ARK: Survival Evolved is still a very popular survival game that collects regular updates and expansions on top of the absolutely massive game that already exists. However, ARK is also notoriously demanding, especially on aging console hardware like the OG Xbox One or One S, which can barely play the game at a 720p resolution. Today, ARK: Survival Evolved is releasing an update for the game that enhances the title for the upcoming Xbox Series X, netting a huge number of improvements ahead of the console’s launch on November 10, 2020.
The side-by-side comparison in the above trailer shows just how impressive this update is, with ARK: Survival Evolved looking like two completely separate games from Xbox One to Xbox Series X. In some ways, ARK: Survival Evolved squeezes more out of the Xbox Series X even than gaming PC’s, which is an interesting note. Improvements included in ARK’s Xbox Series X update include:
There’s no mention of the Xbox Series S here, but it’s already becoming quickly apparent from multiple developer sources that the Xbox Series S is just as capable as its more powerful sibling, just at much lower resolutions. If this update applies to the Series S as well as the Series X, expect many of the same improvements, but at a 1080p to 1440p resolution.
ARK: Survival Evolved is also joining Xbox Game Pass on November 17, 2020, so if you wanted to give the game a try without committing to a full purchase, that would be the best possible time to do it.
Is the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate the best value in all of gaming? It’s possible. Ultimate bundles your Xbox Live Gold subscription, an Xbox Game Pass subscription for both Xbox consoles and Windows PC’s, and Xbox Cloud Gaming for on-the-go. That means access to hundreds of games, with more added all the time, for a single monthly subscription cost.

When thinking of business laptops, lineups from Lenovo, Dell, and HP often come to mind. But Acer’s TravelMate series shouldn’t be forgotten, especially if you’re interested in more than 14 hour of battery life and a lightweight, slim build.
Over the last month, I’ve been reviewing the FlexiSpot E5 3-stage dual-motor standing desk. I’ve been looking for a standing desk ever since the ongoing pandemic started, as I’m sure many of you have been too. It’s more important than ever for us to be comfortable and healthy at home while working, and I think getting yourself a standing desk of some kind is a great way to do that.
