The April 28 developer update video from Marvel Snap developer Second Dinner introduced a bunch of new and upcoming cards to the game. These will be released in May, just in time for the release of the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. This includes a new season pass card and a new series five “big bad” known as High Evolutionary.

Here’s everything you need to know about High Evolutionary and the “secret abilities” mechanic.

High Evolutionary abilities

As first data mined by known Marvel Snap leaker and information source @MarvelSnapBugle on Twitter, High Evolutionary is expected to be a four-cost, seven-Power card with an ability that reads: “At the start of the game, unlock the secret ability of all your cards with no abilities.”

The leaked High Evolutionary card indicates that a new mechanic could be coming to Marvel Snap: secret abilities. @MarvelSnapBugle pointed out a handful of vanilla units that may have these secret abilities.

Second Dinner has confirmed all of the leaks above, as well as the secret abilities of the vanilla cards through the new video released for the upcoming May season themed around Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
