Artifact is a Dota 2 spin-off card game from Valve
During this week’s Dota 2 International tournament, Valve unveiled a new game it is currently developing: a spin-off card game called Artifact which uses elements from Dota 2.
The announcement itself was light on specific details, but we do know that Artifact will use familiar Dota 2 characters and gameplay elements like creeps, buildable barracks, and even MOBA-esque lanes (in case you weren’t aware, Dota 2 is a MOBA). A short teaser trailer was also released but it too doesn’t include any specific gameplay details.
A release date for Artifact hasn’t yet been confirmed, though Valve did say it’s aiming for a 2018 release. If you want to stay up to date on Artifact, the game now has an official Twitter account that you can follow.
