It's a special time when Valve talks about a new game coming out but this one i've been speculating about for months. Digital Card games are the new hotness seen through the massive success of Hearthstone, Magic Online, Faeria, The Witcher Card Game, Elder Scrolls Legends and more and I've thought that Valve would be interested in getting in on it. Looks like they were thinking the same thing because in 2018 Artifact - The Dota Card Game will launch. So far all we've got is a very short trailer that only shows off the games four color logo that may be a tip to the different colored cards in Artifact? I guess time will tell what kind of digital card game it is but so far all the information about the game Valve is releasing on the Artifact Twitter page.

I imagine the game will be free to play with packs you can open and a ton of loot chests with cosmetic card backs and more. I am curious if there will be some shared loot with Dota 2 though? Also wondering how different Artifact will be from other existing digital card games on the market or if Valve will do something different? Will there be a VR component to Artifact? Are you interested in Dota digital card game from Valve?

So many questions that will be answered as time marches closer to the 2018 release date.


A few websites are noting a few details about the game, i've clipped the important bits below:

"The digital card game will be out in 2018. It’ll feature lanes, use characters like Bounty Hunter, and have cards like barracks that will push waves of minions down each player’s avenue of attack. It’ll be a card game version of Dota 2, essentially."

On the one hand: neat. On the other, I kinda wish the first new Valve game in years was something else. I'll still play it though!

Yeah, i'll try it. Not sure how much i'll actually play of it though. I bet Dota fans will love it.

Wouldn't a better game tile be "Bandwagon"? Easy money for them, I'm sure.
