This Game Needs Offline Support!

I have noticed that Darktide needs a consistent internet connection to play this game. I understand that this game is focused on the cooperative play, but bot support for players is already a feature in this title. I believe there should be an ability to completely play Darktide offline without an internet connection with only the ability to play along side random cooperative bots. It is quite unfortunate to see the internet requirement in this amazing title when it was a feature seen in the past title, Vermintide 2. I have high hopes that this feature may become updated later in Darktide. I may suggest solely making the offline feature separate from the online portion of this game requiring you to create a new operator only for offline purpose.
