The Dueling Fates update for the game does not yet have an official release date. So if you have any questions about the game then it should be answered in here.

Aside from these, not much about the game has been revealed.

The International 2017 Dota 2 tournament came to an end with a bang.

It's still too early to predict how the game will perform in the already saturated digital card game genre.

Let's start with what the game actually is. The company will capitalize on the massive popularity of "Dota 2" by creating a game based on it. According to worldwide 2017 host Sean "Day9" Plott, "anything you see in Dota" it's in Valve's Artifact.

Artifact will feature similarities as other digital card games in terms of cards representing creatures and spells. "Artifact" would have the advantage of a source material with a huge fanbase, as well as a different gameplay that may prove popular to those who do not play "Dota 2".

Each turn they'll be faced with the waves of creeps that are ever present in the main game and will of course, have to deal with the opposing heroes too. In the video you can see him hopping and jumping around on hills, dancing skillfully around his enemies and finishing them off them with quick swipes of his blade. So it could be that the hero will have the same abilities that we have seen. Also, Valve has a history of holding a beta for its titles in the past so we are hopeful that there will be a beta for the game given that every major card game released in recent years had closed and public betas. Platform-wise, it is expected to come out to the PC via their Steam distribution platform. But, until Valve officially announces we can only guess.
