Propaganda Team-kills Turok Team-kill Achievement

A controversial achievement award earned by killing a teammate in online play will now be removed from Propaganda Games' upcoming action title Turok, according to Wired.

The "Grab Bag" achievement, which involves killing "at least 1 creature, 1 enemy, 1 teammate, and yourself in the same round of a public match," will now be changed to include only enemy targets and suicide by a mandatory release-day patch.

Gamers were shocked last November when the award was announced, with many protesting a mechanic that would have rewarded players for unsportsmanlike play. Propaganda eventually responded to the outcry, pledging to remove the achievement if it became a problem.

Turok will ship to stores February 5, on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with a PC port following later this year.
