Not all existing Dota 2 heroes are guaranteed to make it into Valve’s next game, Artifact, but this crafty Geomancer, Meepo, is confirmed to get a card counterpart, and IGN has the first details on his cards.

In Artifact, almost every known hero card has either a passive or active ability and a signature spell card. Meepo is unique in that his card has both an active and a passive. His active ability, Poof, allows Meepo to move to an allied Meepos lane and deal 2 damage to his new enemy neighbors. His passive or “continuous effect” ability, United We Fall, requires that if Meepo dies, allied Meepos in other lanes die too.

Like in Dota 2, Meepo’s signature spell allows him to summon another Meepo. You can see the spell card and the art for other Meepo in the slideshow below. Each hero comes with three copies of their signature spell card, so there’s potential to have four Meepos across the board at once.

Valve said there are currently over 280 cards in Artifact, 44 of which are hero cards. Meepo joins this growing list of known hero cards:

  • Axe
  • Luna
  • Zeus
  • Earth Shaker
  • Chen
  • Bristleback
  • Phantom Assassin
  • Sniper
  • Pugna
  • Legion Commander
  • Crystal Maiden
  • Lycan
  • Ursa
  • Necrophos
  • Sven
  • Rix
  • Fahrvhan the Dreamer
  • Keefe the Bold
  • Kanna
  • Sorla Khan

Artifact is out on PC on November 28 for $20 and will have a beta sometime in October that's currently only available to The International 8 attendees and people who try out the game at PAX West. Artifact will come to iOS and Android devices sometime in 2019.
