Among the product announcements at the Atari Live event in London yesterday, was the first official trailer for The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena. Dark Athena is the long-awaited new-generation update to The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, the critically acclaimed first person shooter from Swedish developer Starbreeze Studios.

Previously intended as simply a graphically updated remake of Butcher Bay, Dark Athena is now being crafted as a full-blown sequel, including a multiplayer mode that the original lacked.

Check out the trailer right here on AusGamers. The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is scheduled for a 2009 release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

trailer looks pretty cool. i hope it's not gonna be based on that dark fury story... coz even though i usually love peter chongs animation... that story kinda blew chunks.

also... with trailers on ausgamers... why does a video advertisement shoot out from the side right in the middle of watching the trailer? it's not like you can watch & listen to them at the same time eh? O_o

Hope it takes the same approach as Butcher Bay did, that it wasn't just another shooter was what I liked about it.

Assault on Dark Athena includes Escape from Butcher Bay. It's literally an enhanced version of the original game plus a new single-player campaign and multi-player.

Well, it's actually the other way around now.

It started out as just a "next-gen" remake of Butcher Bay, then they added an entirely new singleplayer campaign as bonus content. Now they reckon that the new campaign is fleshed out enough to actually be the new game and so the Butcher Bay part has become the bonus content.

Oh s***. Didn't even know that this was in development. Butcher Bay was one of the best SP FPS experiences I can remember.

Ridd*** is probably the best recent Movie to game conversions. Probably second to only golden eye.

I dunno his nose isn't quite that black and his ears aren't long and droopy.

Close though.
