I played the KoA demo, so I pretty much already understand the buttons and the basic lore of the game. However, the game seems intent on making me jump through all these hoops and teaching me all of this again (spoiler alert: You find a sword!).
I imagine if I want to start the game over again with a different character, I'm going to have to go through all of this yet again. I tend to want to restart about a couple of hours in, once I have a clear idea about the skill trees and the various perks.
Is there some way to skip this "tutorial phase" or speed up the process?
