Marvel Snap, the hit digital card game from developer Second Dinner Studios, has finally added the highly anticipated Battle Mode, allowing friends to test their skills with each other. Marvel Snap is available on PC, iOS and Android. Following the new patch notes, Marvel Snap noted some of the key changes that fans should consider before jumping into the new mode:
Digital card games lend themselves to satisfying solo gameplay, and mobile games in particular are ideal for passing the time now and then. But any card game battler deserves a competitive mode. It was always rather odd that Marvel Snap didn’t include the feature to begin with, and now that it’s finally here, it seems the devs successfully adjusted certain features to smooth over the new mode.
Asking players to complete a tutorial and reach Rank 10 should help balance out the pool at first, and denying the ability to change decks will also feel more consistent, both thematically and mechanically. It’s unclear if raising the stakes will balance well, since it’ll put more emphasis on skill gaps, but at least the game will probably be over quickly if you find yourself outmatched.
There are some known issues for Battle Mode in today’s patch, and most of them will trigger when the player disconnects from a match. While some are minor, there are very serious concerns, which break the game expiration timer and so forth.
As such, it may be best to avoid that until the devs get things up and running. The last update was earlier this month, so the wait shouldn’t be long. In the meantime, a few pesky bugs that were lingering have also been resolved.
Adding Battle Mode is sure to encourage newcomers to join in, attracting audiences that are more interested in competitive gameplay, no matter how “friendy” the devs try to keep it.
