Just installed God of War on PC and you can’t really wait to play but there’s this oh-so-long intro video right before the game starts so you are here because you want to entirely skip the intro video, don’t you? Look no further! After going through this guide, you won’t have to wait for the intro video to be over and can jump into the game as soon as it loads.
Since the intro video gives you an insight into what all events have occurred before the ones that will take place in this installment of God of War, developers haven’t included an option to skip it entirely. Therefore, follow the workaround mentioned below and you will be up for playing God of War campaign as soon as you load into the cutscene section.
