Ark Survival Ascended PS5/Xbox/PC - Legendarily Sub-Optimal... And Now On UE5!

Published on

This ground-up remake of Ark Survival Evolved moves to UE5 with a bevy of new visual features - starting with lumen, nanite, volumetric clouds and updated physics. The performance cost runs deep on console though, leading to a 20-40fps range with full screen tearing. On the plus side, Ascended offers a small reprieve via a console command menu, letting us tweak select settings on PS5, Series X and S - so can we better optimise the game ourselves for 60fps?
