Marvel Snap (Free), the latest Marvel-themed game to hit the App Store, has seen quite a bit of success since its global launch last month. The latest season event to hit the game has arrived, and perhaps unsurprisingly it’s a tie-in with the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever film from Marvel Studios. Let’s look at the details of the new Warriors of Wakanda event.
The rules are more or less the same as the recently wrapped-up Symbiote Invasion event. Play matches and try to complete missions to earn experience points towards increasing your Season Level and Rank, which in turn will earn you some rewards. The best rewards are reserved for those who fork out for a Premium Season Pass, which costs $9.99 USD. Those who play for free will at least get an assortment of Credits, Gold, and other bits and bobs, so there’s no real downside to playing.
The biggest new addition is the Black Panther card. He costs five Energy to play and has four Power, with an On Reveal ability that doubles his Power. Nothing too impressive on his own, but when combined with cards that trigger On Reveal abilities, the possibilities are enticing. Premium Season Pass owners can also look forward to special Variant cards for Okoye, Nakia, and Black Panther.
Of course, there are also some new locations that all players will have to contend with. Shuri’s Lab, Warrior Falls, Vibranium Mines, and Wakandan Throne will be added to the rotation to add some spice to the battles. The effects of most of these haven’t been revealed yet, so we’ll have to wait and see how things play out.
Warriors of Wakanda is live now in Marvel Snap, so if you want to play the event all you need to do is fire up the game and get to it. As for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, that opens this Friday, November 11th. I mean, you probably knew that already. But, you know, just in case.
