Might be too soon to ask,

but does anyone know if the new release will be compatible with the old expansions? I have seen nothing to the contrary, but also the info on the Asmodee site is, shall we say, sparse.

thx in advance,
jeff

That will all depend on if the map coordinates are the same, I suppose.

It's only the map and the directory that are needed from the base game for the supplements if I remember correctly.

Compatible,

as in, "If I own one of the earlier "expansions" to this game, will it expand the new version of the game in the same way it expanded the old game."

I initially thought the "expansions" were just that, expansions and would require the base game to play. Now, in my research, it appears as if the expansions were actually stand alone games, with everything you need to play contained within the "expansion." They don't appear to require the base game to play. But there is such limited information, it's hard to tell.

My research a while ago indicated that the old expansions were originally released as expansion/standalone games, but that later they were also released as pure expansions that required the base game. So just because one title works for one person doesn't mean that title would work for someone else.

I agree there's not enough information.
