Marvel SNAP announces its next season, The Power Cosmic, along with a slew of updates including a new currency for the fresh Token Shop.
Marvel SNAP dropped an electrifying video to introduce its next season, The Power Cosmic. Arriving sometime in December, the update will introduce new cards, variants and the ability for players to purchase specific cards in the “Token Shop.”
The trailer is hosted by Ben Brode, Chief Development Officer at Second Dinner Studios. The designer guides fans through all the upcoming additions, including the new Silver Surfer card. Arguably his biggest announcement is the creation of an in-game Token Shop, along with a new currency, “Collector’s Tokens.” These can be used to purchase specific cards, hopefully alleviating some fans’ frustration with the current random system. “Thank you so much for playing Marvel SNAP! We’ve had such an incredible launch!” Brode enthuses. “It’s only been a little over a month, but it’s been so much fun!”
“Starting at Collection Level 500 you’ll start to earn Collector’s Tokens,” Brode explains. “And you can take those tokens over to the Token Shop which rotates every eight hours with a card that you don’t have from Series 3, and when you see that card you can spend Collector’s Tokens to buy it directly.” If players can’t currently afford a specific card, Brode and his team have added the ability to pin cards, so they can be saved and purchased later. “We think players are going to love how this speeds up the process of collecting and gives them a little bit more agency to get the cards they want.”
Besides introducing the Silver Surfer, who seems to be at the heart of The Power Cosmic’s story, Brode exclaims that a “slew of new cards” are also on the way with the introduction of the “super rare” Series 4 and the “ten times more rare” Series 5. Altogether, there are 16 new cards in these two pools, including Luke Cage, She-Hulk and Thanos.
Brode concludes with another surprise that should please fans: 3,000 free Collection Tokens for anyone who’s reached Collection Level 500. “It’s enough to buy several Series 3 cards that you don’t have already,” Brode claims. “I hope you find your new favorite card.” The trailer concludes by confirming The Power Cosmic’s December 2022 release date.
Marvel SNAP is available for free, with optional microtransactions, on iOS, Android and Microsoft Windows.
