Ark: Survival Evolved patch looks to improve frame-rate on Xbox One

Plus, split-screen for both versions.

The developers of hugely popular dinosaur survival game Ark are working on a patch that they say will improve the frame-rate of the Xbox One version.

Last month Digital Foundry took a look at Ark on Xbox One and found its frame-rate in poor shape. Here's a snippet:

The game is crying out for a 30fps cap with an adaptive v-sync solution. Romps through swampland on both builds can see frame-rate dip well below 20fps, illustrating just how much of a challenge the developers face in getting Ark: Survival Evolved into shape.

Well, it looks like Studio Wildcard is getting to work on knocking Ark into shape. In a tweet we discover the next update will tackle frame-rate, as well as add split-screen to both PC and Xbox One versions. Nice!
