It seems like only last week
that we were given the first details on a Chronicles of Riddick
remake, and now we have official confirmation from Sierra that the "reinvention," now subtitled Assault on Dark Athena,
will be released later this year for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Besides the mandatory visual enhancement, the game will also feature a new chapter (entitled Dark Athena
, natch) and online multiplayer. Not mentioned in Sierra's press release
is the previously-discussed developer's commentary mode.
The original Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay
for Xbox One and PC stands as one of the few games that not only puts a film license to good use, but actually might surpass the movie
in terms of critical reception.
