Controversial Assassin's Creed Odyssey Trophy Renamed on PS4

By Rebecca Smith, 1 month ago
When the second episode of Assassin's Creed Odyssey's "Legacy of the First Blade" DLC was released, one of the achievements caused a bit of controversy. Growing Up required players to start a family by having a baby with a partner of the opposite sex. However, for players who wanted a non-romantic storyline, or who were having a relationship with a partner of the same gender, it meant their choices no longer mattered. Ubisoft was seeking to make amends by changing a "cutscene and some dialogue" in "Shadow Heritage", but now it seems they're going one step further and changing the name and description of the achievement too.

Shadow Heritage

On PlayStation 4, the trophy has been renamed to Blood of Leonidas, and the description has been changed to "Continue the bloodline". The change seems to suggest that the story now has more to do with a duty to continue the Leonidas line, rather than the player's desire to start a family, and is certainly no longer a perceived criticism of alternative lifestyles or orientations.

At the moment, the achievement has yet to be altered, but it has happened before and will likely happen now to bring the platforms in line with one another.
