As with most action RPGs, there are a handful of cutscenes in Genshin Impact that you may want to skip, especially if you’ve already played in the closed beta. Additionally, if you have unlocked the ability to reroll, you’ve likely found that it can take a while to go through. Thus, you’re probably wondering how to skip cutscenes in Genshin Impact, if it’s even possible?
Can You Skip Cutscenes in Genshin Impact?
Unfortunately, you cannot skip cutscenes in Genshin Impact. This means that if you’ve already seen them in the closed beta or are rerolling, you’ll have to suffer through them again. If you’ve rerolled before, you’re probably aware that it takes around 40-50 minutes to reach the point in the game,
If you haven’t rerolled yet but are thinking about it, essentially, you’ll have to reach Adventurer Rank 5, which will take about 40-50 minutes. We won’t go into the details on how to reroll in this guide, but there really isn’t a way to shortcut it. So, if you’re not pleased with your current setup, then you may want to consider a reroll, but you won’t be able to skip cutscenes.
As expected, a lot of players are asking developer miHoYo to consider adding a skip option, as rewatching cutscenes gets old really fast. However, at the time of writing, there has been no confirmation from developers that this feature will be added in the future. Of course, if enough fans rally together, it’s possible they could bring about some type of change.
So, with all that said, if you’re planning to reroll, you’d better get prepared for it to take up a fair amount of time. Of course, as you do this more and more, you’ll find ways to speed up the process and will reduce the amount of time it takes — but you’ll never be able to skip cutscenes.
