News: If you have an Xbox One X or are planning on picking one up you might want to check out the enhancements in ARK: Survival Evolved.



”ARK:

ARK: Survival Evolved now has Xbox One X Enhancements. Provided as a free update to Xbox players, ARK on Xbox One X takes full advantage of the new system's power, delivering next-generation gaming with brilliant HDR visuals, 1440p high-resolution options, longer draw distances and enhanced visual effects, higher framerates, significantly reduced load times and much more. All these new features make ARK: Survival Evolved on Xbox One X the ultimate visually and technically advanced dinosaur survival experience on any console.

"Ever since the original announcement of the Xbox One X, we've been excited to see how far Microsoft would push the hardware specs, and how far that would let us push ARK," said Jeremy Stieglitz, Lead Designer, Lead Programmer, Development Director, Co-Creative Director, Co-Founder of Studio Wildcard. "When gamers get their hands on this powerful new console, and of course, on the new build of ARK, we expect they'll be just as impressed as we are with how much more visually immersive the world of ARK becomes."

More than 10 million players have washed up on the shores of the mysterious ARK island thus far, vying to survive by hunting, taming, training and breeding more than 100 dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures found wandering the vast open-world. Xbox One X owners of ARK will have immediate access to these Xbox One X enhancements, with progression following players from platform to platform.

Xbox One X Enhancements:

  • The "Eyes" Have It : Enjoy "Detail Mode" with buttery smooth 30 FPS gameplay at 1440p or 60 FPS at 1080p in "Medium Quality"

  • See Farther, and With More Detail: In 1440p "Detail Mode", long-range shadows, high quality textures and extended draw distances enhance visual fidelity, while the "TrueSky" system renders volumetric clouds, realistic atmospheric fog & sunlight scattering, and dynamic weather systems.

  • Split Screen and Split Up: In local splitscreen multiplayer mode, players can now split up to independently explore the islands.

  • More Power Means More Players: With increased hardware performance, Xbox One X servers can now host 70 players in a game.

  • Get There Faster: Improved loading and streaming times get you where you want to go on the ARK faster than before!


  • Powered by Unreal Engine 4, ARK: Survival Evolved takes on the survival genre with a unique blend of emergent multiplayer cooperation and competition. Players awake stranded and starving on the beach of a mysterious island among a herd of other confused humans. On ARK, they must then hunt, harvest, craft, research technology, and build shelters to protect against scorching days, freezing nights, volatile weather systems, dangerous wildlife, and potential enemies. Tame, train, ride and breed one of 100 amazing dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! Fly a Pteranodon squadron over the snow-capped mountains, race through the deep jungle with your pack of trained Raptors, tromp through a fortified enemy base along a convoy of gigantic Brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex.
