Artifact, a new Dota 2-based card game was announced today by Valve at TI7.
A brief teaser trailer was released for the game ahead of its 2018 launch. Watch it below:
As reported by Polygon, Artifact differs from traditional card games in that it involves three boards. While Valve didn’t share too many details about the game, it appears to feature a number of elements from the studio’s popular MOBA, including creeps, barrack building and multi-lane strategies. Naturally, a selection of characters from Dota 2 will be featured as well.
Artifact will almost assuredly be compared to Blizzard’s wildly popular card game Hearthstone, a new expansion for which launches later this week.
