Ark Survival Evolved developer Studio Wildcard has talked about the hardware difference between the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X. In an interview with Geoff Keighley for YouTube Live, the developer shared some comments on the hardware offered by the Xbox One X as well as the comparison to PS4 Pro.
According to the developer Jesse Rapczak, the reason they can offer high quality textures, draw distance close to ‘Epic’ settings on PC and other improved visuals on the Xbox One X is because of the faster processing power and higher RAM offered by the Xbox One X. The developer stated that it is not possible to release the game in the same state on the PS4 Pro compared to what they have achieved on the Xbox One X.
The additional RAM that is being offered to the developers has been increased to 9 GB, up from the initial 8 GB of GDDR5 RAM. This is also an increase over the PS4 Pro and the developers stated that one of the reason the draw distance is higher on the Xbox One X is because of the RAM.
Ark Survival Evolved is available now for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. You can simply get the updated Ark Survival Evolved version on Xbox One X if you own the game on the Xbox One. There is no need to purchase another version for it.
