Ark Survival Evolved will get DirectX 12 Patch this Friday

 

Ark: Survival Evolved is already a very popular game, despite the fact that it is still in early access. Over time the game has received a large number of improvements, in terms of both stability and in gameplay terms. 

This Friday Ark will begetting one of it's most important patches to date, a patch which will add the option to use DirectX 12 on Windows 10, which makes this game the first readily available game which supports Microsoft's new API. 

 

 

This Friday:
- New Creature: Mesopithecus
- Smoke Grenades
- DirectX12 Mode for Windows 10! Approximate +20% perf 
- "Survival of the Fittest: Unnatural Selection" Event + Tournament

A little further out:
- Specific Representative "on-ground" meshes for all dropped items
(getting every structure type to work with it and be balanced is... interesting :) )
- Water Raft
- Driveable Dune Buggy Modding example (we'll let modders have the first crack at vehicles with this example :) 
- Human and Dino Warpaint

 

The developers of the game say that DirectX 12 should give gamers approximately +20% more performance, though this will change from system to system.

Ark Survival Evolved is currently available on Steam Early access.

Judging by what a few of my work mates have told me of this game performance is generally very unoptimized, Personally gonna wait until it's out of early access.Quote
