Fly-By of Korriban (http://media.xbox.ign.com/media/679/679264/vid_960085.html?mu=http%3A%2F%2Fstreamingmovies.ig n.com%2Fxbox%2Farticle%2F555%2F555606%2Fkotor2_100 804_1_wmvlow.wmv)

and the preview.

Korriban is a graveyard world that has died twice -- once when it served as the burial grounds of the ancient lords of the Sith, and again, when the end of the Jedi Civil War brought death to Korriban. There are half-whispered rumors and speculations of what took place on Korriban after Malak's defeat -- some claim that the remaining Sith Lords fought amongst themselves for control, while others claim that the Republic itself attacked Korriban and destroyed the Sith Academy on its surface. Whatever the case, there are few in the Republic willing to speak of it, and there are no Sith remaining to ask what transpired there.

All that remain on Korriban's surface are beasts and echoes, ghosts of the dead that still walk and whisper the ancient teachings of the Sith. To touch down within its windswept canyons and blood-red skies is to be filled with a sense of unease - then a slow dread, as the evil of Korriban begins to take hold. There are also tales of dark side beasts, the Hssiss, that now stalk its surface, and even more sinister dangers lurking within hidden tombs within the Valley of the Sith Lords.

Once the staging ground of two empires, now Korriban belongs only to the dead -- and their secrets.

if you have played kotor and killed both Luthara ban and master uthar then when you go in to the sith academy everyone you meet will attack you and although it sounds hard it is easy to wipe them all out as the sith have little experience. you should go to korriban last in my opinion. On thing you should know though is if you kill everyone in the academy once you leave you will not be able to enter again.

When i first saw the Valley of the Sith I started to feel like Im going to be ripped off when I buy this game, but it looks like there will be some intriguing elements to it.

why did you think you would be ripped off

I felt the same as T7, but it looks like we will be going into areas we never went in KOTOR so that's good, I half expected Korriban anyway, can't be a Sith Lord without going there at least once. :D

Watching the video did anyone else get this feeling "Quaid... start the reactor... free Mars!"... ?

:D

I'm wondering how they are going to work the obvious changes into the storyline. I'm sure that they will come up with something brilliant. I just hope that they change it up enough so that I don't feel like I'm playing the same old map...same thing with Dantooine.

PS: Thanks X_Fighter!!!

but what if it was just an extended map that looked liked it had aged a little like mabye we can actually now go out the other end of the cave and there should now be no more artifacts left and what happened to the academy. So many questions

I'm thinking the same thing as well, familiar settings will be nice, but new is always a good thing, in an RPG anyway. :D

Oh yes I didn't say so before but;

Thanks for the linkage X_Fighter! :D

Korriban is certanly a good addition to the game. I always loved the scenery. Reminds me of Egypt...

Mee too! :)

So do Darth Revans Robes, that's why I use the Hooded Caped version all the time, it has the whole Ancient Sith Egyptian thing going for them, all Darth Revan needs is a one of those Goa'Uld Gauntlets, a dark colored one, from Stargate SG-1 and Revan would be all set. :D

Oh, I am sure they will too. Probably along these lines.

"Ah, the slaughter of the Sith Academy...yes, a horrible and grim tail...at first, it seemed harmless, an occasional killing over 50+ credits, nothing that would really harm the Academy. But then...they where cutting each other down for 25, 15, 10! Pretty soon every time a quarter fell out of somebody’s pocket limbs would go flying everywhere! It was horrible I tell you!!"

They've already confirmed Dantooine, I don't see why they should put in more old planets. I want completely new locations, not places I've been to a billion times before:mad:

Well, actually the only ones that were in KOTOR confirmed for TSL are Korriban and Dantooine, this leaves Telos and Dxun, and around 3-4 possible others, that are most likely also going to be new(er) planets... hardly something to get discouraged over at this point.

Just my 2 cents! :D

Just my 2 cents! :D I didn't have the heart to tell him that his request was a little late. Maybe if we don't say anything he'll think that OE heard him and will change everything last minute.

I just think it would be more exciting if all the planets were new, it's only seven, so two old planets is too much IMO.

whats wrong with the old ones??? not good enough???

oh never mind, i know what it is. its the "new content" stuff...

can't say i blame you. :D

Lets not forget that Dantooine is going to be worlds different, literally(:p), after Malak bombed the life out of it. As for Korriban, it seems we get treated to more elaborite Sith tombs (like in JA:p ) and such. Meh, we'll see how it plays out.

Think Leviathan, Yavin Station, and the Star Forge. If they include more, then 2 areas out of 8 or 9 might not be so bad, especially if they tie the two stories together well and are presented in such a way as to make them seem brand new.

If I have a fight a bunch of frickin' kath hounds on Dantooine again, you'd better believe I'm going to be pissed.

Well it could be worse... Dantooine could be infested with more iritating creatures, like Mutant Iriaz, Rabid Cybernetic Gerbils, or something JA-ish like that! :D
