Valve's Artifact: The Dota Card Game Everything You Need To Know

'Artifact' Announcement: All the Available Details for Valve's 'Dota 2' Card Game So Far

Valve unveiled a teaser for a new card game called "Artifact" to be released in 2018.

"Artifact" is Valve's upcoming card game based on "Dota 2".

"Artifact" will surely draw comparisons with Blizzard's "Hearthstone", which is a turn-based card game based on the universe of Warcraft.

Not much is known about the game as Valve has been very tight lipped about Valves' Artifact.

Let's start with what the game actually is.

When Valve told attendees at The International, the premier tournament for DOTA 2, that it will be announcing a new game, the suspense became unbearable. According to host Sean "Day9" Plott who made the reveal, "anything you see in 'Dota, ' it's here". The other one is some type of furry creature. "Artifact" would have the advantage of a source material with a huge fanbase, as well as a different gameplay that may prove popular to those who do not play "Dota 2".

For starters, players will control five heroes and deploy them on three boards, which represent lanes much like a game of "Dota".

Neither of the heroes have been given names but we do know what their general appearances will be, as well as the weapons, and potential abilities they may use. Killing creeps and enemy heroes will net you gold which you can then use to buy items and equipment to augment your characters. Some cards also have persistent effects on the lanes themselves which can affect the units in them. Also, Valve has a history of holding a beta for its titles in the past so we are hopeful that there will be a beta for the game given that every major card game released in recent years had closed and public betas.

We get a much briefer look at the second hero. For more coverage on the game keep checking back at SegmentNext.
