Here are the Known Multiplayer Modes
A recent article in Newsweek Magazine that apparently details 12 competitive multiplayer modes was found and put online by Reddit user Skaterkid9606. The article mentions the following modes: Free for All, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Capture the Flag, Kill Confirmed, Search & Destroy, Search & Rescue, Uplink, Momentum, Gun Game, and Infected.
On the official Call of Duty site, the Advanced Warfare PS3 to PS4 upgrade has been revealed, too. The digital base game, Season Pass and additional digital content will all be transferable for free — but only within the “console family.” So, this means, you can’t upgrade from the PS3 version to the Xbox One, and so on.
It has been confirmed that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will have 13 multiplayer maps when it launches (14 if you have the Collector’s Edition), and it will feature the return of the Emblem Editor.

Sledgehammer Not Worried of Titanfall Ripoff Claims
If you’ve seen gameplay footage of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, chances are you might have compared it to Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall — which is understandable since Respawn is comprised of staff that created the Call of Duty franchise.
This sentiment hasn’t flown over Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey. Over on Twitter, Condrey lamented that “no matter how hard you try and try, people will always be convinced Advanced Warfare is a ripoff of Titanfall.” Condrey also adds, that the studio is not worried about these claims, too.
Sony has confirmed that the game on PlayStation 4 is now available for pre-load in the United States, Canada, and Latin America for everyone who pre-ordered through the PlayStation Store.
For PlayStation 3 owners, the pre-load will begin at 10:30am PT/1:30pm ET on Saturday, November 1.
Details on that and the Day Zero edition can be seen in this post.
