Valve Surprises With The Dota 2 Card Game, Artifact

The International hosts the announcement of a new Valve title.

At the International Dota 2 Championships this year, Valve surprised with the announcement of a new title. Artifact is a digital collectible card game, like Hearthstone and Gwent, but with Dota-related art. Valve offered up a short teaser trailer for the title and a release window in 2018.

Brad Muir, the former Double Fine designer behind Massive Chalice and Iron Brigade, is involved in the development of Artifact. According to descriptions given by broadcaster Sean "Day9" Plott, Artifact will involve classic Dota staples like lanes, creeps, and barracks.

We'll have more on Artifact when Valve offers more details on the title.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
