Exodus in America

The beginning of the game is - as always - a light introduction to the mechanics you'll come across throughout your adventure as John Marston. There's plenty of story to be had in America and loads to do, so you can always focus on the main mission, or wander off and explore the land at your own leisure.

Once you jump off of the train, head over to the saloon and once the cut-scene is over, follow Jake to the horses. Jump on yours and then hold down A/X to automatically keep up speed with your friend (without running down your horse’s stamina).

Ride with your guide until you approach Fort Mercer and then ride on up to the yellow point designated on your radar/map. This’ll trigger another series of cut-scenes and the end of this mission!
