Marvel Snap releases a developer update highlighting the newest additions from the new season, Savage Land, along with new features.

Marvel Snap developer Second Dinner has just released an update about the game’s new Savage Land season. Fans can get a detailed look at all the fresh new features and content that come along with the latest season.

Marvel Snap opens 2023 with the Savage Land season, fresh off the heels of the recent Power Cosmic season and Winterverse event. With each season introducing new cards, locations, card backs, and titles, many gamers are now awaiting the details and dates on which the aforementioned items will be released throughout January.

As seen from a recent Marvel Snap YouTube video, several new cards and locations inspired by the Savage Land have made their way to the game. Cards such as Sauron, Shanna the She-Devil, Zabu, and Shadow King are among those that will make their in-game debut, along with special Alex Horley-made variants of other existing characters. Meanwhile, the Rickety Bridge, Altar of Death, Eternity Range, Plunder Castle, and the Collapsed Mine were also announced, adding more variety to the available locations within Marvel Snap.

While the update focuses on in-game content tied to this latest season’s theme, new gameplay modes were also teased during the video. Particulars for the previously announced Battle Mode for Marvel Snap were discussed, with the mechanics explained by Second Dinner’s Kent-Erik Hagman. As mentioned, Battle Mode matches will be unranked and will let players go head-to-head in a race to deplete the opponent’s assigned 10 HP. Health damage is then subtracted by the number of cubes up for grabs per match.

Ever since a Marvel Snap datamine revealed the Savage Land season in December 2022, players have been preparing and rebuilding their deck with the intent of maximizing the use of the new Zabu card in their strategy. With its Ongoing ability to make 4-cost cards cost 2 less, this is definitely a big game-changer, perhaps one that might be too overpowering as with the recently released Silver Surfer card. The Shadow King card has huge potential to be a counter to characters whose energies increase, such as Sunspot or Angela. The new locations also seem fascinating, with the Altar of Death destroying played cards in exchange for +2 energy, which is a highly useful tactic for those looking to unload high-cost cards early in the game.

The news regarding Battle Mode seems to be the biggest development yet, even with no date incoming yet. Gamers have long yearned to be able to play Marvel Snap and test out card combos and strategies between friends. While no rewards are earned within the mode, the competitive nature of the game, coupled with it being risk-free should help give rise to more players looking to improve their card battling skills. Hopefully, the new game mode rolls out sooner than later along with the other announced additions, but everything still looks promising as shared by the developers.

Marvel Snap is available now for Mobile and PC.
