Featuring the brand new full-length ‘Assault on Dark Athena’ campaign, a HD remake of the classic ‘Escape from Butcher Bay’ and multiplayer options including the unique Pitch Black mode all on one disk, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena will be released this coming April.

The Chronicles of Riddick series of games takes the player deeper into the universe of Universal Pictures' films The Chronicles of Riddick and cult classic Pitch Black, which first introduced Vin Diesel as enigmatic anti-hero Riddick. In The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena the player takes the role of Riddick using stealth and action to overcome the merciless crew of the predatory Merc-ship Dark Athena which awaits its prey in the dark reaches of space. Cheating death through a series of spectacular battles and events, Riddick will fight for his life amid a storm of malevolence and horror.

Playable demos are coming our way in March to both Xbox Live and PlayStaytion Network.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena will ship for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on April 7 in North America and April 24 in Europe.

What, 24th for europe??? Why do they do it? They say to market it or due to the amount of sales in america but really the whole of europe probably beats america, it would be better to release at the same time than at different dates. Might aswell download the pc version from some site a few days after US release(*). I Liked butcher bay and cant wait for this game, high spec pc + amazing graphics=decent :). Any news on some co-op element? I know it wouldnt flow with the story aswell but it would be a nice addition.

*= Im jokeing really but this will probably happen with it being uploaded in a few days
Loved the first game, bit gutted I couldn't play with every @ high cause of ageing rig at the time, but now I can't wait for this :D
Yup - this is all good news. Thought Escape from Butcher bay was great, bought the original XBox version and the PC remix, the latter was really good.
Way to go. 3 weeks between US and Euro releases, and they wonder why people pirate? :censored:
