CRank: 40Score: 0

The "pay to win forced grind" is what the article is referring to about the progression system if you bother to read it.

It runs on Unreal Engine 4, so they didn't make it. The problem is Unreal Engine 4 wasn't made for what ARK: Survival Evolved asks it to do and they've had to make modifications. Conan Exiles and PUBG run on it too and both those games have their issues.

The good news is Epic Games is starting to modifications to Unreal Engine 4 themselves to better handle huge maps and loads of players due to the success of Fortnite: Battle Royale. Now it's just a question ...

Studio Wildcard revealed a free 4K texture pack will be released right after this article was posted. That's been added to the piece.

Because it would have pushed the ESRB rating to "AO" for Adult Only, which would have limited Funcom's ability to sell it. I don't think there are any "AO" rated games on the Xbox Store.

Well, there' not much of a fps advantage with Gears 4 because multi-player runs at 60fps on the Xbox One.

I would have preferred to see Bungie go with a similar solution for Destiny 2. 30fps for PVE and 60fps for PVP.

They are a timed exclusive, so not that big of a deal.

It's not optimized for release yet. They've been putting out performance improvements steadily as they work to release. Additionally, they showed a "Detailed Graphics" option but we don't know what that does yet.

You only have to buy it once.

"Where's the trailer? Release date? For how long they will keep this on early access?"

They've had several trailers for ARK: Survival Evolved. There's been a trailer pretty much for every content update to the game, which happens at least once a month.

Release date was for July, but was delayed so they could add more content and features. It is now holiday.

Did you play the beta at all? It's not been very fun IMHO. Throwing more money into a multi-delayed product that isn't very engaging or fun isn't exactly a winning strategy. Sometimes you have to cut your losses.

Thank you sir. :)

That's not the thrust of the article at all. Even at the end, it notes that Xbox One is unlikely to outsell the PS4. Having a solid and competitive second place finish is key to staying relevant in Europe.

It's about market share, not total sales. Yes, the Xbox One is selling better than the 360 at this point in its life, but the PS4 enjoys a 70-90% market share in continental Europe countries.

That's unhealthy for the Xbox brand.

Actually it was classified as Ugly, which is used for gaffes. The delay combined with having to restart the demo a minute in was a gaffe.

It's a minor one, and a big improvement over past E3's, but still a gaffe.

Ugh. What an odd typo. Thanks for the heads up. Fixed.

"The gif below is the old build while the one below is the new build"

"Same here with the one below being the old build and the one below being the new build."

Phrasing! </archer>

That 18.5 million people have purchased a PS4.

@SilentNegotiator: Good question. I have no idea. Would probably have to find a way to trick the Xbox One into thinking a Blu-ray drive was hooked up...which may have been more trouble than it was worth.

Only thing I would have done different is not include the Blu-ray drive. Might as well make the tablet all digital and save some space.

Thinner at least. He'd still need to find a smaller LCD screen than the one he used in this build.
