Valve is responsible for some of the greatest video games and systems of all time. And now, they're delving into the realm of card games to bring Dota 2 to life in a way never done before! This is Artifact, and it's a game that's very much worth your time.

For this isn't a simple card game, rather, it is a collaboration between legendary card game designer Richard Garfield and Valve. That's quite a team-up, wouldn't you say? This digital card game is not one to follow trends, rather, it's one to try and set the trends. With the characters and world-setting of Dota 2, and the limitless strategies that the game provides, you'll never grow bored with the title, as there's so much to do.

But, as in every good card game, the main crux is to defeat your opponent soundly, and epically. Three lanes of combat will need your attention. How will you defeat your opponents? How will you use your cards to their fullest potential? Artifact gives you an unlimited hand size, and unlimited number of units you control, and an unlimited mana you can employ.  The only limit here is your skill in strategy.

The battle is coming for you, will you be ready to fight with all you got?

But what's a card game without rivals, right? Artifact will let you battle not only your friends, but the world at large, and knowing Valve, you can bet that tournaments will rise up. And if you're lucky enough, you'll be in them.

Artifact‘s developers have given up on selling people cards. When the closed beta for Artifact 2.0 kicks off, you’ll have to earn every single card through playing – no market, no packs. Stingy pricing was just about the only thing holding the game back for me, so, hurray! It’s part of a big relaunch. Valve have also mentioned some changes they’re making to the game itself, including allowing “players to access all three lanes at once”. That’s pret...

This week we wanted to talk about the Artifact Beta 2.0, what it will include, and when it will happen. We’ve been focusing on gameplay changes first. The biggest change is zooming out to allow players access to all three lanes at once. The majority of effects still work on individual lanes so they still maintain their identity, but it’s less likely that a player will get shut...

Valve are on something of a roll right now. Half-Life: Alyx is looking absolutely stunning ahead of next week’s release. While Dota Underlords (and auto-battlers generally) might be on a bit of a downturn, it’s hard to say it hasn’t done well for itself. Now that they’re back in full swing, it might be time for Valve to bring their dustiest skeleton out of the closet. Gabe Newell reckons it might be time for another shot at Artifact. (more…)

First off, we wanted to say thanks for all of your tweets, emails and posts. The continued interest in Artifact has been encouraging, and we sincerely appreciate all of the feedback! You might notice some changes soon – we are starting tests on our systems and infrastructure. This shouldn’t impact live Artifact but we wanted to give you a heads up. Expect more news after the l...

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. This is the one that stings the most. The commercially-unsuccessful game that most makes me want to stand in front of unwelcoming crowds, pound on my chest and scream about how wrong you all are. Artifact doesn’t deserve to be the butt of people’s jokes. It doesn’t deserve to be the butt of anything. It’s one of the best card games out there. (more…)
