So the BBG page says this game is 1-4 but the kickstarter page says 2-4 and I can't find a thread that address this discrepancy. Does anyone know if this has a solo element?

It is primarily a multiplayer game. They hint there could be a solo option but there was zero commitment to that.

They plan on releasing the beta rules and some point during the campaign, wait for when that happens.

A bud of mine pointed out to me that the Conan KS had a SG for an app. It was unlocked at $3.3 million.

There will be some solo elements:

"I'm not aware of any plans for a completely solo game mode, nor is it obvious how one would work. It would basically be a whole new game. Apparently there are some solo scenarios though."
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/806316071/mythic-battle...

"there is no solo game mode per se in Mythic Battles. There are, however, some scenarios that are designed to play solo."
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/806316071/mythic-battle...

"there is no single player or co-op "mode". Instead, a small number of scenarios are designed specifically to work as single player or co-op games."

As far as I remember, in his first Stream, Leo mentionned to put one coop scenario in the corebox, in addition to a coop scenario which is already plan for one of the incomming expansion, which has not been shown at the moment.

I want to back this game, but currently waiting for more information on the co-op and solo scenarios before I put down my pledge.

"Additional Scenario 1: Hydra Hunt
This is a solo/co-op scenario for 1-3 players."

The solo/co-op thing was a mixture. We've had a number of authors working on several campaigns for months now, and some of them chose to include co-op elements in their scenarios. If the scenario is players vs game then that can be run solo.
During the KS there were a number of people asking for solo/co-op versions.
What we've done is add a co-op/solo scenario as one of two extra ones in the core box. That gives more variety there which is nice. The rest of the stuff was in place already.
Overall, we have 6 Co-op/solo scenarios. 1 in the core box, and 5 in the campaign book. 4 of these are from a specifically co-op/solo campaign.
So now you know

The campaing changed a bit so regarding solo/coop this is the current state:

1 coop-scenario for 1-3 players in the core box (hydra hunt)
4 coop-scenarios for 1-2 players in the titans box addon
6 coop-scenarios for 1-4 players in the campaign book addon

Solo is playing the coop ones alone.

It's good to specify the differences between SOLO versus SOLITAIRE in gaming. These may not be definitive, but over time I have come to think of them in this way...

SOLO = "one player playing one character against the game".

SOLITAIRE = "one guy playing all the characters by himself". The solitaire mode could be a scenario, a co-op, or literally anything.

No, just the same solo/coop scenarios highlighted before. It is likely there will be more fan-made content along the same lines post-release.
