FromSoftware’s newest entry into their collection of Soulsborne games, Elden Ring, has arrived. It shakes up the standard formula a bit by having an open world for players to explore. If you’re looking to see everything this new world has to offer without story disruptions, we have the info you need. Here’s how to skip cutscenes and dialogue in Elden Ring.

How to Skip Cutscenes & Dialogue in Elden Ring

Cutscenes can be skipped by pressing the Options button on PlayStation or the Menu button on Xbox. Press the button twice to fully skip cutscenes. NPC dialogue can be skipped by pressing Triangle or X on PlayStation or Y or A on Xbox.

If you’re a veteran when it comes to these kinds of FromSoftware games, you know that every cutscene and piece of dialogue can be extremely valuable for those looking to piece together what’s really going on. But if that isn’t important to you, it’s possible to skip through nearly everything.

You’ll most likely miss out on key info on the Lands Between, its inhabitants, and plenty of lore that shows up outside of the regular item description info dumps. So, we don’t recommend doing this at all. That being said, the choice is yours.

That’s everything you need to know about how to skip cutscenes and dialogue in Elden Ring. Be sure to check out our guide wiki on the game to find more tips, tricks, and other useful info as you journey through the Lands Between.
