Nvidia is now delivering a new hotfix driver aimed at stabilizing the notoriously buggy The Last of Us Part 1 port for PC gamers running team green hardware. Coming with version number 531.58, this hotfix driver also resolves a couple of other issues in Assassin’s Creed Origins and Resident Evil 4 remake.
Owners of RTX 30-series graphics cards who are facing random crashes in The Last of Us Part 1 may finally be able to play the game continuously if they grab this driver update. The fixed issues listed in the hotfix’s changelog are as follows:
- [The Last of Us Part 1] Game may randomly crash during gameplay on GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs 
- Assassin’s Creed Origins may have stability issues when using driver version 531.18. 
- [ResidentEvil 4 Remake] Corruption in the game when FXAA enabled

The developer of The Last of Us, Naughty Dog, is recommending that owners of 30-series graphics cards install this driver immediately. The studio also released a new hotfix for the game today that squashes further bugs and could help the many players still facing crashes, low performance, and other issues.
Those not encountering the issues listed, or who are simply not playing the games, do not have to update to this hotfix. The fixes should be included in the next official WHQL Game Ready driver by Nvidia, alongside the usual game optimizations and feature updates.
