Even as there seems to be a lot of hero shooters on the horizon, few are quite as anticipated as Blizzard’s Overwatch. And just to wet players’ appetites that much more, the closed beta is coming back.

Starting back up February 9th, the closed beta will feature a host of changes. While Blizzard is holding off on the full patch notes until next week, the developer posted on the game’s website just what players can expect. This round of testing will feature an all-new progression system, two new maps, a new game mode, several hero balance updates, and an update to the private matches including full A.I. matches.

Any that have already participated in the Overwatch closed beta are invited back, and Blizzard is hoping to get even more people into the fray. You can sign up for the beta here.
