Ark Survival Evolved PC vs Xbox One Comparison

Posted 10 months ago

Ark Survival Evolved became available this week for the Xbox One, through the Xbox preview program. Time to compare the Xbox One version to the PC version of the game.

The PC version of Ark Survival Evolved became available back in June of this year, while Xbox One owners in the game preview program had to wait for 6 more months. The game is scheduled for a release on the PS4 in 2016 as well.

Candyland uploaded a comparison video between the PC and Xbox One version of the game, which can be seen below.

From the looks of it, the Xbox One version looks more blurry and bland than the PC version.


Ark Survival Evolved is an open-world survival Dinosaur title from Independent developer, Studio Wildcard.

Ark Survival Evolved; Dinosaur survival

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 naked 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.

“ARK taps into the scale, size, and wildly unpredictable nature of the dinosaur eras like no other game before it, then pairs it with the wonders of exploration and technological discovery,” said Jesse Rapczak, co-founder and co-creative director, Studio Wildcard. “We’re particularly excited to bring ARK to consoles, as open-world survival gameplay is typically found solely in PC games.”
Tame one of 60 amazing dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! Fly a Pterodactyl 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. Players will quickly learn that dinosaurs aren’t the only dangerous creatures on the island. Other players are organizing rebel tribes to accumulate resources, experience, re-spawn points, and to construct sprawling villages and cities, with technology spanning the primitive stone-age to the modern electric-powered era and beyond. And they will fight to destroy anything they see as a threat.

Last week, we reported that Ark would run at 30-45 frames per second on Xbox One – a quite remarkable feet since high-end GPU’s also seem to struggle to maintain a steady framerate.
