Some of the reportedly leaked post-launch characters include She-Hulk and Kate Bishop, and we already know that Hawkeye will be added to the roster.
However, before you’re even able to play the game in its launch state, below you’ll discover if it has crossplay.
Will the Marvel’s Avengers game have crossplay?
No, the Marvel’s Avengers game will not have crossplay or cross platform multiplayer at launch.
Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers game does not have crossplay meaning you will only be able to enjoy multiplayer with friends on the same system.
Although this is a bummer, it’s possible that the feature could be added in the future.
While Square Enix haven’t explicitly outlined any plans to add cross platform multiplayer, the game will be supported for many years after its launch, and crossplay has been added to other games via updates such as Dead By Daylight.
This doesn’t mean that Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics will unquestionably follow the trend established by others, but there is good news in the form of confirmed cross-gen multiplayer.
Marvel’s Avengers cross save and multiplayer
Square Enix have confirmed cross-gen save and multiplayer for the Marvel’s Avengers game.
Cross-gen save, progression, and multiplayer for the Marvel’s Avengers game means PS4 users will be able to play with mates who own a PS5.
Those who own the game on PS4 or Xbox One will be eligible for a free upgrade when Sony and Microsoft’s next-gen systems launch, and you’ll be able to play with people who own a next-gen system even if you don’t.
If you’re unsure about buying the game on current consoles despite the free upgrade, you needn’t be as you will be able to transfer your save and progression to either the PS5 or Xbox Series X. You’ll be able to pick up right where you left off with your player profile.
It’s important to note that the cross-gen multiplayer is only possible between PS4 and PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. This means Microsoft and Sony loyalists still won’t be able to team up.
