The whole Marston clan is along for the ride.

The Red Dead Redemption 2 gameplay trailer shed a lot more light on all the mechanics behind how Arthur Morgan and his gang of outlaws will operate in the upcoming action game, but it also revealed some story threads as well. We know that, as a prequel, this tells the story of Dutch's gang, where the first game's protagonist, John Marston, made his outlaw name. However, the new trailer reveals that his family is along for the ride too.
In a pair of blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameos, we see both Abigail Marston and her son, Jack. Both of them are sitting at a campfire as the gang gathers around. In a separate scene, Abigail talks to Morgan one-on-one, and the mini-map at one point shows an "A" icon--possibly for Abigail. It seems the whole Marston family will factor into this story.
Conspicuously absent is John Marston's daughter, who was mentioned but unnamed in the first Red Dead Redemption. She was said to have died of a fever a couple years after he left Dutch's gang, so it's possible she'll factor into the story too, and simply wasn't seen in the footage released today. Alternately, she could have both been born and passed away after Marston left the gang.

The rest of the trailer focused mostly on how Morgan and his gang will operate within the world, moving from the heartland to the Wild West as law enforcement chases them out of their hideouts. And naturally, it's full of sweeping vistas of mountain ranges and prairies, dangerous wildlife, card games, and shoot-outs. This trailer kicks off a series that will explore the gameplay systems in-depth, and more are on the way.
