Valve announces Dota 2 'The Dueling Fates' update, two new heroes incoming

Valve's Artifact The Dota 2 Card Game

When Valve told attendees at The International, the premier tournament for DOTA 2, that it will be announcing a new game, the suspense became unbearable.

Valve unveiled Artifact, a new digital card game based on the popular DOTA franchise that players are already criticizing because it is not the long-awaited Half-Life 3. According to global 2017 host Sean "Day9" Plott, "anything you see in Dota" it's in Valve's Artifact. However, he also pointed out that there will be quite a difference between "Artifact" and other games in the genre.

Using the concept of lanes from DotA 2 and other MOBAs, Artifact will have three boards that players will battle over.

Neither of the heroes have been given names but we do know what their general appearances will be, as well as the weapons, and potential abilities they may use.

Aaron Carter says ex didn't 'understand' his bisexuality
He further declared, "Whether I should be with a woman or a man is my decision, no one else's". Aaron Carter is adamant that whether he dates a man or a woman, it is his own decision.

If players manage to kill enemy heroes and creeps then they will be rewarded with gold which players can spend to buy "item cards" which players can equip to heroes.

We get a much briefer look at the second hero.

Aside from these, not much about the game has been revealed. Furthermore, some cards can have persistent effects on the lanes too. Still, fans can expect a few more details to come out after the conclusion of this The International 2017. Valve's Artifact is a digital trading card game much like the Blizzard Entertainment's Hearthstone. But if there's anything Valve has taught gamers in the past, is that they can make any game a hit.

The fairy-who holds a lantern with a menacing, flying creature inside-seems to match the description of an upcoming hero uncovered in game files from an update from May, called Sylph. However, since Valve is making efforts to Steam better for mobile devices the game might also end up on mobile devices too.
