As if the Survivor: Island of the Idols finale wasn't adrenaline-pumping enough, fans got their heart rates right back up as host Jeff Probst revealed a look at Season 40, Survivor: Winners at War.

Coming in February, the best of the best return to attempt what only one person has done before: become a repeat Sole Survivor!

Two-time winner Sandra Diaz-Twine returns with 19 fellow Sole Survivors, including her co-mentor on Island of the Idols, Boston Rob Mariano—and his wife Amber Mariano

Fierce competition and family rivalry aside, the game will also feature some serious challenges. Jeff announced the return of the Edge of Extinction and a new twist: Fire Tokens, coins that can be used to purchase advantages and resources in the game.

As if being crowned Sole Survivor a second time—complete with the $1 million prize—wasn't enticing enough, Jeff told the Season 40 castaways that they will be competing for an astounding $2 million instead!

As Season 35 winner Ben Driebergen says, "My competition here is the greatest of the great." When it's winners vs. winners, who will be able to outwit, outplay, and outlast... again?

Stay tuned for more information about Survivor: Winners At War premiering Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access
