Launched in late 2018 to a great deal of guarantee from DOTA 2 fans, Artifact quickly collapsed and throughout numerous months, its playerbase decreased down to 300 or less on any offered day: for a first-party Valve video game, that was kind of unprecedented. After a lull duration Valve described that it was going to turn the video game around, and after that we awaited more info … for approximately a complete year. Now the time has come to “fix” Artifact, and Valve is going to start with a “2.0 edition.”
Validated by Valve itself, “Artifact Beta 2.0” begins today, with a “first round of invites” to choose gamers. If you got the call you’ll see “Beta 2.0” on your account, however there is “no timeline” for additional invitees: if you don’t have it, you do not have it. Valve is going to focus on bugs and usability initially in regards to feedback, with other subjects coming later on.
