Natural Selection 2 Alpha Date

The Natural Selection 2 Website has the promised announcement, which is a July 26 projected launch date for alpha testing of this upcoming action/strategy hybrid, available to all Special Edition pre-orders, on Steam. They describe the content of the alpha, and offer the following warning: "Something else you should know is that when we release alpha 1 at the end of this month, we are also discontinuing the NS2 Special Edition and all-black marine armor. It will no longer be available after this date, ever. Also, players that order NS2 after July 26th won't be able to play in the release date alpha." Thanks joao.

Part of me thinks they are shooting themselves in the foot with this - Alpha footage leaks to youtube - potential buyers see its a broken mess = don't buy the game.

Theres a reason game developers NEVER show anything before the final beta candidates where only balancing and bug finding are the goal.

I'm worried too, but on the other hand I don't mind if the community is small and made up only of people smart enough to realize what "alpha" actually means.
