I hate online multiplayer, because there are certain people who will do nothing else all day then become "good" in it.. (no matchmaking here) And with the tiny amount of Touch-Rifts around the world, you will A) wait for a match forever, or B.) have horrible latency because the other player is in New Zealand etc.

    I've never had problems finding matches and I'm from the UK.

    The game is really built around multiplayer. There is single player horde mode though, and the target practise. Don't expect a campaign since that's not what the game is made for :)

    There are lots of other single player shooters out there though.

    Maybe it would be possible to add AI instead of an actual player then, I do have to say the matching system got better since the last update, at least seems like it.. But there are still certain times throughout the day when there will be nobody online

    This game has the potential to hit Legendary Status if they implement a proper and thorough single player campaign. Taking over the Wild West? There are decades of good storylines, both fiction and non-fiction, to inspire a single player campaign.

    One of the best game ever lol, adding single player would remind me of this!

    Dead and Buried is multiplayer??  Shows how much I played it (once).  I honestly thought it was a gallery shooter this whole time.

    Yeah more single player options!!
    It's good they added single player in horde mode, but I don't really like horde mode type of games.. .
    Would love to be able to do draw championships, shootouts and robbery missions against the AI!

    @mckracken  -   I'm curious what you had in mind, exactly?  Were you already aware that the game was recently updated to allow for single-player horde mode, but you'd like to see something else, different from that?

    I want a full story mode for each Avatar. Live out a campaign for a bartender, gambler, etc.

    I need to walk in to the middle of Tombstone and (re)make some history.

    Right now the game is more "League of Legends," where every character technically has a backstory but the game is all about the multiplayer action. But the game needs to be more StarCraft, with individual campaigns for all.

    Agree. I will really enjoy a SP campaign, they have all the technical background, nice environment, weapons management, etc. they just have to add the storyline and game mode. It could be a very good western game.

    I agree with this, when I installed this I was very excited but then somewhat disappointed to find it mostly centered around multiplayer. I have just never been a big MP guy.  I will have to try single player horde mode and see how I like that, getting tired of the target range...
    I agree with some others though, a nice long campaign type of SP action would be fantastic.

    I wouldn't be opposed to a single player mode but the fact they gave it to us for free at touch launch (I think it's 46 bucks CAD now) I don't think the dev should be obligated.

    IMO I think it's great the way it is (wish I could bump up the graphics is all). If they came out with a single player campaign that was old west (with a sort of locomotion (traditional would be nice)) I would throw them 45 bucks CAD for sure. Pretty sure it would have to be a whole different game though.

    I love shooters, so yeah I would support that.

    I gave single player horde mode a try, and while it was fun getting away from the target range, it kind of gets old fairly quickly with just more and more zombies coming at ya.
    A SP campaign style system with objectives would certainly be so nice.

    Perhaps I should give Onward a try, it may fit the bill for me for what I am looking for in a shooter.
