    It's not a single player version, they are releasing a single player game before they make the separate MMO. We'll find out their reasons later, but we've got hints that the single player game that we get this year will be extremely mod friendly, so we can have new content all the time while we wait for an MMO to come out.

    a lot of discussion about single player version has already been made on this thread
    viewtopic.php?f=12&t=99

    and considering they're a new company (with probably not a lot of extra money) starting a new franchise in a poor economy, I think it makes a lot of sense

    it saves them a lot of money and a lot of time, it gets a little money rolling in and allows them to develop tools to make the mmo development faster and easier

    And of course it keeps the old Mythos/Hellgate community together.

    I don't think this would last two years without anything new from Runic.

    Are single player games really that bad? Personally I don't see a problem with them. Would Chrono Trigger be better as an MMO? Should Mount And Blade have high level characters screwing around and raiding all the towns?


    Also, I played Hellgate London singleplayer.

    HGL is a good example on a game that was better in multiplayer imo. The SP-part lacked a lot of content and it was nice to have the community around. But i feel that games can do equally good as single player as many does Multiplayer. Then again I am a SinglePlayer guy. Mostly because i tend to play a lot less than most people. Or atleast i get that feeling since most people seem to burst away in levels quick as hell while i knd of gets stuck at the lower ones :P

    IMO it makes sense for them to release a single player game first; primarily for financial reasons. However this also gives us something to chew on so that 1-the community doesn't dissolve and 2-they have more money and time with which to create an mmo... none of this rushing games out business.

    The last thing anyone wants is for runic games to follow flagships path.

    And if they allow people to mod the game, then expect an LAN option soon :P

    Hello!

    I have follow Travis from fate through the beta testing of mythos and would like to share my thoughts on this new game.
    back when mythos was still in development i ask for singleplayer and they all voted against it

    anyways, i am big on creating mods and would like to know if there's any kind of multiplayer for this new game?
    at least co-op? the one thing that the players over at fate wanted was a multiplayer option.

    here's my wishlist for the new singleplayer game;

    singleplayer (good story / mods support)
    multiplayer similar to titan quest "with" close.net (small networking game)
    person connecting to the main host should download the content automatically to client. (mods)

    of course the mmorpg version will have more players/events/exclusive contents/etc.

    btw, have they come up with a title for the game yet?
