Valve announces new game 'Artifact' and fans lose their minds

10 August 2017

This Dota-themed card game was announced during the Dota 2 worldwide live-stream and is scheduled for a 2018 release. The crowd's groan-filled reaction to Valve's reveal of the Dota 2 card game, called Artifact, speaks to exactly how everyone else in the world feels about yet another online card game. Brad Muir, who left Double Fine in 2015, said on Twitter that he's been working on this project for a while. There are three boards, and mechanics include lanes, creep and barrack building. The card game will use the same heroes that are available in Dota 2, already guaranteeing plenty of variety. The YouTube trailer's like to dislike ratio is also heavily negative and as you can imagine, the comments aren't particularly favourable either. Revealed at Valve's massive annual Dota 2 tournament, The International, Artifact has been the topic of much discussion since its debut. Hearthstone is a good example of a game recent overnight popularity after Valve released the mobile version.

Most of the annoyance with Valve seems to be about it not releasing games many people seem to feel entitled to.

We can surmise some sort of elemental facet to the game based on the tri-colors of the game's logo, but that's mere speculation. This is one of the biggest esports events of the year, and it attracts thousands of dedicated fans to Seattle's Key Arena to watch live matches featuring game's best players on the planet.

In any case, a DOTA card game will be an interesting thing to see.

Digital card games have become something huge in the gaming industry. The game will probably make it to Steam as well, but it remains uncertain whether it will be compatible with other platforms.
