I don't want to play PvE content in order to eventually reach a plateau where I feel "safe" playing PvP content. That's *EXACTLY* an MMO grind. That's exactly what I don't want.

You people are so deluded by Chris Roberts' name that you don't see what's right in front of you- this is an MMO. Considering he's focusing so hard on PVP, there's no reason to delude yourself into thinking that this "Offline" play is going to be anything but an MMO without other players. IE: Empty. Completely empty.
Describing it as an MMO is only slightly more appropriate than describing neverwinter nights 1 or 2 as one because in addition to the lengthy single player campaign, mod tools, and ability to host your own servers they will also be hosting a persistent world themselves.

Those who don't want the persistent world aspect and aren't particularly interested in multiplayer then, for fans of the wing commander games at least, there is still the lengthy campaign. While we'll have to wait to see how robust the mod community ends up being to say how much that might add to the value for single-player fans out there, it should at least have some appeal to those who enjoy playing around with modding tools themselves as well.
