Includes full version of Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena not only challenges players to survive Butcher Bay, engaging them in an all new single-player experience, but for the first time in the Riddick universe also allows them to fight for their lives amidst intense multi-player combat. The game introduces the ominous Merc-ship Dark Athena, which stalks the dark reaches of space like a ravenous spider, searching for any helpless prey it can find to feast upon. Players must face a large bloodthirsty operation led by the dreaded Captain Revas and her slaves-turned-controllable combat drones, storm through death-defying events and battle fierce enemies in a fight for their survival and their freedom.

First released in 2004, The Chronicles of Riddick game features an original storyline that provides insight into the mythology of Universal Pictures' films The Chronicles of Riddick and the cult classic Pitch Black, which first introduced Vin Diesel as enigmatic anti-hero Riddick. The game blends action and stealth elements, as players navigate Riddick through the harsh environments of dank tunnels, dimly lit corridors, and other hazardous areas filled with guards, savage inmates and deadly creatures that prowl the darkness.

Features:
  • Multiple forms of combat - Unique blend of first-person range and melee combat with stealth kills and counter-attacks
  • Atmospheric and cinematic first person shooter - Great story telling in sci-fi environments handled with AAA Hollywood treatment for an immersive journey through Vin Diesel’s blockbuster universe
  • Multiplayer modes - Variety of fast-paced multiplayer and online options available for the first time in the Riddick franchise
  • Bonus material -Escape from Butcher Bay, considered as one of the best games of 2004, has been re-mastered and will be included along with The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
