Betawatch: August 28th - September 11th, 2009

Shawn Schuster

Welcome to Betawatch, Massively's weekly report on the state of MMO betas. In each installment, we'll report everything from the latest open betas, closed betas and even alphas in one convenient place. Plus, we'll make sure to include as much info on each game's current status, including projected release dates (if known) and links to the sign-up forms to get yourself into that beta you've been seeking.

Considering the fact that our team was mostly indisposed last weekend, it's been two weeks since our last Betawatch. Not to fret though, as our new list for this week will catch you up on what you may have missed. We had Aion enter their open beta, as we said goodbye to three other games: Fallen Earth, DDO and Ultima Online's Stygian Abyss. While only UO and DDO actually reached launch stage, Fallen Earth's release was pushed to September 22nd, with its pre-order headstart going on now. Follow along after the jump for the complete list.
