Neil Druckmann has been sharing his game for daysAs we say, many names in the industry are testing or talking about the game, and the director of Naughty Dog and author of The Last of Us Neil Druckman is not an exception. The creative has been sharing images and videos of his departure to Elden Ring for several days on his official Twitter account. Twitterand there is a curious detail that links the two sagas.

The character that Druckmann has chosen is dressed in different ways as he advances in his adventure, but there is a set of armor that seems to make a clear reference to clickers of the saga starring Joel and Ellie. The director himself has put it on and has published a message where he accompanies an image with the text “click click click”, referring to the sound made by this type of infected in The Last of Us.
