Ah, I assumed that even though the beta players can't access more than one city that they might be able to see the whole world map. Again, no real way to confirm or deny this, but it was an assumption on my part.
Basically, the answer is still "wait and see." Either SE will offer more info before the CE is released, or they won't.
