Disable those intros!

If you are wondering if it is possible to skip or disable the opening Cinematic in Conan Exiles, the answer is yes. In short, to disable the opening cinematic, you must navigate to the folder and hard drive you installed your game. You can find your game's install folder at an address similar to the one we have listed below

  • E:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles

Inside the Conan Exile folder, you must locate another folder called ConanSandbox, and open the config folder. After opening the config folder, search for DefaultGame.ini as shown below. When you find this file, open it up and run a search for the following command line bWaitForMoviesToComplete=True

After changing True to false, sav over the old DefaultGame.ini, and you will be able to instantly load into Conan Exiles the next time you launch the game.
