So the only new stuffs in this big box are the scoreboard (new version with river but without 20 anniversary easter eggs) and the river source (with road)?

The rest is the same as the previous big box, but with chopped buildings?

Would appear to be the case yes. 

While I feel the 2016 Big Box is one of the best big box configurations, if it were down to me I’d have added *something* for the Anniversary one. (Besides the updated artwork).  [Edit: I’d at least include the small anniversary tile bag, tile bag was main thing I wish came with BB2016]

On the plus side it’ll only be several extra months for the English language version to come out… ;)

I have a feeling that this will be the final 20th Anniversary surprise item. That means we got:
* 20 Anniversary Edition
* The Gift
* New draw bags
* Big Box (2021)

I’d probably include The Peasant Revolt in there too since it started the new art style even though I think they released late last year. I doubt anything else will be released by Christmas.

I don’t think that is entirely true. You can purchase the 20th anniversary edition on Amazon and it is sold and shipped by Amazon. So this isn’t some 3rd party offer, but also you literally can’t get it anywhere else yet.

EDIT: According to Asmodee USA, the 20th anniversary edition will be available this Friday, which if true, then friendly local game stores should be getting their copies this week. https://shop.asmodee.com/release-calendar

Thank you all for your input.
I finally received an answer from Kaissa, the Greek distributor, who sent me a pdf of the tiles included. So it was clear that all the tiles with city segments are "overflowing" with houses, clipped at the edges. The river has a different source and mouth tile.

Alas, I couldn't help it and as soon as I found out today that the Big Box was available in the stores, I rushed to get it.
All the tiles have round corners like the ones of the anniversary edition. There are also a few differences in individual tiles, like the cathedrals of the second expansion, but I haven't had time to go through all of the tiles...
The box looks "classier" and has no plastic dividers inside. I'm attaching a couple of pictures so that you can get an idea of what it looks like.
I'm still very much surprised that this edition was made available first in France and Greece, while there is no information about it at Cundco....

That is much nicer than the plastic big box insert.

Thanks for sharing the pics!

It does look a lot classier than previous big boxes.
Seems they copied the config more from BB4 rather than BB6, if they included 3 blank tiles...

Looks like I'll be ordering from France soon
