Love it or hate it, the Killzone franchise is here to stay. Guerrilla Games’ oppressive first-person shooter series is one of Sony’s biggest sellers, with a Vita title expected to be deployed later this year.
If new information obtained by website Siliconera is to be believed, that handheld spin-off could take place directly after the events of Killzone 3. The website has managed to get hold of a top-secret script which Sony is currently using to record a teaser trailer. The dialogue – which is likely to debut at next month’s E3 – follows the same format of previous Killzone titles, with a commanding officer rallying troops.
However, apparently the dialogue is not written for a traditional male Helghast leader (if you’ve played the games you’ll know why), but instead a female likely to be Visari’s daughter.
Unfortunately, Siliconera’s source wouldn’t comment on whether the script is for the already announced Killzone Vita, or a brand new PS3 entry. We'd put money on it being the former, but stranger things have happened.
The dialogue is included below.
My sons and my daughters, today we take the first step toward our imperial future.
For years, this once-great nation has stagnated in the shadow of its enemies. Governed by scoundrels who flaunted the ideals established by my father, these traitors… these enemies of our race have diluted and exploited the triad of Duty, Obedience, and Loyalty.
This regime, this corrupt regime, has been dissolved. In its place does rise an era of stability and strength. A time of opportunity born from a promise that we shall return our people to their proper sphere of dominance.
