Game GTA V
Location Ludendorff, North Yankton
Unlocks Franklin and Lamar

Prologue is the introductory mission of Grand Theft Auto V. The mission is set in Ludendorff, North Yankton in 2004, nine years prior to the events of the game.


The mission starts with Trevor Philips, Michael Townley, and Brad Snider holding up the office of an armored car firm. Trevor sets plastic explosives on the vault, while Michael and Brad force the office employees into a closet. After taking the money, an unaccounted for security guard takes Michael and holds him at gunpoint. The game prompts the player to switch to Trevor to free Michael.

After getting out of the building, Trevor, Michael, and Brad gun down local law enforcement to get to their getaway truck. During the chase, the hired getaway driver is shot in the head, forcing Michael to take the wheel, who then rams the police car off the road. A road block forces them to detour to a side road to face an oncoming train, which clips the rear of the truck. After abandoning the wrecked vehicle near a farm, Trevor states that they can still reach the chopper on foot, while Michael believes that they should stick to the original plan. While looking for the chopper, an unknown sniper ambushes the group and shoots Brad. When Michael checks on Brad, he gets shot and tells Trevor to flee. Refusing to abandon Michael and Brad, Trevor holds off the cops. During the standoff, Trevor spots a woman and holds her at gunpoint, demanding where the chopper is. After releasing the woman, Trevor flees through a hayfield.

The scene then shifts to a cemetery where the funeral of Michael Townley is being held; however, Michael, who is still alive, stands in the distance.

(Trevor escapes into a fog covered field. The screen fades to black and returns at the Ludendorff cemetery)

Ludendorff Reverend: Michael was not always a good husband. Not always a good citizen. He did not die a hero's death. But he was a man. Our Lord was crucified with two thieves so perhaps we should not judge.

Amanda Townley: Michael...

Ludendorff Reverend: We are born of sin, and we die in sin...

(The camera shows Michael, who is still alive, watching his own funeral)

Ludendorff Reverend: and in this Michael was like anybody else. Father... we do not know your infinite mysteries. But we know... that you'll show great mercy to our friend.


  • Michael uses a regular mobile phone in this mission instead of his iFruit Phone as smartphones were not as prevalent in 2004 and the iFruit Phone's real-life counterpart, the Apple iPhone, wasn't introduced until 2007.
  • Ludendorff's police cars are based on the Albany Esperanto, a vehicle otherwise unavailable in GTA V, and the Declasse Rancher XL. The use of 1980s era police vehicles during the 2000s may indicate that Ludendorff's police force is severely underfunded.
  • Michael, Trevor and Brad had managed to steal $179,500 from the business.
