We also reported that both the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition were developed by two different teams, and not by Crystal Dynamics itself.

Now, following Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition video comparisons from sites like IGN and Gamersyde, Square has passed a statement on to Videogamer to stress that both versions feature the same assets.

“Both Xbox One and PS4 gameplay run at native 1080p,” a company rep wrote. “The assets from one platform to the other are the same as all source assets were shared 1:1 (textures, models, particles, etc.).”
