The season introduced a new limited-time event available now as players hype their favorite characters by using them in battles to collect records and unlock milestone rewards. Here's everything we know about the Hype the Hero event, including the event schedule, how to play, and rewards for Marvel Snap.
11th December 2022 Update: The three days Hero Login Rewards have been distributed to all players who can acquire a Storm Variant Card and 250 Credits. Log in today and claim them from the Snap News Inbox by tapping the newspaper icon on the top right of the screen as they will expire.
Marvel Snap Hype The Hero Event – Event Schedule
The brand new limited-time event, Hype the Hero, comes following the launch of the Power Cosmic season, which began on 2nd December 2022. This event coincides with the release of the game’s themed music video, Hero, by Dutch electronic DJ and producer Martin Garrix and American recording artist JVKE.
The music video highlights several variant Hero cards which can be acquired during the Hype the Hero event. While the developer, Second Dinner, didn't quite explain how the event works, it will conclude on 5th January 2023 at 10:59:59 pm PT / 6th January 2022 at 6:59:59 am UTC.
Marvel Snap Hype The Hero Event – Gameplay Rules
As stated above, Second Dinner could have made things more transparent on how the event works but a quick navigation around the game's Home screen will help you gain some clarity. Players need to locate the "Joining the Show: Hero" web event from the Home screen or by tapping the newspaper icon top left of the screen and find the "Hype the Hero" news article to be directed to the web event page.
This brings you to the event page, which by entering, serves as your entry to the Hype The Hero web event. You are tasked with collecting records which can be done by watching the music video and participating in matches by earning Cosmic Cubes.
You can get one record per Cosmic Cube, and we know that the maximum of Cosmic Cubes earned for each match is eight, with the total amount of records you can accumulate being eight records. Additionally, certain cards can boost the number of records collected if added to your deck; however, they can only be used for one week.
These are the cards that will double the records collected for the Hype the Hero and their schedule in Marvel Snap:
- Week 1: Gambit and Rogue
- Week 2: Doctor Doom, Invisible Woman, and Mister Fantastic
- Week 3: Sandman and Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
- Week 4: Angela and Sera
You can collect a maximum of 100 records daily, which will be added to a HYPE METER seen on the web event page. There are various milestones that you can achieve and, by doing so, unlock various rewards.
