But it also brings us new rules and Pathfinding Circle types, here is more from the FFG release:

New rules, circle types, and tokens enhance the story as players can make use of Locked Door circles, Sniper Circles, Covert tokens, and more. Volatile rubble tokens represent new dangers on the battlefield as they explode and deal automatic attack successes against any character who passes through their circles. Operation: Hinansho also gives players all the tokens they need to play the Shogunate faction independently in any scenario and on any map in your Tannhäuser collection.
