Valve Reveals New DOTA 2 Heroes

Valve's Artifact The Dota 2 Card Game

Despite reports that there is no such thing as Half-Life 3 and Valve employees trolling gamers with Half-Life 3 hoaxes, gamers are still hoping that Valve will release the next iteration in the massively popular franchise soon. This is similar to how the hero, Monkey King, was revealed at last year's global and subsequently released with "The New Journey" update, months later.

The announcement came with a new trailer for the new update, which revealed the two new characters.

The disappointment was evident in the reaction of the crowd when Artifact was unveiled, as captured by Twitter user Nickisnixed.

Valve's Artifact: The Dota Card game was recently announced by Valve. Although we still don't have a firm grasp on what the game will be like as a whole, we can at least paint a picture of what it may be like to play. The company will capitalize on the massive popularity of "Dota 2" by creating a game based on it.

Valve surprised fans at The International 7 yesterday by revealing two new Dota 2 heroes: one acrobatic, armadillo-inspired swordsman and a pink fairy.

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. So it could be that the hero will have the same abilities that we have seen.

Currently, no concrete release date has been announced by Valve for the game but, we do know that the game will launch sometime in 2018 but, we will have to wait nearly 6-12 months for Valve to announce the release date for Valve's Artifact.

The event's host, Sean "Day9" Plott provided a little more information about the game, saying it involves three boards, and the player can control five heroes from "Dota 2's" hero roster and deploy them on the different lanes. The announcement video is seen above, giving us a peek at how they will appear in-game.
