There’s a lot of talking and floating around in space going on there, but it’s very pretty nonetheless.

Seriously, Mr Atari. It’s December 22. Why is this a good time to release new screens of Assault on Dark Athena?
Because we’re here to write about them, clearly. Look at them. It’s better than wrapping presents.

Vin Diesel’s Tigon Studios sees upcoming Riddick title Assault on Dark Athena as an “episodic expansion”, and has confirmed that work on a true sequel to Escape from Butcher Bay is now underway.
Speaking to Eurogamer at Atari Live in London, head of production Ian Stevens said: “We’ve really tried to maintain that core experience [of the original] and embellish it for Assault on Dark Athena, which we see very much as an episodic expansion of Escape From Butcher Bay.
“We’re not calling it a sequel; we’ve got a sequel in mind that’s a couple of years out if you guys want it, and you like this and you tell us you want more.”

CVG‘s got a summary of an OXM piece detailing the multiplayer modes from Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, and very scary it all sounds too.
The title includes 12-player Deathmatch and CTF, as well as Butcher Bay Riot, which pitches three teams of four against each other.
Guards, mercenaries and prisoners are playable. A Counter-Strike-style weapon purchase system is in force in this mode.
More through there.

Good grief yes. Atari’s put out a proper trailer of The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, and it looks fucking fantastic.
Watch it on Gamersyde.
It’s got a 2009 date for PS3, 360 and PC, the game features online play, a remastered version of Escape from Butcher Bay on the disc, and a space-based scenario resplendent with full HD action.
Do. Want. See why. Thanks, Blerk.
