Artifact is an upcoming digital collectible card game developed and published by Valve Corporation. The game's concept is heavily based upon Dota 2, a multiplayer online battle arena game also by Valve. Artifact features card trading integration on the Steam Marketplace, and includes three separate playing boards, called lanes, similar to Dota 2. Artifact's design was lead by Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield. The game will be released for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux in late 2018, and for Android and iOS devices the following year.

The game was first announced via a teaser trailer during The International 2017, a large Dota 2-specific eSports tournament organized by Valve Corporation, although no specific details were revealed. More details regarding its concept and gameplay were revealed by Valve co-founder Gabe Newell during a meeting with gaming press at Valve's headquarters in March 2018. In it, Newell stated that it being based off Dota 2 was not originally intended, but it was decided to do so later in development as it was “useful”. Newell also stated that it would not be free-to-play like Dota 2 and other similar trading card game competitors, also stating that he and the team wish for it to avoid becoming “pay-to-win”, and that it would be for card games what Half-Life 2 was for single-player action games. Also like Dota 2, the game will be using Valve's in-house Source 2 game engine and will feature card trading integration with the Steam Marketplace. Wanting to building upon what they have learned from Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Team Fortress 2, Valve plan for the game to have a professional eSports scene, with revenue made from card pack purchasing feeding into tournament prize pools, similar to Dota 2's “Compendium” crowdfunding system. To start, Valve plan for a US$1 million tournament to take place sometime in early 2019. The game's design is lead by Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield, who joined the project in 2014. Despite IceFrog, the lead designer of Dota 2, not working on the game, Newell compared Garfield to him, praising their talents and similarities. Artifact will be developed alongside updates for Dota 2, introducing new heroes and other content for both games. Steve Jaros, a writer at Valve, wrote character background information for Dota 2 and will continue that role with Artifact by having each card provide lore, which he hopes will keep both games narratively connected. Programmer Jeep Barnett said they plan to have card set expansions progress over time, so that heroes in one set may have an aged version in a future set, or may die in one, and events of previous expansions will influence future ones. The game entered closed beta in early 2018, with numerous gaming industry members and professional card game players invited to test it. It will be released for Microsoft Windows, macOS and Linux in late 2018, and for Android and iOS devices in 2019.
