There are 2 different Single Player Modes and I believe 4 different MP Modes. Both Single Player Modes can be played with up to 4 people cooperatively. Honestly, I am looking forward to this. Seems different and unique enough to stand on it's own and hold us over for a bit. Also.... It's only $39.99 on Xbox ONE.
If you need someone to JAM with on Xbox LIVE, send me a FRIEND REQUEST with an attached MESSAGE letting me know the reason for the request.

The game does not have a "single player" mode. The mode you are talking about is called "cooperative play," which is not the same as single play. Once other players join you in any mode, it is no longer a "single player" mode. If this were true "single player" then you could play Garden Ops alone... but you can't.
Nope, you didn't. Perhaps you didn't realize it, but all the plants and zombies in that mode are actual players on Xbox Live. 3 other players helped you, and 4 other players were playing against you. That's not SINGLE player. It is cooperative and team-based play.
For it to be TRUE single player, you would have the option of not logging into Xbox Live at all, and all the other characters would be played by bots. That option does not exist at the moment.
I'm not bothering to link this - but I did read there's a mode to be played a l o n e , and know that I did in fact play this game alone with computer AI and yes it was " connected " online as I always am . Parted with the game a few days after just as I will with this thread .
Yes, there is a single player mode but only on Xbox One. It involves defending a garden from increasingly more challenging waves of zombies. You control a character in FPS mode and can plant assets in strategic places to assist with dispatching zombies like in tower defense. I have played this mode a few times, so I can most certainly verify it exists. As others have mentioned, you need to have the online accounts set up, but I apparently already had them and I'm not even an online gamer by any means.
That said, the single player mode is pretty boring. The game shines in online multiplayer. Again, I'm not an online gamer and also not a big fan of FPS games, but this game is a rare exception for me. It's terrific fun.
Yeah, no matter what you need XBOX live. There's no actual single player mode. However, you can create a Garden Ops game and mark it private, and play by yourself. It's okay, but a lot less fun than the normal multiplayer modes. I play garden ops alone in order to complete specific character challenges that are nearly impossible in normal multiplayer (kill X amount of very specific zombie types)...if you beat it, you can get a decent amount of coins...but depending on how good you are and what plant you're playing, it can be difficult to beat. That said, I highly recommend this game. The multiplayer is fast and fun - you won't feel completely overmatched, and it has all of the interesting costume customizations you could ever want (seriously, there's a bazzillion things to put on your characters to make them different). Also, if you don't like playing as the plants or zombies...use RB to switch teams during the character select screen.
