Rubi Bayer, @@rubi_

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.

Sony Online Entertainment announced that beta testing for DC Universe Online will be extended, thanks to a delayed launch. The game will get a few more coats of polish and be ready in early 2011. Perpetuum is moving to our open beta list, and everyone can check it out firsthand beginning on the 18th.

If you're still chasing one of the magically-reproducing Vindictus beta keys, worry no more. The game is going into true open beta on the 13th, which means that everyone can participate, key or no.

Our final addition to the Betawatch list will make a lot of fans happy: Rift: Planes of Telara is taking closed beta signups. More information on beta dates is coming, but for now check out the forum post for all the signup details!

Follow along after the cut for the current Betawatch list.
