During the First Set of Credits
Names are shown hovering around the wreckage and scrap metal covered in petrusite that was the result of the final scene from the game.
After the First Set of Credits (spoilers)
There is an extra scene showing Helghast troops using a scouter and finding a ship amongst the wreckage and green petrusite mist created from the final battle in Killzone 3. The door of the ship opens and the scene ends with the Helghast troops saying “Welcome Home, Sir.” Which leaves the question: Who is it that emerges from the ship that they are referring to as “Sir”? Currently there are two solid theories as to who it could be:
- The most obvious answer would be Jorhan Stahl, he could have been able to eject via escape pod as his ship explodes in the last scene. The shadow that is cast onto the Helghast soldiers also somewhat looks like Stahl. However, in the last scene it is made to look like Stahl’s ship is hit with the nuke while he is in the middle of trying to fix the ship and would have not had the time to make an escape. It could have been made to look like that to setup the surprise for the extra scene and Killzone 4, or maybe there is another answer which leads us to theory number 2.
- The second theory is that the man who emerges from the ship is Emperor Scolar Visari, the founder and former leader of the Helghast who is shown at the beginning of Killzone 3 and is the main villain in Killzone 2. Visari is actually executed by Rios at the very end of the second Killzone, but many are questioning if that was the real Visari and if the man assassinated at the end of Killzone 2 could have been a body double for Visari, a similar tactic used by many leaders throughout history, namely Fidel Castro and Saddam Hussein. After looking more into this idea, there are other clues which help give the theory life, like how Visari’s daughter reacts when he takes her hand in the opening cutscene of Killzone 3. Visari’s daughter first takes his hand, yet quickly retracts her hand in disgust as if she realizes that the man whose hand she is holding is not her real father. Another clue is that the opening cutscene shows a ship leaving and hints at the fact that Visari could have left, which is further teased when the scene ends with a Helghast soldier saying “Sir, you have to move, the ISA are here.” This would mean that Emperor Visari is actually not dead and will return again as the villain for Killzone 4.
