Valve unveils is new videogame, Artifact

Valve's newest Dota 2 card game Artifact

According to Newell, the research allows anyone to "capitalize on all the other multiplayer games, the technology, [and] the fact that China is now a huge market for anybody who does PC game development". The flames of hope for Half-Life 3 are starting to be stoked again with Valve's Gabe Newellhaving announced that Valve is "going to start shipping games again".

Valve president Gabe Newell sat down and discussed numerous details surrounding their mysterious upcoming card game to the press, according to reports.

This follows on from news from about a year ago when Valve noted that it was working on multiple new games, a few of which were fully-fledged single-player or big AAA-like experiences.

Over the previous year, the popularity of the battle royale genre has seen significant growth, with many popular titles within the genre (such as PUBG and Fortnite) breaking several different records, including those for the highest number of concurrent players and fastest early access game to sell one million units on Steam.

"We've always been a little bit jealous of companies like Nintendo", said Newell. And he can make the hardware look as good as possible because he's designing the software at the same time that's really going to take advantage of it. "So that is something we've been jealous of, and that's something that you'll see us taking advantage of subsequently".

One such detail is the fact that "Artifact" will be a pay-to-play model, just like any other retail game or, perhaps more appropriately, just like a real-life card game. It is worth noting that based the project on Dota 2.
