However, it might not be fair to judge Valve and Artifact just because most players were let down by the fact that the new game did not turn out to be Half-Life 3.
Not much is known about the game as Valve has been very tight lipped about Valves' Artifact.
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.
It's still too early to predict how the game will perform in the already saturated digital card game genre.
Dota 2 fans, rejoice-new heroes are on the way. According to host Sean "Day9" Plott who made the reveal, "anything you see in 'Dota, ' it's here". Players will control five heroes and these heroes will be based on the heroes in Dota 2. They both look entirely new and are not reminiscent of any heroes from the original Dota. The heroes have different abilities and can be moved between the boards.
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. Some cards also have persistent effects on the lanes themselves which can affect the units in them.
What do you think of how Artifact sounds now that we know a little more about it?
Valve has not announced for which platforms Valve's Artifact will be launching for but, we are pretty much certain it will come to PC.
Everything else about Artifact, however, remains unclear, including the other gameplay elements, the platforms it will be available on, how its graphics would look like, and if it would use Valve's Steam marketplace. For more coverage on the game keep checking back at SegmentNext.
