Like a pretzel, Episode 12 of The Cavalry is salty, twisted, and probably not good for you. Host Kevin Ellis aka Multizord is joined again by Stephen Parrish (Tankzord) and Matt Zornes (slambo) as they lay out their reactions to the returning Overwatch beta.

After giving their impressions on the reintroduction of the beta, the trio gives you a quick reminder that the Gosugamers Weekly EU and NA #3 is this weekend: http://www.gosugamers.net/overwatch

The crew then proceeds to hammer out all the new features in Overwatch, starting of course with Jeff Kaplan's beard wipe in his developer commentary video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41DLNBzp68Q

Next, things get purdy with a discussion on Overwatch's new player progression system, and its related cosmetics: http://us.battle.net/overwatch/en/blog/20034301/overwatch-beta-player-progression-preview-2-9-2016

Then it's onto the new Control Mode, Lijiang Tower and Nepal (nipple?), AI/Training Games, and Custom Game modes...whew.  It's a mouthful, or three.

Lastly, an entire episode could have been dedicated to the patch notes, but they went over it anyway! Here they are as well: http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20742184292#post-5

All of this can be summed up in this week's community content shoutout, featured here: http://www.overpwn.com/news/128-overwatch-beta-is-live-progression-system-all-new
