Deus Ex Wiki

Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition, often abbreviated as "GOTY Edition," is version of Deus Ex released on May 8, 2001. The GOTY Edition is currently the standard version of the game on digital distribution services such as Steam and Good Old Games.


The GOTY Edition makes the following changes compared to the initial retail release:

  • The 1.112fm patch is already included. Therefore, this patch does not need to be installed in order to use modifications or play multiplayer.
  • The unused TITAN.UTX texture file has been removed.
  • Some versions feature an additional CD with Soundtrack and modding tools.
  • Changes the startup banner.
  • Map changes as detailed below.

Additionally, the GOTY Edition comes with bonus supplemental content, including a special edition of the Midnight Sun newspaper.

It is possible to effectively convert the game from the retail edition to the GOTY Edition or vice-versa by swapping game assets, including map files.

Map file differences[]

The map files in the GOTY Edition are older versions of the maps as compared to the maps of the original retail release (i.e., Deus Ex version 1002f) and Deus Ex version 1003_F/I8. For this reason, various elements during the course of the game may differ between the GOTY and non-GOTY versions. It is possible to play the maps of the original retail release on the GOTY Edition of the game by swapping in the original map files. A collection of the original maps was made available on third party sites (see "External Links" section, below).

    • The Datacube in the NSF HQ basement containing the dirt on UNATCO is now on the top of the machine to the left of the cabinet, instead of being on top of the cabinet.
  • 06_HongKong_Helibase
    • The gas emitters for gassing the barracks are positioned differently and don't correctly kill a majority of the troops.
  • 06_HongKong_WanChai_Street
    • A vent was added to the elevator in Jock's building for players getting stuck in the shaft.
    • The Buddha statue mover is non-functional, breaking AI pathing.
  • 06_HongKong_Versalife
    • The second copy of the datacube with the "ALL_SHIFTS" login (06_Datacube31) on the middle cubicle floor is not present in the GOTY Edition map.
  • 06_HongKong_MJ12lab
    • The elevator from the Level 1 Labs to the Level 2 Labs no longer has a dummy keypad that prevents premature access to the Level 2 Labs.
    • The second copy of the datacube with the "DAMOCLES" password (06_Datacube12) near the Karkian carcass is not present in the GOTY Edition map.
  • 08_NYC_Street

  • 09_NYC_Ship
