Salt and Sacrifice: How to Skip Cutscenes
Traditional Souls-likes have a smattering of cutscenes to introduce bosses and important story moments, but they rarely do more than that. Salt and Sacrifice only has a few moments where you can’t control your character.
It’s helpful to watch these the first time to learn about the story, world, and character backgrounds, but if you go through the game a second, third, or fourth time, skipping these cutscenes will get you into the action much more quickly.
How to Skip Cutscenes in Salt and Sacrifice
The opening cutscene of Salt and Sacrifice explains the basics about why your character hunts Mages, and once it’s over, you get a short movement and mechanics tutorial. Finally, there’s a probably-unwinnable boss fight, leading to the game proper. Skipping the opening cutscene skips the entire tutorial section, including the fight.
Skipping is easy: hold down the B or Circle button on controller and C on keyboard. A small prompt will appear at the bottom-left of your screen with a progress bar. Fill the bar all the way, and you skip the cutscene. This is the case for almost any longer cutscene in the game, as well.
Be aware that if you reach the point in the opening sequence where pink lightning begins to fall around your character, you can no longer skip the tutorial section. You cannot skip boss introduction scenes, no matter how many times you die against them.
Like sprinting or crafting on the go, skipping cutscenes in Salt and Sacrifice is more obtuse than it should be. The same could be said for equipping higher-tier weapons and armor and the starting crimes you choose as part of character creation. Look to our guides hub for more on the game.
