  • Hi,

     

    Thank you for posting.

     

    Firstly, please contact the game support to check if your graphics card can meet the hardware requirement of the game. If it fails to meet the requirement, you may need to change the graphics card to the one which has higher-performance.

     

    Meanwhile, if it can meet the requirement, you may try the following driver and see how it works:
