Dieselpunk Platformer F.I.S.T: Forged In Shadow Torch Coming To PS4

Starring A Battle-Hardened Bunny

This morning, PlayStation is announcing nine new indie titles coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The first of those announcements is F.I.S.T: Forged In Shadow Torch, a "dieselpunk-inspired" 2.5D platformer coming to the PlayStation 4 soon.

F.I.S.T stars Rayton, an anthropomorphic bunny wielding a weaponized metal fist. Rayton has spent the last six years in hiding after his city was lost, but when his friend is kidnapped by the Machine Legion, Rayton must emerge and hunt down the kidnappers. Developer TiGames wants players to see what happens when a beautiful idyllic world inhabited by animals is invaded by a race of machines. You can check out a narrative trailer for F.I.S.T below:

 
 

F.I.S.T will feature an interconnected world with distinct districts that feel like part of a larger whole. TiGames says the world of the game will be "packed with secrets", with exploration being rewarded through the discovery of combat or platforming challenges. Completing said challenges will net you upgrades or collectibles. As well as a huge world to explore, F.I.S.T will also feature an arcade-style combat system complete with unique weapons and combo bonuses. All of this will be wrapped up in what TiGames calls "a unique dieselpunk aesthetic" powered by Unreal Engine 4.

You'll be able to get your hands on F.I.S.T: Forged In Shadow Torch sometime soon. We don't have a concrete release date for the game as yet, so stay tuned for more info about this one. TiGames says it'll share more about F.I.S.T "in the next few months".

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
