Amidst all the talk about Half-Life: Alyx, Valve boss Gabe Newell dropped a surprising message a couple of weeks ago that Valve is still working on Artifact, its big-flop CCG. Right around the same time, the Artifact Twitter account sprung back to life with its first message in almost a year, declaring that the game is “under construction” and linking to a message promising more information after the launch of Alyx.

With Alyx now out and fans well into the process of freeing it from its VR shackles, Valve has followed through with a new, more detailed update about what’s in store for Artifact’s near future. It’s still relatively early in the re-development process, but it sounds like big changes are coming, beginning with the ability to zoom out to view all three lanes at once. That sounds like a fairly basic feature, but Valve said it should make it easier for players to stay on top of what’s happening in the game and avoid being “shut out” as happened in the original iteration.
