Patch renames God of War's 'Bros Before Hos' trophy

A day one patch will rename the achievement to 'Bros Before Foes'

The "Bros Before Hos" trophy rewarded to players in God of War: Ascension has caused some upset among critics. Players, however, should not have the same issue, according to developer Sony Santa Monica, who told Joystiq that a patch will rename the trophy to "Bros Before Foes," in time for the game's commercial release tomorrow.

"The text was offensive to some members of our community and impacted their enjoyment of the game," Sony Santa Monica told Joystiq. "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."

While this hardly excuses the initial decision of including the controversial trophy, it is a step in the right direction and should prevent unwanted, heated discussion among God of War fans. I can understand why Adam Sessler and other reviewers were bothered by its inclusion. I am happy that it won't sour my experience, because it simply won't be a part of it.
