Default Should KB have multiplayer?

Should this game have multiplayer?

As far as I understand there is no mp in the original release but it is being planned for expansions.

I don't quite understand why? A strong storyline driven rpg with limited tactical combat doesn't scream multiplayer to me. Doesn't quite make sense. Unless it is well done it won't attract a horde of fans.

So I guess I'm against it for now but I'm willing to be convinced.

The release version of King's Bounty: The Legend does not have multiplayer mode.
KB is a very story-oriented RPG and it is hard to imagine multiplayer for this one now.

I voted YES!

This was probably the biggest thing that upset me when I found out it wasn't in the game. I was hoping for another game to play with the wife like we do Heroes.

Now I'm a bit more upset based on Anatoly's response. We've been hearing that multiplayer was going to be introduced in the expansion, but unless I'm reading it wrong, he's making it sound like they have no plans for that.

Multiplayer = Longevity
People will get bored quickly of playing by themselves.

With RPG's I prefer single player.

Having just finished the original KB I'm really having trouble seeing it as an MultiPlayer game. Maybe an alliance mode, but competitive? How would it work?

Longevity is provided by variety, not by MP.

And how much longevity can a game have where you just do a few quests, fight a few fights, and then you're done? It will be the same thing every game unless they provide tons of different scenarios. If they are anything like Nival, which like me you know all too well, this will come with a sparce amount of maps to play. Then what?

And frankly, what's the worry if they do include it? No one will force people to play multiplayer. Just like Heroes (sorry to keep going back to that), you have single player and multiplayer. Something for everyone.

Oh, and I'd be perfectly fine with an Alliance mode. That would be cool.

Multiplayer ? If you want that why not just go play HoMM 5 ? About the same, besides i think the entire King's bounty system has been worked towards singleplayer and not multiplayer nor coop.
I'd rather see them focus on adding more stuff for the singleplayer campaign:
New areas, new quests, monsters, troops.. other stuff..

Im with KingImp nobody is going to force you to play MP, I would love to see MP added in an expansion because more often then not when they leave out MP they dont make up for it by adding more content

I voted No, and for those claiming what would it hurt, it wouldn't be required... Well it would need developers to work on it, and adding it isn't just a couple lines of code, but a whole development project in and of itself. Time better spent to increase longevity and playability and versatility for single player mode.
