Valve Announces Artifact, A Dota Card Game

Dota is no longer just a MOBA. According to Day9, the game feels a little like Hearthstone, but with a three-lane Dota 2 system and other similar "tweaks" you might find with said game.

At The Intertantional, the major Dota 2 esports tournament now taking place in Seattle all week, Valve took the time to announce a brand new game it has in the works for 2018 called Artifact.

It's a busy time for the card-collecting genre. But while these card games draw from the success of physical card games like Magic: The Gathering in the West or Yu-Gi-Oh in the East, very few can boast of the enjoying the same amount of success as some newer MOBAs enjoy.

Digital card games seem to be the rage these days.

Except for Hearthstone. Launched back in 2014, the digital card game also came somewhat as a surprise. Aside from the trailer above, details on Artifact are super light. Not much is known about the game just yet, but a vague teaser debuted during the August 8 broadcast. For card-play. Classic Dota. There are three boards, and mechanics include lanes, creep and barrack building. Unfortunately details about the game and how it plays remains scarce, but it is slated to be released in 2018 which is pretty much all we know at the moment.
