I noticed when I returned to Detroit that some odd things had changed, but this was a very cursory look, so I don't know for sure:

  • Broken walls were repaired.
  • At least some computer terminals were un-hacked, even though I'd gotten every one available on the first run. Door panels were always still hacked.
  • The available areas were slightly different - i.e. the police station was locked up the second time but a new area was available as part of the main quest.
  • No new items seemed to be available in the areas common to both visits.

What, specifically, changes in Detroit and Heng Sha between the first and second visits to those locations?

  • In general:
    • All objects returned to default positions.
    • All broken objects regenerated.
    • All bodies removed (☠ and Zzz).
    • Some new items spawn.
    • Merchants restock
  • Detroit
    • Some areas locked off (police station, Sarif HQ main entrance)
  • Hengsha
    • The Hive is locked down.
    • Hung Hua hotel is almost empty.
    • Belltower guards looking for you.
    • Alice Pod Gardens merchant moves to Youzhao district.
  • Do you happen to know if terminals are reset to the unhacked state, or was I just imagining that?

  • A couple get un-hacked. Not sure if it is a bug or scripted.

  • I think some break-able walls (such as those in the sewers) get repaired, although the goodies behind them aren't regenerated.

  • The walls count as "broken objects".
