However, it might not be fair to judge Valve and Artifact just because most players were let down by the fact that the new game did not turn out to be Half-Life 3.
Aside from these, not much about the game has been revealed.
The video ends with a teaser for the "Dueling Fates" update, likely dropping shortly after The International ends, as is usual tradition.
Earlier this week, a brand new Valve game was unveiled at the biggest Dota 2 tournament of the year, The International, but the company had another surprise in store for fans. Valve's Artifact is a digital trading card game much like the Blizzard Entertainment's Hearthstone. According to host Sean "Day9" Plott who made the reveal, "anything you see in 'Dota, ' it's here". The other one is some type of furry creature. However, in Artifact, players control five heroes and deploy them to three boards, representing the teams of DOTA 2 and its three lanes.

If you're on PS4 and Xbox One , you'll need PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold respectively to enjoy the multiplayer. This can be the case in the future and indeed the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro can have these effects.
Neither of the heroes have been given names but we do know what their general appearances will be, as well as the weapons, and potential abilities they may use. Some cards also have persistent effects on the lanes themselves which can affect the units in them.
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.
We get a much briefer look at the second hero. But with Valve's plans to make Steam run on mobile, the game making its way to smartphones and tablets is definitely a possibility. But, until Valve officially announces we can only guess. For more coverage on the game keep checking back at SegmentNext.
