    There will be a singleplayer campaign at launch (not in the beta), yes.. But the focus is on multiplayer so it won't be as extensive as M&B SP.

    Do you know how many hours the single player will be?

    As long as you take to complete it, I don't know any details.

    It's multiplayer and singleplayer. Singleplayer will be available at launch as far as I know.

    If you don't know the answer to something and aren't willing to look it up, you shouldn't reply as if you know something for certain. =P

    The game will launch with a single player campaign which is built around teaching you how to play the multiplayer. I wouldn't expect an epic, long, amazing campaign (though you never know), but it does exist. My inclination is that it will essentially serve as an extended narrative tutorial. But we'll see, they may surprise us.

    I was expecting a single player campaign since they mentioned it in early interviews, but when I did look it up in their new page both at paradoxplaza.com and the games' own website it's now listed as multiplayer only, so I went on and asked about it on the General Discussion section of the Beta forums, and from what I understood of Robin's, the leader programmer of the game, answer the single player campaign was removed from the final product. I don't know if I could disclose this information since it was posted in the beta forums, but as the game is widely listed as multiplayer only now both in the retailers and official pages I believe there is no problem.

    ProjectAngel, if you're reading this I'd like to ask you to update the FAQ thread with a more clear and updated answer to this matter.

    Well I think it's been said all along that the singleplayer content in the game is geared towards getting the player ready for multiplayer.

    (Apologies to Montandon for the sharp words. )

    Going by their recent video, there is still a single player feature but it is essentially the multiplayer game using bots, mirroring historical battles of the time. So you might get some setup, maybe some varying objectives from standard multiplayer, but I don't think it counts as a 'campaign' per se.

    Which is too bad honestly, a campaign would've been fun. Still, I'm getting it for the multiplayer, so it's not a game-breaking loss.

    I hope the bots in this game are smarter than Mount and Blades

    Don't bash on the bots! They are deadly if they mob you!

    I don't see why they wouldn't eventually make a single player campaign, but maybe I'm just being overly optimistic...

    Its a multiplayer focused game. There's really no need for them to make any kind of singleplayer campaign later on.

    I've also stated a few times that M&B (Which this is clearly inspired by) is owing its success to 50 percent singleplayer, 50 percent modding, and 50 percent multiplayer ;-)
    Its more about longevity than anything else in my mind, but then again, War of the Roses has a different focus, whether we like it or not :-)

    If they aren't launching with a singleplayer campaign I wouldn't expect one unless the game is very successful, and then they might sell it as an expansion or something (with multiplayer stuff of course).

    Honestly, in terms of free stuff/DLC going forward, I'd rather see them work on adding more maps/gear to the multiplayer than spending a lot of time on a campaign.

    That would mean 150% you should have 100% so you mean 33.3(repeated)% for all 3 things

    There is a single player campaign, but it's the same maps as the multiplayer so it's rather short.

    If you're not into multiplayer, I think you'll be dissappointed. I'd say the single player is more as a gangplank into the multiplayer or as a distraction when you don't feel like multiplayer.
