page title icon ARK: Survival Evolved Plays at 60 FPS Split Screen Too, But There is a Catch! – Xbox Series X|S

How to play Ark Survival Evolved at 60 FPS on Xbox Series X by yourself or split screen is as easy as you reading this article or watching the video embedded with the article so you can learn where you need to uncheck certain menu setting to enable you to enjoy PVP ready Ark on Xbox Console.

You just bought an Xbox series X|S and are ready to enjoy ARK Survival Evolved the way it was meant to be played, because the old Xbox One Console just could not deliver a stable ARK experience for you. You start playing and the game looks beautiful the graphics are ultra and 4K, but then you realize that you are running at 30fps instead of 60 FPS.

Your friend calls you because you both loaded into your new server really fast and have to share with each other on a FaceTime or Zoom call how awesome it felt, but your friend is disappointed that his Xbox Series S only plays the game at 30fps and you then realize that you also are playing the same frame rate as he is which makes you wonder what the hell?

I am here to answer that” what the hell” question with yes you can play at 60 FPS on the new Xbox series X! You just have to turn off detailed graphics in the options/settings menu. The detailed graphics mode is turned on by default and it is only available on the Xbox One X and the Xbox Series X not on the Xbox One S or Xbox Series S even though the game is already optimized for the Xbox Series S.

If you care to understand more about this game and how it runs and all the devices let me tell you that if you did not watch the video above you cannot understand, unless you have played the game before, how slow and bad it plays on the old Xbox One S and the Xbox series S delivers a low resolution yet high enough resolution experience that is stable and fast enough to make ARK Survival Evolved a joy to play even at 30fps 1080 P which is much sharper than the abysmal 720P that Ark plays on the Xbox One S at sub 30 FPS. 

The Xbox One X version of the video game is definitely a much prettier sharper version which actually has better frame rates than the Xbox One S, but it still suffers from slow loading and drops here and there which are really annoying when you have detailed graphics mode turned on, but if you disable that mode then the game is definitely a nice stable experience as long as there is not a lot of PVP or huge cities around you. 

Don’t forget this game is free to play if you are a subscriber to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which if you like to earn your Microsoft Rewards Points and then redeem them so you can get free Xbox Game Pass Ultimate don’t forget to check the video below in my 15 minute guide that will get you on your way to enjoying and saving money while playing video games and honestly probably using the toilet because that’s where I highly recommend that you do your daily and weekly quests. 

Finally we talk about the technical aspects of this specific version of the game the Xbox Series S and Xbox series X deliver 30 FPS 1080 P and 60 FPS or 30 FPS dynamic 4K respectively. If you are wanting to do split screen with ARK Survival Evolved I would argue that the only way to truly enjoy it is if you play on the Xbox series S or the Xbox series X because on the Xbox One consoles it is broken and honestly not fun at all as long as you are not just staring at the sky or the water. 

To wrap things up even with the new Xbox devices ARK Survival Evolved is a game that lacks optimization therefore even with the new hardware which plays the game at great levels of acceptance and it is actually good performance it should be able to deliver more in my opinion, but because the Xbox One version of the game is so bad the new Xbox devices make the experience what it should have been since the beginning and that is good enough for me let me know your thoughts on social media and don’t forget to use the #StreamingLiveAcademy
