 DIGITAL BOARD GAME NEWS - UPCOMING

Valve's premium card game Artifact finally gets revealed, designed by the creator of Magic and coming next year to mobile

Source 2 goes mobile

Product: Artifact | Publisher: Valve
For: Board Game   Also on: Android, iPhone, iPad
 
Valve teased its latest game, a TCG, a while back and the reception was mild after everyone expected another entry in Valve's portfolio of legendary titles.

Still, Artifact is more interesting that that and at a preview event earlier this week, they delivered a lot of information.

The most important piece is that the game's actually designed by Richard Garfield, known for Magic: The Gathering. As you can imagine, that's quite the name to put forward on a card game. Artifact is furthermore, and quite surprisingly, a paid app as Valve wants to avoid any kind of buy-to-win scenario.



Artifact is based on DOTA and features a lane-based gameplay that should be familiar to those who've played it. This is quite novel in a card game though and should open plenty of strategic opportunities. Creeps will spawn in each lane and you'll have towers to defend or attack. The idea is if your tower is defeated, an ancient will spawn there. If he dies, it's game over.

You'll switch between lane after each round, meaning that you'll have to plan quite far ahead.

This is the first time that we'll see the Source 2 in action on mobile but we'll have to wait quite a bit as it isn't scheduled to release until mid-2019 on Android and iOS tablets.

Still, seing Valve making games again is great and we can only hope that's just the start.
