Square Enix has announced it will release Marvel's Avengers on Xbox Series X when it launches this holiday season.

The game will still be arriving on current-generation platforms this September. Any players who purchase the game on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade to the next-generation version at no additional cost.

Players making the transition from Xbox One to Xbox Series X will also be able to transfer their profiles and progression across - so they can pick up right where they left off. Cross-play will be included as well, allowing Xbox Series X players to team up with Xbox One players.

The next-gen version is said to feature "extremely fast load times, boosted resolution and fidelity, improved texturing and armor destruction, ray tracing, and more." Square Enix will reveal additional Xbox Series X specific features for Marvel's Avengers at a later time, and will also be showcasing new gameplay and co-op footage of the game in its "War Table" YouTube stream tomorrow.
