Your KotOR III Opening/Trailer/Teaser

Hey guys,
Just wondering what you guys think the Opening, Trailer, or Teaser of KotOR III would look like. To start things off, here's mine.

Revan's thoughts/voiceovers
True Sith thoughts/voiceovers
Combo of above
Settings/description

- - - -

We open to blackness, soft, if disheartening music playing. As we watch, scenes of destruction and fire, each including Revan as the apparent creator, fade in and out. As Revan's voice speaks, the words appear at the end of each fade out, faint as if made of smoke. They pause for a moment, before disintigrating as if whisked away on the wind.

I...I REMEMBER now...

Scenes of fighting; lightsabers spinning and Force lightning flying.

This place...it's brought back EVERYTHING...even things I DIDN'T WANT to remember...

Scenes of Revan at the head of Sith Starships.

It's become a LIVING NIGHTMARE...

A longer cutscene of Bastila/Carth (Depending on Revan's gender).

I know...I HAVE to get BACK...

Music seems to highten, creating a slight tension as a black shadow walks through a Sith temple.

But I CAN'T WAKE UP.

There's an explosion of sound and music as scenes of battle appear, each featuring at least one member of each of the Ebon Hawk crews. The music dies down again, as scenes fade back to black.

You're all in DANGER...

More, rapid scenes of each of the EH crew members falling in battle.

I HAVE to wake up...

Scene of slowly moving Sith warships.

I can't do this ALONE...

Clouded 'vision' of four prospective Sith Lords, each with hoods drawn tight around their heads, each with blood red sabers ignited. As scene fades, music ends.

But you(I) are(am) alone...

There is no hope for the galaxy anymore, Revan. Give in to us, and take your rightful throne among us. Come, Revan. We are waiting.

Music begins softly again, as STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC III logo fades in from the black.
END.


- - - -

So...what're yours?

I know it sounds weird but i want the player in this game to find the Ebon Hawk in a unique situation, maybe after 3 years it has been a feature of an intergalactic market on some planet. You go inside in looking for parts as it is someones shop now and he has a kiosk in the cargo hold and everything, the walls are covered with drapes and shelving which will be ripped out when you steal the ship by some means nessasary to the plotline. I envisioned a great scene of the engines fireing up with the force of them blasting outside market stalls away while the ship takes off and everyone is left in shock that this "shop" which has been there for three year has just taken off. Also, it'd be even more of a great plotline if this is a pre-hyperspace society/planet with no knowledge of galactic events.

Call it crazy but i think it'd work. It'd be unique anyway.


Waking up.

Mine would be:

The Sith Code (Whispered)
Settings/description
- - - -

While the Sith Code is being whispered, the screen is black, until the line, The Force shall free me. As soon as that line is said, Revan is shown (With Mask etc, much like Darth Revan). Admiral Carth Onasi speaks, "Some time ago, Revan went into the Unknown. To find these "True Sith". I asked the Exile to find him/her, but now it won't be enough. It will take one more Jedi to help them. A Jedi Padawan. Light or Dark.

(Music changes to Malachor Battle)

Many Republic/Jedi are shown against the True Sith. Many die.

"This is our last hope" Bastila speaks, "The fate of the Galaxy depends on us"

A massive explosion spreads all over the screen. The Trailer has ended.

As an opening movie on the game *Music Starts* dadadada K3:whatever and some message of what happened in the past.

Then camera moves down to view a planet the sith empire planet and then a ship is en route to it's surface(Revan's Ship). *Fade in and out* inside the sith temple the sith lord discusses the failure of the Sith Assassins and The Sith Lord sez: *Now is the time to strike blah blah blah* and Revan infiltrate's the sith base and then the game starts with Revan and find out what will happen to him.

My version of the trailer:
Some music playing and the scene shows the Ebon Hawk leaving Malachor V. Then the screen goes dark and the music turns into those drum beats. Some flashes of scenes like one where there is mass murder, smoke, a building (maybe the Temple on Coruscant or Academy on Telos). There will be some scenes where there are former NPCs each doing something, fighting dying. A scene where a lone Jedi is surrounded then the screen goes dark again. The voice of the Sith Lord begins saying something like they will rule the galaxy. The music then speeds up like in the KOTOR trailer and there are more fight scenes with the new PC and party members. The Sith Lords voice would continue throughout this part saying that the Republic may be rebuilding and the Jedi are growing, and one Jedi stands in the way between victory and defeat (ie fighting w/ Revan or against). The scenes get faster and the last one shows the Jedi maybe killing a Republic soldier or Sith and then the title flashes.

I know it sounds familiar but I'll work on it when I get a chance and explain better. Depends, finals week ya know)

My KOTOR III opening would be sort of different.

It would start off with the Force Theme music and the Jedi and Sith codes would be whispered consecutively (the first line of the jedi code followed by the first line of the sith code etc. etc.).

Then, the scene would shift to an unknown planet where a familiar looking ship has crash landed. The lone survivor has been knocked out by the impact and is lying on the ground. As the camera fades away, we can see scenes from the attack on Taris to the battle with Malak, to the encounters with the jedi masters, and finally the fight with Kreia. As these scenes subside, the survivor will wake up and realize that is surounded by an army of true sith. He will then take out his lightsaber, get into an attack stance and the trailer will end there with some dramatic music.

I'm not quite sure yet. Whatever it is, mine won't have True Sith in it. However, I liked some of FFWM12's trailer.

I too like elements of FFWM12's trailer, but...

1. The trailers the developers have created so far for the KOTOR series have involved plot elements from the PC storyline.

2. And while the visuals of your trailer are good - I think that I would end up disappointed if I played someone other than Revan after watching that trailer - and to start out as an uber freaking jedi doesn't work (may be a cool unlockable cheat that you could get at the end of the game...)

Maybe your "trailer" could be a cut scene that helps to explain what happened to Revan...

Trailers don't necissarily give the exact detail of a game, though I can see what you mean as not playing Revan. I wanted Revan to be the PC in the game, though now I've kinda given up on that hope Anyway, my version gives some background on the game, which I think would be hard to do if it was from a brand new PC's POV...

I think that they should say the first line of the jedi code and show someone meditating then a really strong voice like sion saying the first line of the sith code and like doing killing moves and they keep going until the final line of the codes they say at the same time and u see like an amazing move or something or a planet being destroyed(one always is in kotor 1+2)
