Marvel Snap requires players to build up their decks and collect cards based on their favorite Marvel superhero or supervillain. All the artwork in the game comes directly from the comics or is made specifically for the title, with most of the original illustrations done by comic book artists.

When Marvel Snap was announced, the developers claimed it will arrive on PC via Steam. Early access for Marvel Snap on Steam launched the same day as the game’s release on mobile devices, October 18. However, unlike the version of the game on mobile devices, the full version of Marvel Snap is not available on PC at the time of this writing. Steam lists the full version of the game as releasing on PC sometime in mid-2023.

When Marvel Snap fully launches on PC, the game plans to support a new UI experience developed specifically for PC. The new implementations include a fullscreen landscape display for the game to fit players’ monitors. The PC version of the game will be supported by new updates and content at the same cadence as the mobile version of the title.
