Developer To Change "Bros Before Hos" Trophy In Ascension
Adam Sessler was none too happy about it, and that helped spark a major backlash.
God of War: Ascension developer Sony Santa Monica has confirmed with Joystiq that one of the game's controversial Trophies, "Bros Before Hos," will be altered in an upcoming patch. The change only involves one letter but the result is far less inflammatory and certainly not controversial- "Bros Before Foes."
The studio gave GameSpot a statement concerning this change, which reads as follows:
"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.
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 is awarded when you defeat Fury, one of the game's female enemies. Of course, when Kratos beats her, he does so in typically brutal fashion (this is God of War, after all), which means he effectively smashes her face in. Yes, Fury is a twisted demon but she's still female, which is why Sessler and others got up in arms about the name of the Trophy. Did you have a problem with "Bros Before Hos?"
