At the start of last month we received a nice little showing for F.I.S.T: Forged In Shadow Torch and the story it was going to hold. This is the one with the anthropomorphic animals in the dieselpunk setting and a robotic fist added to a rabbit. It was unique enough that it had to catch some eyes. If not, then it looks like TiGames has a new cut of the trailer that adds a bit more to the story of F.I.S.T and offers up a few more characters we will have to see in the world. Maybe we will even get to play as them when the game hits the PS4 and PC. Time will tell on that, but for now, we get to sit, ponder and enjoy the bits we do have.
As you will see here, in the world of F.I.S.T it looks like we will be somewhat of a fugitive from an oppressive regime here in Torch City. We will be playing as a character named Rayton that dons the titular item to go and aid a friend after they are forcibly arrested just for owning the mechanical fist we will be using. All so we can try to save the denizens from more hardships or die trying. All in the fun Metroidvania style of gameplay we have seen before for F.I.S.T. No doubt that it looks like it could be fun and interesting to me. Have a look for yourself and see if you will want to get in on this title now that we have a bit more to the story.
F.I.S.T: Forged In Shadow Torch — Story Trailer
Six years ago, the Machine Legion invaded and colonized Torch City, which was originally inhabited by animals. Rayton, the former soldier in the resistance war, has been living in seclusion since then. After his friend is forcibly arrested, Rayton reclaims his mechanical fist and steps into his journey fighting back. And he never expects that he has been involved in a bigger scheme between the mafia, the rebellion, and the legion.

Does all of this sell you more on playing F.I.S.T or will you need more before you can get fully in on it? Do you think we will get to play as other characters in the game or will it just be the one we get to see here? Will there be more than the three different forms for the fist or will that be more than enough to have to try to master here?
