This Is Not a Game
This Alpha release is not a game. It's not even a demo. It's an early stepping-stone that will be a part of a series of alpha releases leading up to our eventual demo, which will include NPCs, missions, expanded crafting, base building, and more. So, yes, we're talking bout an alpha for a demo!

We want to make sure we aren't over-promising anything when it comes to Gears. We've been pretty clear about detailing what to expect in our first alpha, and you can find a summary with some helpful information on our Early Access Information Page.
