If you are playing Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5 and have been getting frequent crashes after playing the game for a while, there’s a possibility that it’s caused by the NVIDIA’s driver 391.35. Some gamers suggest a quick fix by uninstalling NVIDIA 391.35 WHQL driver and reinstalling an older driver (391.24). This seems to fix Far Cry 5 crashes.

However, if you always want to use the latest and greatest, the good news is that NVIDIA has just released a new WHQL, NVIDIA driver to address Far Cry 5 crashing like there’s no tomorrow, the 391.31.

In one of the new driver’s changelog:

[GeForce GTX 1060][Far Cry 5]: The game crashes after a few minutes of game play. [2096077]

While NVIDIA clearly states that Far Cry 5’s crashing fix is for GeForce GTX 1060 card owners, it may work for owners of GTX 1080 card or others. It also addresses green flickering issues when HDR is used with non-native resolution settings.

For a complete changelog, head off to NVIDIA 391.31 changelog PDF file.

And if you are planning to play the newly released BattleTech and FrostPunk, this latest driver has also been optimised for the new games.
