A couple of weeks ago Blizzard announced that the closed beta for Overwatch would be coming back in February with new features as well. Today, the publisher revealed the exact date as well as a list of the new features coming to the beta.

The changes were listed on Overwatch's blog

  • An all-new progression system
  • Two new maps, including a new game mode
  • Several hero balance updates
  • And a variety of Private Game updates, including full A.I. matches.

Players who had previous access to the beta will still have it with this new version. The blog notes that Blizzard is looking for more players to test out the new content and is encouraging newcomers to sign up for a chance to play the beta.
