Artifact gets a new comic series to prepare for launch

The Dota universe expands a little more.

Artifact is a digital card game that's set in the world of Dota 2, and along with the imminent Steam release of the game on November 28 we're also getting a new comic called Prelude, as Valve revealed in an official post.

Prelude is the first in a new series of comics based on the game, and the second comic called Call to Arms will release on launch day, although brace yourself for "a series of events that will transform the world of Dota forever."

The beta has also been updated, and the patch notes are available below for you to read. Will you be getting these comics?
