a) Update your drivers:

Many people ignore this step, if you are one of them, then you are completely wrong. Updating the drivers is compulsory for every “Latest game”. First of all.

Go to Command prompt (Windows button + R)
Now, type “DRIVERQUERY” and click enter
Now, you can see the results of drivers and the last updated dates. If they were not update since 6 months ago, then we recommend you have to update early because nVidia and AMD have released latest drivers for this game.

To update your drivers, we recommend you to use Driver Scanner.

After downloading, you need to perform a complete system scan with it.
From there, you can update the drivers by one click.

b) Try to run the game in compatibility mode select “Windows Service Pack 3”

c) Disable V-sync and triple buffering and restart the game. If it didn’t work, then revert back the changes.

d) Configure your nVidia –  If your PC uses nVidia Graphic card, go into nVidia control panel, add your game.exe and make it “use NVidia GPU” this too can resolve this issue. Also, go to NVidia control panel and check if game.exe has two instances. If at all, there are two instances, set both to use your specific GPU instead of automatic.
