Valve announces Dota 2 'The Dueling Fates' update, two new heroes incoming

Valve announces Dota 2 'The Dueling Fates' update, two new heroes incoming

When Valve told attendees at The International, the premier tournament for DOTA 2, that it will be announcing a new game, the suspense became unbearable. The company will capitalize on the massive popularity of "Dota 2" by creating a game based on it. According to worldwide 2017 host Sean "Day9" Plott, "anything you see in Dota" it's in Valve's Artifact.

Artifact will feature similarities as other digital card games in terms of cards representing creatures and spells.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. disputes notion he's stunted NASCAR's growth
Even Jimmie Johnson with his seven championships isn't as well-known among casual fans as Earnhardt. Earnhardt responded to Harvick's remarks Thursday, saying the comments were "hurtful".

We get a much briefer look at the second hero. Heroes will have abilities that players can take advantage of and these abilities will be similar to that of in Dota 2 and players will be able to move heroes from lane to lane. In one example given on Reddit, a player continually built barracks on one lane, swamping it with creeps and forcing their opponent to deal with the growing problem of weak enemies, thereby taking their focus off of the other lanes and allowing the spawner to recover. Some cards also have persistent effects on the lanes themselves which can affect the units in them.

Not much is known about the game as Valve has been very tight lipped about Valves' Artifact. A trailer is available but it offers nothing more than the game's title and logo. The official announcement was made during the Dota 2 global tournament.

Trump fires further threats toward North Korea as war of words escalates
As North Korea's only real ally, China has more influence than any other nation over the hermit nation. They weren't authorized to discuss the confidential exchanges and spoke on condition of anonymity.

It's still too early to predict how the game will perform in the already saturated digital card game genre. But if there's anything Valve has taught gamers in the past, is that they can make any game a hit.

The video ends with a teaser for the "Dueling Fates" update, likely dropping shortly after The International ends, as is usual tradition. Platform-wise, it is expected to come out to the PC via their Steam distribution platform.
