Marvel Snap New Card Release and Series Drop Schedule

We outline the release dates and schedule of upcoming new Marvel Snap cards and Series Drop, as well as information on how to obtain them.

New unreleased Marvel Snap cards are primarily released via Season Passes and one new card is introduced as a Series 5 or Series 4 card on a weekly cadence. They are then downgraded to Series 4 or 3 cards over time, called the Series Drop, which increase their drop rate and reduces their cost, making the easier to acquire. In this guide, we outline the release date and schedule of new cards Marvel Snap, when they undergo a Series Drop, and how they are obtained.

New Cards

Players can expect to acquire newly released cards in Marvel Snap through the following ways:

Series 4 and 5

New cards that are released as either Series 4 or Series 5 cards and can be obtained through random chance in the Collector’s Caches and Reserves, or via Collector’s Tokens and the Token Shop. For guides on what cards are available in each Series, their ratings, and decks check out our guides below:

“Big Bad” Series 5 Cards

The follow cards are classified as “Big Bad” cards that are not planned to be ever downgraded from Series 5:

“Indefinite” Series 4 Cards

The follow cards have been confirmed to be staying in Series 4 until further announcements. As we yet do not have any precedence, we cannot say how long they might stay in Series 4.

Season Pass

Each month starts a new season for Marvel Snap, where players are able to purchase the Premium Season Pass to obtain the new card for the season. This card is then added as a Series 5 card after the season ends. For a detailed guide, check out our guide on Seasons:

Series Drop

With the monthly update patch (not with the start of a new season or daily reset time), cards are demoted from Series 5 to 4, and 4 to 3 to make them easier for players to obtain. You can find the history of Series Drops and upcoming announcements here and information about Series here.

Initially, all cards were on the same schedule starting in Series 5, dropping to Series 4 and eventually Series 3. According to the latest May 2023 update in the card acquisition model however, there will be more flexibility in what cards drop series and when. Examples include:

  • Preserving the Series of a card, like the “Big Bads” Thanos and Galactus and “indefinite” Series 4 cards such as Darkhawk and Knull.
  • A card may go from Series 5 directly to Series 3 to give it more play rate.
  • A monthly series drop may even be skipped entirely when the meta looks fun and healthy.

These decisions will be made on a card-by-card basis based on data and player feedback instead of applying a blanket rule to all cards and will not be predictable going forward.

  1. Marvel Snap New Card Schedule – January 2023 – Dazzler, Shadow King, MODOK, Kang, and More!

    What do you mean with “More!” There is no more announcements beyond Shadow King and MODOK…

  2. Very little hype for the new cards, because nobody can play them.
    I was excited for the Series drop. I saved 10 reserves and 10k credits. I opened Luke Cage and Titania, but ZERO Series 4/5 cards. I genuinely believe Snap has the worst economy of any digital CG. 🙁

  3. High Evolutionary will be fore sure one of the big bad. It will be in the film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Same as Kang that it was inside Ant-Man.

  4. On this month, they’ve changed the series drop logic I presume. They didn’t dropped Knull and Darkhawk to Series 3. I was expecting both of them. It seems the series drop won’t be regular as before. They might keep popular cards on series 4/5. I hope they’ll increase the drop rate of them.
