‘Bros before Hos’ Trophy in God of War: Ascension Getting a Name Change in Future Patch

March 11, 2013Written by Jason Dunning

Something that stirred up controversy last week was the inclusion of a trophy in God of War: Ascension called ‘Bros before Hos’, which is unlocked after you ‘Escape the Fury Ambush‘ and stomp the face of a female fury “to bloody pieces.”

Sebastian and Dan talked about this in great length with the Friday Daily Reaction, arguing both sides of the case, ultimately coming to the conclusion that “it is in a game called God of War where you play as a dick, so get over it.”

As it turns out, Sony Santa Monica has decided to alter the name of the trophy to ‘Bros before Foes’ in an upcoming patch (1.01 is already out). To find out why they decided to do this, here’s an official statement from them:

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.

What do you think of their decision to change the name of the trophy? Let us know in the comments below.
