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.

After a relatively quiet time in beta-land last week, Betawatch has plenty of news for this round! We've had launches and beta status changes all over the place! For starters, Working as Intended had some good news for Dawntide fans this week: The company's sandbox title is scheduled for an October 1st launch.

Prius Online officially launched Wednesday, shedding its open beta status and celebrating the event with an Alienware laptop giveaway. The open beta list isn't shrinking much, however, as Dragon Nest added one more to the group when open beta began on Tuesday. Nexon is offering plenty of open beta events to get people playing, so be sure to check out the news on that. Dawn of Fantasy joins our open beta list this week as well.

Nadirim launched this week as well, jumping straight from closed beta to the live version, so if you didn't make it into closed beta, the doors are well and truly open now!

Finally, Perfect World has been gearing up for the closed beta of Rusty Hearts for a while, and it began on the 27th.

Follow along after the jump for the updated Betawatch list!
