Valve’s New Game Deadlock Gameplay Details Have Been Leaked

Valve seems to be working on a new multiplayer game called Deadlock, which looks like a hero shooter. This info comes from leaks by playtesters on social media recently. The details have now been confirmed by Insider Gaming and Valve dataminer @GabeFollower, and one of the characters, Grey Talon, was also spotted in some leaked screenshots.

New Deadlock Game Info Leaked

Initial info on Valve’s new game, Deadlock was shared by Twitter user GabeFollower, and now, Insider Gaming has provided further information on the game. According to their report, the gameplay is quite similar to DOTA, involving killing enemies and creeps to earn “souls,” which you can use to buy items to strengthen your hero.

The following are a few other details revealed by the report:

  • The game is called Deadlock, and it’s in alpha right now.
  • The game is referred to as an “early development build with lots of experimental gameplay features and art assets” in official documentation.
  • Deadlock is a 6v6 third-person hero-based shooter. The heroes in the game include magicians, robots, creatures, humans, and more.
  • Presently, there are 19 unique heroes, each with special abilities and playstyles typical of a MOBA, such as ranged, healers, tanks, assassins, etc.
  • Both creeps and enemies drop a “soul” upon death, which floats up and away. Players collect the most souls by shooting at them, though even souls that float away provide a small amount of currency.
  • Creeps spawn randomly across the map, with a larger AI boss appearing in the middle.
  • Players can deposit spirit urns in the middle of the map to grant additional souls to their entire team. And the ones carrying the spirit urn is visible to all players on the minimap.

New Valve Deadlock Gameplay Screenshots Leaks

The post had four pictures supposedly from a video game. It showed characters fighting in a city that reminded people of Half-Life 2’s City 17. One character looked like the Sniper from Team Fortress 2. Another picture showed a hero called Grey Talon, along with their weapon and special abilities, with a brief description.

Another leaked screenshot shows a tutorial menu called “Get Started.” It explains stuff like how to play, special moves, and what you need to do in a match. In one part, it talks about “Lanes” and shows a picture of the game map with four lanes. Each lane has a transit line that players can use to get to the middle of the map. This means players will likely have intense battles as they move along each lane, kind of like in some Counter-Strike 2 maps.

The new pictures reveal that Valve wants to join the hero shooter game scene with a special game that could be as popular as Overwatch 2 and Valorant. Deadlock will also go up against NetEase Games’ Marvel Rivals, which is another game where you control heroes from a third-person view. Having more games like this could make the developers think of new stuff and try to make their games better.

Other than the pictures, the deadlock gameplay details have also been revealed.

Valve Deadlock Gameplay Leaks

Deadlock is a shooting game where you play as different heroes and battle against each other. You see the action from behind your character, and it’s 6 players versus 6 players on big maps with 4 paths to move on.

You get to use special powers and items during the game, and it’s a bit like those tower defense games. The setting is like a mix of fantasy and steampunk, with all sorts of creatures, magicians, and robots to play as or fight against. And just like in Bioshock Infinite, you can zoom around on floating rails to get around quickly.

GabeFollower spilled some details on their X page, describing Deadlock as having fast-paced, exciting gameplay similar to Dota 2, Team Fortress 2, Overwatch, Valorant, Smite, and Orcs Must Die. The characters you play are kind of like the ones from DOTA. The world reminds you of Half-Life with its fantasy and steampunk style.

Even though Valve is mostly known for Steam and the Steam Deck, they’re still making games. But since Deadlock doesn’t seem to be VR, it hints there might be more secret Valve games on the way.
