Someone found a picture of the case front, and it saids "INTERNET REQUIRED". Can someone from Ubisoft answer if this game is always online for single player? It`s a totally deal breaker for any purchase of mine.

It has been confirmed that you can fight bots and play the campaign offline, so don't worry.

I add my totally subjective and personal perspective now: I think if you are not interested in multiplayer, the game might not be for you or at least not worth the full price. We get a campaign, sure, and what we have seen so far looks nice, but it is likely to be more of an extra which gives the whole experience more context and some lore. The focus is clearly on multiplayer.
Thats just a personal opinion and of course i can only speculate about the campaign.

Steep also said INTERNET REQUIRED, and you couldn`t even play solo mode offline

Internet required for online is the general rule for anything with singleplayer

just saw this today, they just KILLED for honor. First they shot themselves in the genitals with the removal of splitscreen, and now they confirmed the game will be a RENTED SERVER so they can un-plug the power anytime they feel the game servers is getting empty, perhaps in 2-3 years. I really dont know why companies do this suicidal decision of having an always required internet connection, maybe for a couple of reasons:

its because of piracy? just implement denuvo instead

its because of hackers? has anything to do with hackers

its because of a needed emergency backdoor when the upkeep of the game servers gets too high to maintain after a couple of years without people playing the game? probably

do they even think about the single-player? obviously not

do companies that use this method suck? i have no words to describe my hate

These games got cracked looong after release. Denuvo did its job.
