From Blizzard:

This initial phase of the closed beta will include ongoing changes to previously-announced MP units as well as the introduction of a new Protoss unit - the Adept. Players with access to the closed beta will be able to check out PVP multiplayer action as well as Archon Mode, a cooperative/competitive MP mode, where two players share and control one base/army against another opponent or team.

In addition to ongoing updates to previously-announced MP units, we're excited to debut:

A New Protoss Unit: The Adept

 · The Adept is a core gateway unit with a ground-only ranged attack and normal movement speed.

 · The Adept has an ability that sends out a mirror image of itself, and after a fixed duration, the unit teleports to the location of its duplicate.
  · The duplicate can independently move around, but cannot attack or be attacked, and does not impede upon the actions of the main unit.

New Maps:

 · Ruins of Seras - Seras is an ancient temple in a mountainous region of Aiur, the Protoss homeworld. It currently stands in ruins, surrounded by an encroaching jungle.

 · Lerilak Crest - Named after the Dark Templar who discovered it, this is an area on a Dark Templar world, embedded by xel'naga ruins.

 · Orbital Shipyard - Floating high above Korhal IV, this is a Terran starship repair platform.
