zeno e1366913938430 New Zeno Clash 2 gameplay trailer features much fisting

Every time I read a press release, look at screenshots, or watch a video about this game, I can’t help but wonder what the heck is going on from a narrative perspective. I get the gameplay – melee combat with an emphasis on hand-to-hand combat. But who the heck is Father-mother and why are we trying to save him/her? Maybe it’ll all make sense once the game releases on April 30th.
