New Valve-game Artifact comes out on November 28 for $ 20




Artifact, the new game from Valve-makelij, is on sale from November 28 on Steam for $ 20. In 2019 there will be a version for Android and iOS. The game can also be played at the PAX West gaming fair in Seattle at the end of August.

Valve reports to various gaming media that participants at PAX West get the chance to compete against a veteran of the game when they come through the various competition rounds . In addition, merchandise and keys can be won for this digital Dota 2 trading card game .

Depending on what standards you use, this is the first game that Valve has issued since Dota 2 in 2013. The game was announced last year at The International, a big Dota 2 tournament. If this YouTube video is to be believed, the very first reactions to the disclosure were not unanimously positive.

Earlier this year Valve revealed more about the workings of the game. ‘The Half-Life 2 of the trading card games’ becomes a Hearthstone-esk game, but with three lanes , just like Dota 2 has. The game will have more than 280 cards at its release and 44 heroes , of which several are straight from Dota 2. Players compose decks consisting of 40 cards, of which a maximum of five heroes and three duplicates. The cards and heroes are divided into four colors – red, green, black and blue – and can only be played in a lane if a hero of the same color is present in the lane. The effects of maps can also affect other lanes. Similar to Dota, the intention is to demolish two of the three towers of the enemy or its Ancient .

Among others, Ars Technica has written an extensive preview based on hands-on experience. The game also comes out for macOS and Linux.
