Unreal 5 Engine

As of now, the Unreal 5 Engine is the newest version of “Unreal Engine” and it is a powerful one as a matter of fact.

This has created a whole new experience for Ark Survival Ascended, making the game more realistic and improving how things happen.

From footprints to collision and movement, there are several changes that you will notice once you get out there and start surviving.

Verdict

There you have it, the system requirements for Ark Survival Ascended are tough but you can still enjoy the game even if you don’t meet the RECOMMENDED system requirements.

It is important that you at least have a system equivalent to the Minimum system requirements or else you might be stressing your system out.

If you don’t meet the system requirements and can’t upgrade now, you can still play the game on low settings, it will look just as if you were playing its predecessor. (Ark Survival Evolved)
