Method #3

As usual, we recommend updating your GPU drivers. Usually, when a new game comes out, both NVIDIA and AMD release new drivers specifically optimized for that game. Since Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a new release, you should update your GPU drivers to make sure your game runs smoothly on your system. You can download the most up-to-date drivers from your GPU manufacturer’s website; AMD or NVIDIA. You can also make sure that your Graphic Card is not overclocked as an unstable overclock might run fine in some games and benchmarks but that doesn’t mean that it won’t cause problems in other applications.

To do a clean install of GPU drivers, you can use Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) which completely removes components that were part of the original driver installation package. Then you can install your new Graphics Card drivers. Reboot Windows and try launching the game again.
