They said something in an interview somewhere that there are a decent amount of maps and that in one playthrough, which usually last 30 missions or so, that you would not see the same map twice and that each map has random starting points so it'll be a little different as you move through a game. I think all the starting positions for everything are random every time.

My memory could be off but I believe they have somewhere around 90 maps. I'm not all that worried about seeing the same one twice.

I have not looked this forward to a game since maybe Dragon Age:Origins. Absolutely cannot wait for Tuesday.

80+ maps, different layouts for each map. Different alien spawns. Different starting spawn for you. Different alien patrols/reactions/squads. Probably more to it, but that's what I remember about it.

Looking forward to the game. A lot.

They've also said that you won't be able to research everything or build everything in your base in one playthrough. You'll have to tailor it to a certain play style each time.

Soon precious
