ARK: Survival Evolved Dev- Probably 50% Difference Between Xbox One X And PS4 Pro

With 6 teraflops, who’s even surprised at this?

The Xbox One X looks really, really impressive, to say the least. Microsoft revealed the Xbox One revision at their E3 press conference yesterday, and the system, earlier being called Scorpio, is being dubbed the most powerful console ever, and if the specs are anything to go buy, that’s a well-earned tag. However, given the fact that it is in direct competition with the PS4, and more specifically, the PS4 Pro, there’s bound to be lots of comparisons between the capabilities of the two.

However, Jesse Rapczac, co-founder of ARK: Survival Evolved developers Studio Wildcard, has answered the question of just how much difference there is between the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro in quite clear terms. “I would probably say around 50 per cent,” Rapczac said when asked the question in an interview with Geoff Keighley.

When asked if ARK: Survival Evolved would have the same frame rate and specs on the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X, Rapczac said that that wasn’t “really possible”. “It’s not really possible, and there’s a couple reasons for that,” Rapczac said. “The Xbox One X not only has faster, it has a lot more RAM too. So that’s why we’re able to put in all the extra draw distances, all the extra meshes, high resolution textures.”

Rapczac also confirmed that the ARK would run at 60 frames per second on the Xbox One X, but would have a variable frame rate on account of the fact that it is, after all, an online game. Getting back to the PS4 Pro/Xbox One X comparisons, Rapczac went on to made quite a bold statement. “I think one of the big differentiating factors with that for us is that [with the PS4 Pro] there was a console version that we targeted medium settings on PC, and with [the Xbox One X], we’re actually targeting our epic settings, which is high-end quality.”

Tha should put the debate to rest- not that there was much of one to begin with anyway. The Xbox One X’s specs look unbelievably impressive, and when you consider the fact that they’ve fit all of it into such a small, sleek looking system, it all becomes even more so.

    Wel, all is good then, except for the fact that they can’t optimize this game to save their lives. It was unplayable on XBox One, stuttering and framerate drops almost made me puke.

      I run an ark server on a day one xbox one, with several clients. The frames certainly do drop depending on what’s going on, but no where near what you’re describing. Are you also running on the internal HDD? I moved ARK to an external and noticed improvements. Also, little things like getting rid of the ground clutter, dropping the lightrays and toning down the bloom makes a substantial difference.

    • heima

      I played the game right after launch, I don’t know how the situation has evolved so far. It was running on the internal HDD and didn’t manage to try and fix it, honestly.
      It’s a common fact that the game was not well optimized for Xbox One. Hopefully things will change before it’s finally released.

    • Jeff J Bishop

      It’s certainly had it’s ups and downs. The latest patches have seemed to be improving things overall. There was a rough stretch last summer, but that’s been resolved for some time, fortunately. I’m curious to see how the play anywhere works between Xbox & Win 10. If it’s good, I may actually build a PC ark server to use for xboxes. I will also be ordering the xbox1x when available to pre-order, to, honestly, spend most my time in Ark.

    Interesting, 60fps at “epic settings” hmm. Doesn’t sound too bad at all

  • Mr Xrat

    This hack, kissing up to the losers who let him put out his broken game early? What a surprise. Into the trash he goes.

      So much pain and suffering in that comment…lol

      Haha haha why so salty.
      This is an amazing game one of the best on consoles this generation.

      Don’t act like you didn’t know this was coming. If devs actually try they can achieve great things with the xb1x.

      Anyway don’t get mad I’m sure your pc can destroy what the Scorpio can do on ark.

  • greatnessIsaLIE

    Ark is a sweet game. I don’t play it as much as I did in 2015 and the first part or 2016, but I will pick it back up now that we have an actually Console that can run this in 4k 60fps.

    All the consoles that are out now are too weak to run this at a decent resolution and framerate, much less in 4k.
    Ps4 pro can do 1080p 45fps which is good,but more comparable in performance to the xb1 or xb1s than the Scorpio.

    It’s good to be a multiplatform gamer.
