Regular readers will know that I am pretty deep into that Marvel Snap (Free) fever. It’s just such a perfect overlap of fan service and well thought-out mechanics that I can’t stop playing. I ran into someone who had Agatha Harkness in their deck the other day, and let me tell you, that was hilarious and awesome. Cough. Anyway. The nice folks at Second Dinner have shared their immediate roadmap for the game, and I thought I’d go ahead and share that with you. Let’s have a look, shall we?
You probably don’t need me to walk you through all of that. There’s a picture right there. But just in case, let’s look at some highlights. In the “Coming Soon” category, the big deal is obviously being able to battle versus friends. I think this will be something I use a lot, so I am glad to see it. Name change isn’t a feature people will use a lot, but those who need it will be happy it’s there. Artist credits, great. More language support, fantastic. Infinity Split Mod Details, I need more details.
The “In Development” stuff includes an improved UI for PC users, a Smart Deck feature that will help you fill out your deck builds, an Unranked Mode where you can clear missions without worrying about losing ranks or cubes, and some new competitive modes that details are scarce on at the moment.
Presumably far-off is the “In Concept” stuff. Social elements like Guilds and Leaderboards, extra collectibles like emotes and emojis, Mythic variants (presumably to generate a bit of money which is fine), Booster magnets to help you get the Boosters you want, and a few other things. Yes, that all sounds nice.
Anyway, that’s just a little peek at what is coming down the line for Marvel Snap. It’s a game I hope goes on for a long time, and if it’s managed as carefully in the future as it has been up until now, I think we’ll be playing it for years to come. Is there anything you’d like to see added to the game? Feel free to comment with your ideas below, I think Ben Brode sometimes reads this site. Right, Ben? Right?!
