When i use -skipintro parameter, game menu with empty world uses 100% of my gpu and heats my video card for over 100C that leads to emergensy pc restart.
This happens only with empty world in menu and slot select lobby.

This error is very generic. It may be caused by many issues, such as a hardware malfunction, a virus in the computer, but also an error in the game itself. Possible solutions:

Update the graphics card drivers to a newer version.
Rollback the graphics card drivers to an older version.
Verify the integrity of the game cache using Steam.
Re-install DirectX.
Uninstall the Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable package (x86 version), restart your computer and install the package again (do not use the Repair function).
Run a Windows System File Check tool to repair corrupted system files.

This might not be the game's fault.
You could try running some GPU stress test, like Furmark for example, and see if it crashes too.
