Artifact is a brand new game by Valve based on their most successful title, Dota 2. The game plays a very important role in expanding the lore of Dota 2 and we could expect some new heroes introduced in Artifact like Rix, Kanna and Sorla Khan ported to Dota 2 as well. Dota 2 Artifact new card names and a decktracker has been leaked by a beta tester which will be shown down below
Dota 2 Artifact Gameplay Overview and Other Details
Expecting a card game which would be successful these days is kind of difficult but Artifact provides all of the important depth and lore borrowed from its MOBA roots. Artifact plays out as a best-of-three scenario, with all three games taking place more-or-less simultaneously. Each lane in Dota 2 is replaced by a board, and play rotates from top to middle, to bottom, before the cycle starts up again. The aim is to win two out of three of the boards by dealing damage to your opponents’ tower. Largely, each board is its own battlefield, but certain effects, particularly those attached to cards from the ‘Black’ suit, allow for interaction between boards.
A players wins a board when the enemy towers get destroyed (zero HP). Losing a board will expose your Ancient, which starts with 80 health, and if that falls then your opponent wins the match outright.
Will it be Free-to-play like Dota 2?
Nope. Dota 2 Artifact will be available to players who will pay $20 for the game. The purchase will get you a total of 228 cards (280 unique cards will be available at launch). Although all of the 228 cards will not be unique. You’ll get two base decks, each containing five heroes, nine items, and 40 additional cards. Ten booster packs will also be included, each containing 12 random cards, with every pack guaranteeing at least one rare. Further booster packs will be available for $2 each.
Dota 2 Artifact Leaked Cards Names and DeckTracker
A user on reddit leaked an image which shows a list of new cards and a decktracker. Check the picture down below for more details.
Some people argue that this could be fake, some say it is legit. If this is legitimate then we will have to see that what action will Valve take or not. This leak rises a lot of questions and we will have to wait to see what Valve is going to do to answer them. 1 interesting thing which I think about this game is Lore. Instead of a campaign, the game will tell us some juicy lore about the Dota 2 universe through different cards interaction.
