There doesn't seem to be much in the way of a component upgrade. The tokens seem better and there's new, shiny box art but the map is still stuck in 1980. For me the important thing would be any possible revisions to the rules or official variants. Perhaps Tresham has introduced some tweaks to make the game better.

The target audience either has the AH edition, and/or the Mega edition, both of which have a nicer looking map. Further, Gibson doesn’t have rights to the Western expansion. There haven several rules tweaks over the years which make the game better, which it sounds like this game doesn’t have.
