Ark Survival Evolved Dev Jeremy Stieglitz: Xbox One Scorpio Is Powerful Enough For VR And Makes It Look Good


Xbox One Scorpio is set to launch later this calendar year and it’s had many developers attention ever since it was announced.Ark Survival Evolved just like plenty of other games will also support the console and Studio Wildcard’s co-founder certainly had something to say on Xbox One Scorpio.

In an interview with Inquistr, Jeremy Stieglitz said that Xbox One Scorpio not only looks to be powerful enough for virtual reality it also makes it look good. He went on to state that the team is currently experimenting with VR for Ark Survival Evolved but isn’t really close to implementing it yet.

It looks plenty powerful enough (for VR) to support it and have it look really good, it’s just a matter of getting our hands on the console and seeing what we can achieve with it.

For us we’re still very experimental with Virtual Reality in ARK, I do not think the VR support we have now is anywhere near the final implementation.

Stieglitz also said they’re collecting feedback for VR implementation and while the support is present for the Oculus Rift they plan to do something different with HTC VIVE. He also noted that whatever Microsoft is planning they are keeping a check on it.

It’s quite basic and is something us to gather feedback to help us work out what to do with it. It’s there for the Oculus Rift and we’re hoping to do something a little different with the Vive.

And whatever Microsoft are doing with The Scorpio is a little further out but it’s definitely going to be on our radar when we get a development unit to start working with.

When it is finally unleashed Xbox One Scorpio will become the most powerful console boasting 6 TFLOPS of computational power. Scorpio is set for release around Holiday 2017.
