This weekend the studio will be hosting a test for the brand-new Revenant class from Friday, July 10th, through Monday, July 13th. Anyone who has pre-purchased the expansion can roll up the new class and try his or her hand at PvE and PvP with the character. In addition, ArenaNet will be rolling out its PvP Stronghold mode during this test for more fun.
The studio listed several other features that will be tested this weekend (staff weapons! Verati legends! Mist champions!) and promised that full beta weekend events will commence shortly.
