The opening cinematic intro in Conan Exiles has undoubtedly been seen many times. But, if you’re launching the game after a crash or simply played hundreds of hours, you’re probably wondering if disabling the Conan Exiles intro is possible. The good news — it is! Much like you can turn on/off nudity in Conan, you can also turn off the intro scene.
While you can skip the Conan Exiles intro video, you have to wait until a large portion of the video has played before being able to skip it, which just makes it easier to disable it altogether instead.
But, it’s not as simple as clicking a button in your Conan Exiles settings to turn this off. You’ll need to go into your game’s install folder to disable it. Stay with us, here’s how to skip that annoying opening cinematic intro you’ve seen enough of!
