Can you NOT play this offline on PC? Only 1 character

Can you NOT play this offline on PC? I bought it on Xbox one and saw I could download it on the PC. I did so to find only 1 character is available offline.

Is there a fix?

I think you have to buy the PC version. At least in my case the game doesn’t allow me to download it. Different from Gears 4, where it says is mine and I can download it and play it in the PC and X1.

u have to connect online somehow to access your profile and sync your characters … u have to at minimum tether a mobile connection at the start of the game to get your profile up and running on pc, then u can disconnect from the net. that’s been the only way to get all your characters since the pc port came out.
