"PC has always been a key element of Far Cry's DNA, and this couldn't be truer with Far Cry® 5," said Kirill Bragin, the producer of Far Cry® 5’s PC version. “In order to help ensure PC players have the best experience possible, the Benchmark feature and video memory usage meter will help you analyze your system and calibrate the myriad visual options, including variant aspect ratio support, FOV adjustment, optional FPS locking, and resolution scaling.”

“But players won't need to dive into the calibration menus if they don't feel like it”, says Bragin, because "the game will auto-detect the user's hardware and will set the matching quality preset and resolution."

To ensure your hardware is performing at peak efficiency in Far Cry® 5, and you therefore get the best possible preset for your GPU, download and install our Far Cry® 5 Game Ready driver. You can either get it from our website, or automatically through GeForce Experience, an indispensable application for GeForce GTX gamers that also features game setting optimization, gameplay recording, Twitch streaming, giveaways, and much more.
