Marvel recently announced a new game for mobile and PC platforms. The entertainment company is describing it as a card game that will be both “fast-paced” and “adrenaline-pumping”. Marvel Snap will be a collectible card game. It is currently under development at Second Dinner, and the team is reportedly led by Hearthstone’s director. The game will include all Marvel multiverses, including both heroes and villains in this game. Although we do not have a release date or window yet, the game will launch on iOS, Android, and Windows platforms.
To better explain what Second Dinner’s Marvel Snap is, we’ll say it’s a game that permits players to assemble their dream team. This team is not limited to just the Avengers—you can easily have Thor and Loki fighting on the same side. The game allows pairing any hero or villain into your dream team.
What is the Current Status of Marvel Snap?
Currently, Marvel Snap is in a closed beta mode on Android devices. This status started on May 19, 2022, and is expected to last for some time as the developers fine-tune their title. The developers are planning to continue this closed beta beyond the initial launch of the game to test higher player counts, regions, and platforms in the game. Interested players can complete a Marvel Snap Android survey to participate in the beta.
At launch, the game will come with support for 13 different languages and 150 cards to collect. New cards will be added to the game every month. The game will also have a season system. Recently, Marvel Entertainment also sent out a tweet announcing the game to the masses. More information is on Marvel Snap’s website.
How to Play Marvel Snap?
Marvel Snap will come with an innovative gameplay system. Every player will have a deck of 12 cards at the start of a game. Matches will be fought in a one-to-one model. Each match will last for 3 minutes, with no waiting periods for either player. Players can lay their cards as they wish. Their cards will unleash random locations depending on the MCU lore. Some examples include Knowhere, Sinister London, and Wakanda.
Each location will create beneficial or challenging situations for both the player and the opponents. The game will have over 50 locations at launch, and any can be spawned randomly during the game. At the end of the game, players are awarded Cosmic Cubes. If players are confident they will win, they also can choose to double the number of these Cubes that can be won at the beginning of the game. However, if they lose the game, they will lose all those they selected when starting.
Overall, Marvel Snap looks like an interesting game to watch out for in the upcoming months as it makes its way to Android, iOS, and PC.
