What is North Yankton

Signpost North Yankton GTA V

North Yankton is a fictitious state in the world of Grand Theft Auto V, where two missions of the main campaign of this video game take place, involving the playing characters Michael is Trevor.

In contrast to the state of San Andreas, where all the activities of GTA 5 take place, which is inspired by real Southern California, North Yankton is inspired by North Dakota, a real state of the United States of America, bordering Canada .

The city of North Yankton represented in GTA 5 is called Ludendorff and it is composed of a few buildings and without any possibility of exploration. In fact, as I anticipated, this city is the scenario of two missions and, therefore, trying to get away from the goal will cause it to fail and consequently restart.

The usefulness of reaching this location is purely linked to the curiosity to visit every place in the world of GTA, perhaps in search of some small secrets or curiosities related to the world of this video game. Unfortunately, the only interesting reason to revisit this region is to see a alien frozen in the river. For the rest, very little is known about North Yankton, including that little information on the official LifeInvander page accessible only by Trevor.

Given this premise, you can well understand that North Yankton is an area of ​​GTA 5 that cannot be explored and freely accessible. This means that, in the next chapters, you will not find a direct method to access this region, but some tips that you can put into practice to return to visit North Yankton.

How to go to North Yankton through History

Replay GTA mission 5

As I already told you in introductory chapter of this guide, North Yankton it is a region accessible only during some missions of the GTA 5 Story mode. This means that normally you can return to visit this region only by replaying the respective missions.

Specifically, North Yankton is the scenario of two specific GTA 5 missions: Prologue is Bury the hatchet. The first mission is the one that introduces you to the world of this chapter of the serious GTA and you come across it as soon as you start playing the title for the first time.

The second, however, is available only after playing at least more than half of the missions of the Story mode, specifically after the preparatory briefing will have been held to carry out the big blow to the Union Depository.

As for the first mission, the goal will be to take a hit on Bobcat Security and try to get Trevor, Michael and Brad to run away chased by the police. The second mission has instead the objective of reach Trevor who headed to North Yankton to get some answers related to the events that occurred during the Prologue mission.

If, therefore, you have not had the opportunity to play all the missions that allow you to visit this region or you have played them quickly, regardless of the fact that you were right in North Yankton, your only solution to visit this place again is to replay the aforementioned missions.

To do this, access the menu of pause (e.g. button Esc up PC) and select the card Game. From the left column, then choose the item Replay main mission and identify one of the two missions that I have previously indicated to you: Prologue or Bury the hatchet.

After selecting the item related to the mission to be replayed, go on Submit twice, to confirm. By doing so, you will be able to replay one of the two missions in the main story of GTA 5 that will bring you back to North Yankton.

I remind you that you will not be able to freely explore the city of Ludendorff, as you will miss the mission objective. But you can take a look in the immediate surroundings.

How to go to North Yankton through mod

North Yankton GTA V

Since North Yankton is normally accessible only by replaying the story mode missions, an alternative tool has been created to go back there as often as you wish and to explore the place in search of some hidden curiosity. How? Using some mod of GTA 5 for PC.

You should know that the mods on GTA 5 can be used without any risk, if loaded only during the story mode (i.e. offline mode) of this game. If you were to try to access GTA Online with some active mod, you could risk the immediate ban.

Having said that, the mod that allows you to return to visit this region of GTA 5 is called Travel to North Yankton. This add-on is easy to install and most importantly to use. You will find all the information you need in the next paragraphs.

First, the mod can only be run on GTA 5 and only if you have previously installed it ScriptHookV in the game installation folder. It is a library that allows the execution of files in .ASI format, i.e. scripts executable on Grand Theft Auto V.

You can easily get hold of it ScriptHookV through this link which refers to the site Then press the button Download and then on it again, to download thearchive .ZIP containing the mod. After downloading the file in question, extract the contents within the main directory of GTA 5 (make sure the game has not started).

North Yankton GTA 5 mod installation

Of the three files in the archive, the ones that interest you most are ScriptHookV.dll (the .ASI script library) and dinput8.dll (the component that executes .ASI scripts). The file NativeTrainer.asi it’s just an example script that adds some “tricks” to the game, but it’s not necessary for this guide.

After that, it’s time to download the mod (or rather the script) that will allow you to access North Yankton. Therefore, reach out this link and download the archive, using the button Download, to be pressed twice in succession.

After that, extract the contents of the archive within the GTA 5 main directory, i.e. in the same location where you placed the ScriptHookV files. The file to extract is called NorthYankton.asi and it must be in the same folder where you previously extracted the files ScriptHookV.dll is dinput8.dll.

Los Santos GTA 5 airport

At this point, start Grand Theft Auto V and reach the Los Santos Airport. All you have to do is approach the airport entrance doors to be immediately transported to North Yankton.

Since this region was created only as a scenario for carrying out two missions of the main campaign of GTA 5, many areas outside the target area are not accessible (invisible walls). Also, you could plummet into the game texture or encounter lots of other bugs. For that reason, all you have to do is use the key 9 of the numeric keypad, to return to the area where you were initially transported.

I warn you: given that the area is accessible only through missions, the use of the mod forces access to it. Therefore, do not change characters and do not try to save the game session. You can return to Los Santos at any time, simply by heading in front of the gate of the area where you initially arrived in North Yankton (theairplane icon on the map).
