Get a load of the gorgeous artwork coming with Valve's new card game.
On this page you’ll find all of the official Artifact screenshots and artwork that have been released so far.
At the recent press event that let a few more people dive deeper into Artifact (the new Valve card game themed around the Dota universe), a generous dollop of screenshots were also made available.
Some of these show off the entire “three-land” game board, while others take a much closer look at individual lanes, and the interactions taking place upon them. You’ll even catch a closer look at one of the hero cards too.
After these half a dozen or so gameplay grabs we’ve also got a look at some of the tasty artwork that’s being produced for the game. Right at the end you’ll find some very pretty poster art too, so make sure you check all the way through to the end of the gallery.
If you’re coming to the game from a completely fresh perspective and have no idea what’s going on, Artifact is Valve’s attempt to get a piece of the CCG action that’s to date been dominated by the likes of Hearthstone and Magic The Gathering.
In the game, you’ll have to manage three separate game boards in order to beat down the towers protecting each player’s Ancient. When the Ancient dies, a victor is declared, and gameplay cycles between the three boards (or lanes) until that objective has been achieved.
It’s looking to be a pretty complex CCG by comparison with the likes of Hearthstone, then, but we think it offers enough that’s new to potentially make it a very big deal indeed. Check out our comprehensive Artifact: The Dota Card Game guide for the lowdown on every last area of the game.
