Sony to rename controversial trophy in God of War: Ascension
“Bros Before Hos” now “Bros Before Foes”.
Sony has announced that they will be rolling out an update that renames one of the trophies that managed to stir up quite an uproar when it was discovered from the initial wave of reviews. The trophy earlier known as “Bros Before Hos” will be renamed to “Bros Before Foes”.
“We have created and will soon push out a patch for God of War: Ascension that alters the title of one of the game Trophies. The text was offensive to some members of our community and impacted their enjoyment of the game,” read a statement issued by Sony Santa Monica.
“We are endlessly committed to ensuring that our community can fully enjoy the experiences the team has created. As such, we’ve addressed the feedback and amended the Trophy in question.”
The trophy was awarded to players after Kratos commits a brutal finishing move on a female character. Although the God of War series is renowned for gory disembodiment and evisceration, awarding a trophy which polarizes the genders is pushing it a bit. The update will be avaiable on launch day, which is March 12th in the US, and on the 13th in Europe.
