The War of the Roses Gets "Permanent"

Paradox Interactive has apparently decided that The War of the Roses is already a thing, because they announce they have created a "permanent franchise team" to support the just-launched multiplayer melee combat game. Here's word:

With thousands of players duking it out on the server battlefields of War of the Roses, Paradox has officially confirmed plans to form a permanent franchise team for War of the Roses which will be led by Executive Producer Gordon Van Dyke. The game has enjoyed an enthusiastic reception by reviewers and gamers alike.

“There is no doubt that War of the Roses has been an ambitious project for us,” noted Gordon Van Dyke. “The game’s reception from players has exceeded expectations and we are truly grateful for the continued support from the community. We’ll continue to improve the game and add substantial content for all players.”

In War of the Roses, players don the role of a knight and are pitted against one another in an uphill squad battle to control the coveted crown of England. With steel on steel clashing and arrows and blots grazing past players, War of the Roses unleashes fury on a variety of battlefields in painful, real-time combat.

To celebrate the successful launch, Paradox has also announced a contest seeking the most action-packed screenshot of a battlefield image. The top two winners will each reach a private 32-player server for three months along with five copies of the game. Additional prizes will also be awarded.

War of the Roses officially launched on October 2nd, 2012 and is currently available now PC for $29.99. Buy the game here: http://www.waroftherosesthegame.com/buy

Does this have any single-player content, or is it just multiplayer? If there was some kind of single-player mode (even bots), I'd be interested.
