The Artifact beta has been chugging along on for a couple of weeks now, but the vast majority of players are still waiting to get their hands on Valve’s latest Dota-themed collectable card game.
So when does Artifact actually release for the general public? Thankfully, we've don't have to speculate. A tentative release time has been released by the official Artifact Twitter ID.
We are aiming to release Artifact between 1 PM and 2 PM PST on Wednesday. Steam store updated to reflect that time window.— Artifact (@PlayArtifact) November 27, 2018
So the game will be launching in the wee hours of the morning for SEA fans (02:30 AM to 03:30 AM IST | 05:00 AM to 06:00 AM SGT).
Artifact is also getting its own set of webcomics accompanying its release. The comics appear to deepen the story of the Dota universe in which Artifact is set. The first comic called Prelude and is available already, while a second, Call to Arms, set to “transform the world of Dota forever” will launch alongside the game later tonight.
