News: Don't call it a remake.
Previously, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena has always been referred to as a "remake" of the PC and Xbox game The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay with additional levels and a multiplayer mode. Now it looks like it might be a little more.
According to Starbreeze and new publisher Atari, the Assault on Dark Athena portion of the game will be just as large as the remake of Escape From Butcher Bay. And the Escape From Butcher Bay section is now being referred to as the bonus material. So for fans asking for a sequel instead of a remake, it looks like now they get both from the further adventures of Richard B. Riddick:
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.
The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena will be released on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Spring 2009.
