As it turned out, yesterday's patch for
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed,
about which we
earlier, not only added a new character, but also changed an already existing one - General Winter.
Some users on the official SEGA forums
have expressed their dissatisfaction with
the fact that his tank uses symbolism of the USSR and, in the end, SEGA decided to replace it.
The vehicle seems to have gone through a change of regime - now instead of a hammer and sickle, players see black and red stars.
It is not known whether this is due to the unfolding scandal surrounding
Company of Heroes 2,
which General Frost is from, or not, but the changes were made, apparently, in order to avoid further dissatisfaction.
It has been
that this was done in order to address the political and cultural context in the game.
