ARK: Survival Evolved will support higher resolutions and framerates on Xbox One X

Matt Sayer 18 October 2017 NEWS


You'll have the option of enhancing either graphics or framerate when the game launches on Xbox One X.

Studio Wildcard, the developer behind the popular survival game ARK: Survival Evolved, has revealed just how much better the game will look and play on Xbox One X when the system launches on 7 November.

Thanks to the increased power of the Xbox One X, ARK will support HDR (High Dynamic Range) for enhanced lighting and colours, plus the game will boast two graphics modes: Detailed and 1080p. The Detailed graphics mode boosts the resolution up to 1440p and ups the graphics quality to the equivalent of the High setting on a PC while maintaining 30fps. The 1080p mode, on the other hand, retains the graphical quality of ARK on the standard Xbox One but bumps the framerate up to 60fps.

Studio Wildcard also promises that the increased RAM available in the Xbox One X will help to iron out memory issues the game occasionally suffers, and the X's faster hard drive will help speed up loading times, too. You won't have to worry about sticking close to your buddy in split-screen co-op, either, as the X removes the range restriction currently imposed in the Xbox One version of the game.
