Valve's Artifact is complicated, but might have the chops to beat Hearthstone

September 09, 2018 1 min read

Let's talk about Artifact. The card-based battler was shown off to the public for the first time last weekend at PAX West, and I got to go hands-on with it during the show and speak with a couple of the game's developers. It's significant mainly because it's the first major Valve game since DOTA 2 in 2013 (VR toy The Lab released in 2016, but virtual reality is still too niche to consider this a major release).

The title has been in development since 2015 but wasn't revealeduntil August last year, to some disappointment. Collectible Card Games (CCGs) aren't for everybody, and if you don't like other games of this type Artifact probably won't change your mind. On the other hand, if you're already a fan of card games Artifact should be right up your alley.
