After spending a few months in closed beta, the teams at Nuverse and Second Dinner don't want to wait any longer to release Marvel Snap. The superheroic collectible card game popped up during Friday's Disney & Marvel Games Showcase at D23 2022 with a trailer offering a quick overview of what the game is and how it works. More importantly, it offered an official release date.
Marvel Snap will get its full release on Tuesday, October 18. This will be the full 1.0 version on both iOS and Android, though as Second Dinner stated from the beginning, the PC version that hits on the same day will be in an early access state.
Marvel Snap is a frantically paced two-player card game, the first from the Hearthstone veterans at Second Dinner since they exited Blizzard. Both players will take their turns simultaneously with the object being to control two out of three locations laid out on the board. The locations will all vary and affect play in different ways, requiring frequent shifts in strategy. Game-wide events are already underway, with the most recent one introducing S.W.O.R.D. and S.H.I.E.L.D., though not every idea has gone over well.
