I thought I'd share the news with you that Ark: Survival Evolved is now available for the XBox One. The game is still in development and I've been following it very closely. I don't have an XBox One, but I've been playing this game on my PC since the summer, at least. I think it's a great game and it's certainly very popular. It also has issues which need to be addressed. Right now, I'm waiting for optimization updates. Unfortunately, the PC version doesn't run very well unless you have an extremely high-end GPU like a Titan. I only have a GTX 690 and I don't believe the game takes full advantage of my dual-GPU card. I can get the game to run well by using a command to launch the game using DirectX 10, although it looks much better using DirectX 11. Unfortunately, for me, it doesn't perform very well with DX11. DirectX 12 support is in the works and is supposed to increase performance by 20% according to the game's upcoming patch notes. If you're interested in how to get it running well on your PC, leave a comment here and I'll point you to some excellent resources.

Check the game out on the XBox store using the link below:

You can also get the game on Steam using the link below:

Your Xbox link appears broken.

It wasn't when I posted, but it apparently is broken now. I just Googled "Ark Survival Evolved XBox" and found that link on the XBox Store. I did it again and yes, the link is apparently broken now.

Yeah I tried searching on Xbox.com and couldn't find any mention of it. Apparently they've scrubbed it from the site.

I did, too, before posting my comment. It's odd, but I haven't seen any news about the game since I posted this. Do you have an XBox One?

Nah, I have none of the current gen consoles.

That's what I thought. I just have the Wii U.

The link is working again, it seems.
