Red Dead Redemption 2 Marks The Return Of An Unexpected Character
The whole Marston clan is along for the ride.
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
We've finally learned a lot more about Red Dead Redemption 2 now that we've gotten to go hands-on with it. That includes discovering a ton of new mechanics, from the big (like weapon degradation) to the small but delightful (you can lose your hat and then pick up someone else's). Before this huge information drop, we only knew what we could glean from trailers. One of the notable tidbits we had learned concerned its story. 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.
Take-Two has staked a claim that that RDR2 will "redefine" gaming. Red Dead Redemption 2 releases on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
