Atari dates Riddick: Dark Athena

Vin Diesel returns in late April.

Atari has stamped a 24th April release date on The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena.

Frustratingly, Americans will be able to play the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 game weeks earlier on 7th April.

Dark Athena is essentially a remake of Escape from Butcher Bay, which wowed on Xbox back in 2004. However, Atari and developer Starbreeze have tried hard to make Dark Athena stand out of its own accord, adding a new story and enticing online multiplayer modes to the mix.

We played the game recently and concluded that The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena will be one to watch this year; creeping around in the dark and snapping necks is ever so much fun.

Head over to our hands-on preview of Dark Athena to find out why.
