Naughty Dog creative director and writer takes a jab at new Rise of the Tomb Raider box art
Yesterday afternoon Crystal Dynamics finally revealed their much anticipated plans for Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PS4 and along with it comes a whole bunch of extra goodies. Some of these features will be heading to the Xbox One, though the PlayStation VR bits could one day head to PC, but that’s up in the air for the time being. What we do know however is that Neil Druckmann, the creative director and writer behind the very successful Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, spoke his mind on Twitter last night.
Have a look at the obvious similarities between the new box art on PS4 for Rise of the Tomb Raider art work and that of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and it becomes rather obvious why he brought it up:
First Melania Trump and now this. 😉
