It's one of the first questions fans have when a new Call of Duty comes out: "How many maps does it have?"
And of course, they're interested in the immediately available maps, not the total number of maps that will eventually become available after multiple rounds of DLC.
Well, is a baker's dozen enough? Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey confirmed via Twitter that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will launch with 13 multiplayer maps. Those who purchase any of the Collector's Editions or buy the Season Pass will get an extra map, Atlas Gorge, bringing their total to 14. Condrey also confirmed that the Emblem Editor will return; not only can you create and customize your emblem, but it will actually appear on your exoskeleton suit when playing.
If there aren't enough maps at the time of launch, the multiplayer appeal takes a serious hit. That certainly won't be the case for the new CoD, though.
