Or can it be played offline?
Also I get the sense its a cross between Borderlands 2 (With what appears to be skill tree's from the images) and Skyrim or Demon souls.... am I right?

it's more of an action game than an rpg.
it's not an mmo. it has a dwarf, an elf chick and a ranger dude you can play as. you pick one of the 3 and play either by yourself or with 2 other people online. there are slight rpg elements like skill trees and different character levels but it's not a deep system like a full rpg.
It's a co-op action RPG that can be played single player. It's a short play through without too much depth or complexity, but fairly fun while it lasts.
I have a Let's Play on my YT channel below, if you're curious.
