Marvel Snap Battle Mode release date

We finally know the exact date that Battle Mode will be coming to Marvel Snap.


The level of social interaction through Marvel Snap is about to increase with the release of Battle Mode. The upcoming mode will allow players to take on their friends directly instead of being forced to play random internet strangers all the time. We knew that Battle Mode was coming soon, but now we have an exact release date.

Battle Mode will be released on January 31, 2023, according to a post on the Marvel Snap website. This mode arrives at the same time as a Series Drop that sees various cards move from a higher series to a lower one, making them more obtainable to players. The post is quick to note, however, that any last-minute snags could see the planned release date for Battle Mode and the game’s first ever Series Drop pushed back a bit.

Once Battle Mode is live it will allow two players play multiple games against each other using the same decks. You’ll use a code to match against someone specific, and each player will start with 10 health. The loser of each game will lose health equal to the value of the cube, and the first player to run out of health will lose the head-to-head matchup. This means that each instance of Battle Mode will take at least two games since players can’t lose more than eight health per game. If nobody snaps, Battle Mode could last between five and nine games.

Battle Mode can’t come soon enough. The staff here at Shacknews are still heavily invested in Marvel Snap, sharing our best decks and screenshots of our crazy experiences. Being able to use Battle Mode to test each other is either going to bring us all closer together or create some hefty rifts.

      I don't have any of those 4 cards and don't even get what it means they are going from series 4 to 3. They become more obtainable? I'm starting to play less because I just don't get new cards quick enough

      Pro Bundle for 149.99 though
