This is actually a pretty interesting thread, I didn't know that they could be changed under the right circumstances. Although if I really think about it - It wouldn't make sense to completely remove the ability to change or re-word a trophy name/description really. You have to leave room for human error and external factors that might influence a description or requirement.

 

I have the feeling that to be able to manipulate a trophy description/visual you have to do it under very specific guidelines/restrictions though. And I imagine there is a huge difference between changing how something is worded/represented and changing the game itself to reflect it. So I very much doubt that unless a trophy description or spelling and grammar are blatantly wrong, they likely won't give a shit if folks are angling for a change based on their own personal game experience with any given trophy requirement.

The "Lucky Spin" trophy in Plants vs Zombies was changed from requiring 3 diamonds (which was absurdly luck-based and obnoxious) to just 3 of a kind. Requirements and description changed, but image and name did not.

From what I remember, the name of 1 trophy on God of War (3?) was charged for being "offensive" or something.

 

It was Ascension. "Bros before Hos" was renamed. Other languages were not affected though.

The Battle Scars trophy in Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] title used to be different. It used to be Mark of a Veteran. I only know this because it's one of my trophy milestones.

I'm sure many here are already aware, but for those that aren't...  PSNP doesn't automatically pick up these changes.  If you see a difference like this between the list on here and the one on your console you should ask for a rescan of the list in this thread:

 

You can also see from the size of that thread that there's been many many MANY changes over the years, although only some of the changes are the sort that OP is asking about.

I remember the trophy "Growing Up" from the Assassins Creed Odyssey DLC pack "Legacy of the First Blade" changed name and description to "Blood of Leonidas".

 

More info here.

I’ve been under the impression that anything related to trophies on Sony server-side is under lock and key. 


Certain aspects of trophies appear to be unable to be changed (adding or removing a trophy to a published list retroactively or adding or removing a Platinum to a published list), but developers have been changing icons, descriptions, requirements of published trophies since very close to the beginning of trophies.

Wasn’t there some game where a trophy was added to the main list after the fact, and so the platinum is actually less rare than one of the trophies that is, now, a requirement for it?

 

I can’t recall the game, but I’m almost positive I remember that being discussed at one point? :hmm:

One of the more recent ones I remember is for Shadow of Mordor. The "Repaid in Blood" trophy was switched from online to a single player trophy when they shut the online down. I actually wish more companies would do this when they switch online services off.

I vaguely remember the same scenario, but also can't remember which game and couldn't find any mention in about 20 minutes of searching, so I went with "appear to be unable to be changed". If whatever delusion we're sharing ends up being true, it's definitely an exception.

aha - yes, that looks to be the one - the last trophy in the main list is actually rarer than the platinum it is a requirement for!

 

Good recall!

As soon as I seen your post it came right to me. I remember it being discussed also. Even though I have not played the game I remembered it.

ass creed odyssey had that like, additional feats dlc when before they were all out just had like, placeholder trophies that you couldnt obtain? so i guess that'd count, technically, for how bizarre that was

I remember one trophy from Plants vs Zombies changed because it was insanely hard, so they made it easier. If i'm not mistaken you needed to get 3 Diamonds in a Casino Machine. After the update, you only needed 3 of anyone. I don't have the game but I remember a youtuber (Mystic😄) telling the story

Dirt 5 changed the miles driven trophy from 10,000 to 1,000. Still a pain but more bearable

It's ridiculous that they chose to make it 10,000 miles in the first place. I just platinumed the game after completing all the DLC content : even with those, you still need like an hour or two of AFK grinding to get to 1000 miles. 10,000 miles would have been a colossal waste of time and electricity.

Seriously? I had the PS3 version since D1 and i don't remember any trophy change. And that image still appears in loading screens even on current-gen versions.

Yes it's true. I remember that old trophy list tile myself, it was there at launch for the PS3 version.

You can see it in this image: maxresdefault.jpg

SMITE has two trophy descriptions that have been changed at least once over the past couple of seasons. The spawn timers for two objectives changed and so they had to adjust the times for the trophies.

 

Flaming Speed

Your team killed the Fire Giant in Conquest within 30 seconds of it spawning. (Versus or Ranked)

 

Golden Greed

Your team killed the Gold Fury in Conquest within a minute and a half of it spawning. (Versus or Ranked)
