While the upcoming Outriders expansion won't be adding a new class, adding new skill trees for existing classes and introducing the Ascension System seem worthwhile additions that would allow for a more versatile progression.
With that said, here's everything you need to know about the PAX class trees and the Ascension System in Outriders Worldslayer
Outriders PAX class trees explained
PAX class trees add two new skill trees for each of the four existing Outriders classes. These are - Technomancer, Pyromancer, Trickster, and Devastator. It becomes available once you reach level 30 (or start a new character using level boost.)
Unlike your existing three skill trees, the nodes in PAX class trees are not unlocked via Class Points that you earn from leveling up. Instead, nodes in PAX class trees require PAX points, which you gain by generally progressing the game.
While this means that you may not be unlocking new nodes in your new class trees often, developer People Can Fly claims that every node in the PAX class trees is equivalent to major nodes in your existing class trees, thus making every node unique and essential in its own right.
These are the new skill trees for each class in Outriders Worldslayer -

The Ascension System in Outriders Worldslayer explained
The Ascension System tracks your progress after you have reached the level cap of 30. You will level up your Ascension rank by gaining XP. Every time you level up, you gain an Ascension point, which you can spend on one of the four Ascension attributes. They are - Brutality, Endurance, Prowess, and Anomaly.
