Valve's Artifact tournament
On Saturday, November 10, Valve will kick off the Artifact Preview Tournament. In addition to this tournament, Valve will also open up pre-orders for the game. And then on top of that, the dev team released the Card Set and Deck Code APIs that will allow creators to make tools to share cards.

The APIs are available right now for free. They can be downloaded from the Artifact website.

Pre-orders will open at 9AM (PT) tomorrow. The game itself won't be released until November 28.

The Artifact Preview Tournament will have 128 players competing for a shot at the $10,000 (USD) prize pool.
Hosted by Beyond The Summit and broadcast on SteamTV, the all-draft event will feature a 7-round Swiss bracket on Saturday. Then a top 8 single-elimination bracket will decide the winner on Sunday. Both days begin at 9AM PST.

Valve notes that the tournament will be run through the game's built-in tournament system. This same system will be available to everyone that owns the game.
