With the introduction of Battle Mode, the first Series Drop, and the usual assortment of balancing adjustments to keep things interesting, Marvel Snap’s January 31 update is expected to upend things. So review our summary below before the full patch notes are released.
Since the recent Marvel Snap update, which introduced new Artist Credits and thankfully nerfed the more imposing selections like Leader and Aero, 21 days have passed. The following significant fix will soon be released as Second Dinner’s programmers prepare for the most significant update.
Players will be able to engage in head-to-head combat in Battle Mode, and the first Series Drop will take place when a few exceedingly rare cards gradually flow through the gaming system and become more accessible. Therefore, please take advantage of our thorough explanation of all there is to know about Marvel Snap’s January 31 patch to stay ahead of the game’s much-anticipated update.
The Arrival of Battle Mode in Marvel Snap
Battle Mode is the update’s main feature that goes live on January 31. Players from all over the world will be able to try out the mode for the first time when the patch goes live after being teased from the start, with the first developer livestream even showing it in action.
Players can immediately compete against friends and well-known streams and even enter early tournaments to demonstrate their prowess through a straightforward “Battle Code” sharing system. Because Ben Brode verified that cross-region matchmaking will be available straight now, we know the game mode will function globally.
Both players receive 10 Health in total during the battle mode. The aim is Health rather than stealing Cubes as part of the process. The objective of playing consecutive games is to reduce your opponent’s Health. Which can be done more quickly by snapping early and causing more damage with a win.
First Series Drop from Marvel Snap on January 31 Update
Marvel Snap’s first Series Drop is also a part of the January 31 release. Obtaining these unique additions is difficult because all new cards are divided into Series 3, Series 4, or Series 5. The harder they are to obtain, whether through pure chance or a mountain of Collector’s Tokens, the higher the Series.
To combat this practice head-on in the future, Second Dinner will move several well-liked cards into the lower Series, giving players a better chance to complete their decks. On January 31, the first of these Series Drops will be released. It will feature nine cards that are all moving down a rung. Check out how each card’s rarity changes below:
- Series 5 cards that will move to Series 4:
- Black Panther
- Series 4 cards that will move to Series 3:
- Luke Cage
- Absorbing Man
Early balancing adjustments in the Marvel Snap patch of January 31
And last but not slightest, significant balance adjustments for Marvel Snap. Although the exact details of the January 31 patch have not yet been revealed, we are aware of two particular cards that will remain unchanged for the time being.
The two most recent season pass cards, Silver Surfer and Zabu are still the same as part of the new update. They only narrowly missed the timeframe because they “began overperforming” immediately after developers locked in this January 31 update. There is good news for those hoping to see these potent cards weakened.
Principal Game Designer Glenn Jones stated on Twitter, “we can alter the balance without a new patch, and we are going to adjust those cards in about a week.”
