There will also be new suit and weapon combinations, and each will get an Escalation around them. "Bangkok, Sapienza, Colorado and Hokkaido look and feel completely different with a new time of day and new custom music created by the composer for Season One, Niels Bye Nielsen". These maps have been "re-worked from the original settings with new gameplay opportunities, disguises, characters, challenges, gameplay mechanics, AI behaviour and HUD elements".
The new "Patient Zero" mission is described as following: "After the routine elimination of a target, a contingency plan to unleash a global pandemic is triggered and Agent 47 must race against the clock to prevent a virus from spreading". At the same time, IO Interactive will release a free update for the base game, including a redesigned interface, an update to Contracts Mode, lighting improvements, and upgrades for the Xbox One X version of the game.
