Rise of the Tomb Raider Wins 2016 Writers Guild Award
Square Enix’s action-adventure game, Rise of the Tomb Raider has won the “outstanding achievement” award for video game writing at this year’s Writer’s Guild Awards. The game managed to overcome stiff competition from other impressive narrative-driven titles such as The Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and Pillars of Eternity for the honor.
Rise of the Tomb Raider had the merits of its plot judged by a panel from the Video Games Writers Caucus, in addition to members of the Writer’s Guild.
Considering the failure of the last Tomb Raider games, Rise of the Tomb Raider definitely was a step up from the initial reboot of Tomb Raider in almost every respect imaginable, and as such is well deserving of the award.
Rise of the Tomb Raider was released for Xbox One and Xbox 360 in November 2015. The PC edition arrived in January, while a PlayStation 4 version will come out later this year.
