Thursday 10 August 2017 - 17:00 BST
Valve has announced that it is working on a new card game titled Artifact: The Dota Card Game. The game was announced during The International, the premier Dota 2 tournament.
Even though not much is known about the game's contents, it is expected to be set in the Dota 2 universe and will reportedly feature three boards to play on.
Players expected the company to announce new content for the video game itself rather than a separate card game.
After the announcement the game's teaser trailer also received hundreds of negative responses on YouTube with some questioning the directions of the company as it fails to meet demands for new Half-Life and Left 4 Dead games.
With Artifact Valve hopes to compete with other card games such as Blizzard's Hearthstone and CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3 card game Gwent.
Artifact: The Dota Card Game is expected to launch in 2018.
