Tomb Raider Global Brand and Creative Directors do AMA interview on Reddit

It’s been two weeks since the reboot Tomb Raider hit store shelves. We reviewed the game and it was likable for many reasons; earlier this week, we wrote a Q&A discussing things about the game that wouldn’t fit in a review.
