The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Debut Trailer

Now in the publishing stable of Atari after a long and mysterious development cycle, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is finally beginning to materialize as a real game that we’ll actually be able to play relatively soon (relatively soon meaning Spring ’09, according to Atari’s current release schedule). Even with the game’s status in limbo amidst the fire sale of Sierra properties following the Activision/Blizzard merger, Starbreeze Studios continued to plug away at the project to the point where now it’s every bit as much a sequel to the Xbox/PC original as it is the remake/expansion it was originally planned to be. And now after all this time we finally get the game’s first trailer, and trust me it does not disappoint.
