(Actually, it looked different yesterday. They updated the account management interface over night.)
I had heard mention of the preview weekend coming up, but was not sure I was on the list.
I dug through my email spam filter for a message from “firstname.lastname@example.org” (thanks to Bluelinebasher) and found the details.
It is our pleasure to invite you to the Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Preview Weekend taking place this Friday, August 22nd thru Monday, August 25th. Join thousands of your fellow players and experience the Age of Reckoning for the first time as you adventure through two tiers of content across three campaigns.
This is an invite-only event, so don’t delay in preparing for WAR and be one of the first to engage in the thrill and glory of RvR combat before the rest of the world!
