The year is 1899. The era of the Wild West is beginning to come to an end as the federal government asserts its control over the lawless territories. Realizing their fortunes are fading, the notorious Van der Linde gang led by Dutch plots one last major bank robbery that could set them for life. However, the heist goes awry with several gang members dead or captured; the gang is forced to flee across the country with the law pursuing them. Undeterred, Dutch hopes to pull off one last heist and flee the country. However, each scheme ends in failure in one way or another. Dutch's most trusted lieutenant, Arthur Morgan, sees his loyalty to the gang put to the test as he is forced to come to terms with the changing times.
Did You Know?
During the standoff scene where characters side with Dutch van der Linde and Micah Bell against John Marston and Arthur Morgan, Javier Escuella is not pointing his gun directly at them. This was done deliberately by actor Gabriel Sloyer
, who didn't believe Javier would point a gun at his "brothers". Rockstar initially fought him on this, but Sloyer won in the end. See more
There are many conflicting points between what we see in this prequel and what was mentioned in the first Red Dead Redemption game. See more
