Valve reveals 2 new Dota 2 heroes during The International 7

Valve reveals 2 new Dota 2 heroes during The International 7”

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. They'll be very familiar to anyone who's played DotA 2 in the past. According to worldwide 2017 host Sean "Day9" Plott, "anything you see in Dota" it's in Valve's Artifact. The other one is some type of furry creature. However, he also pointed out that there will be quite a difference between "Artifact" and other games in the genre. They both look entirely new and are not reminiscent of any heroes from the original Dota.

These preview videos generally are representative of a heroes abilities, meaning this now unnamed hero will likely be highly mobile, with the ability to disarm opponents and curl up into a ball, rolling around to initiate or escape.

Aside from these, not much about the game has been revealed.

Valve has not announced for which platforms Valve's Artifact will be launching for but, we are pretty much certain it will come to PC. These, in turn, will allow them to buy "item cards" which they can equip to their heroes and make them stronger. Furthermore, some cards can have persistent effects on the lanes too. A trailer is available but it offers nothing more than the game's title and logo. Valve's Artifact is a digital trading card game much like the Blizzard Entertainment's Hearthstone. On one hand, it has a unique gameplay which crosses the elements of "Dota" with standard card game mechanics.

The video ends with a teaser for the "Dueling Fates" update, likely dropping shortly after The International ends, as is usual tradition. However, since Valve is making efforts to Steam better for mobile devices the game might also end up on mobile devices too.
