The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena brings the hit first-person
shooter to a new generation of consoles. The action-packed game, a hi-definition
re-imagined version of The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay,
Assault on Dark Athena features an entirely new chapter in the Riddick Saga and
for the first time, intense online multiplayer combat.
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 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.
