When Ark: Survival Evolved made its debut on the Nintendo Switch back in 2018, it was released in a pretty rough state. There was a range of technical issues and there were also some substantial slowdown issues.
Fortunately, the team at Studio Wildcard are looking to turn the situation around with Ark: Ultimate Survivor Edition - a 'complete revamp' of the game from a new port specialist, supposedly rebuilding the game's code in Unreal Engine 4 and enhancing the functionality, graphics and optimisation.
We're now been presented with our very first look at this version of the game running in handheld mode on the Switch. Keep in mind, that it's still in development and is not the final build of the game.
One other neat deal for existing owners is that they'll be able to access this new version at no extra cost. For everyone else though, you'll have to fork out $49.99 USD or your regional equivalent on the Switch eShop. Included are all the major expansions (Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, and Genesis Parts 1 & 2).
