Sony Santa Monica Changes God of War: Ascension ‘Bros Before Hos’ Trophy Name on Launch Day

The controversial God of War: Ascension trophy "Bros before Hos" will be renamed to "Bros Before Foes" via a day-one update, according to a statement sent to Joystiq by developer Sony Santa Monica. The trophy caused a bit of a controversy last week when Adam Sessler and other complained about its sexist nature. Players earned the trophy in the game by surviving a certain event involving "Furies." Furies are female creatures that protagonist Kratos encounters at a certain point in the game (we don't want to say any more than that to avoid spoilers).

"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," Sony Santa Monica's statement to Joystiq noted. "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."
