Returning to Artifact, Gabe Newell also said that in fact this game is not a DOTA 2 card game. However, this game is an independent card game that only takes them from DOTA 2. And later, this game will really play the role of a player vs player game. There is no single-player campaign.
Currently, Artifact is still in the closed beta phase, where only the trading card game and industry professionals can play it. And about the release, there is no definite date yet. To be sure, at the end of 2018, this game can be played on PC and mid-2019 will be released on the mobile platform. With this, Artifact will become a game with Source 2 that can be played on your cellphone.
In addition, it has also been confirmed that this game is not a free to play game. So, price is also an important question. Remember, not everyone likes to play this genre game, especially if you have to pay a price that is less friendly.
