Artifact is Valve's attempt at entering the digital collectible card game genre to compete with the likes of Blizzard's Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering. However, the studio's lack of support, heavy pay-to-win mechanics, and cutting its competitive scene short was a major part of its downfall.

A collaboration between legendary card game designer Richard Garfield and Valve, Artifact is a digital card game that combines deeply-strategic, competitive gameplay with the rich setting of Dota 2. The result is an immersive and visually-stunning trading card game unlike any other.
