Path of Exile
This week on Betawatch, we say farewell to Divina, which officially launched on Wednesday with festivities and bonuses including new minipets and mounts and an ongoing event in celebration of the Olympics.

Mists of Pandaria, the World of Warcraft expansion that's been tickling the Betawatch list for many months now, finally has a launch date: September 25th. If you can't wait and are in the mood for something with a hint of Blizzard about it, try Diablo-inspired Path of Exile, which is running another open stress test starting today. If you want something more MMORTS-flavored and can wait another week, you can sign up for End of Nations' next beta event.

We've also added Lord of the Ring's Online's Riders of Rohan to our closed beta list. Ride for ruin and all that!

Finally, PlanetSide 2 released a new beta trailer and clarified the beta invitation process. All this and more in the complete Betawatch roundup behind the break!

Open testing phase
Massively considers a game to be in open testing if it has open, public signups and plans for a server wipe before its official launch. Self-described "open beta" MMOs that have soft-launched with functioning real-money cash shops will not be listed.

Closed testing phase
