Marvel Snap Steam/Nuverse

The recently-released free-to-play card game, Marvel Snap, received a major update yesterday. Update v8.7.1 brought new content, balancing changes, general updates, and a ton of bug fixes.

The latest addition to the game is Titles. Players will unlock Titles from Collector’s Reserves on the Collection Level Track. Selected titles will be shown to opponents in the matchmaking screen while you load into a match. So, select your best Title and flex it to other players.

The patch also brings Character logos to Avatars. This should help players easily understand what each avatar represents. Boosters gained after a match will now favor cards with less than 20 owned boosters, and PC players can resize the gameplay window with 60 FPS.
