Starbreeze has confirmed its working on a next-gen makeover of The Chronicles of Riddick.

Assault on Dark Athena will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 before the end of the year.

There will be additional single-player content to get stuck into - taking place on board the scavenger ship Dark Athena - and an online multiplayer mode will be included.

Commentary is also expected to feature in a similar way to the Developer's Cut remake on PC, as is the obvious graphical spit-shine to show off the new floating terrafloppy-tehcnotrons.

The Chronicles of Riddick appeared on Xbox, based on the 2004 film of the same name. It took everyone by surprise, not least because the big-screen version starring Vin Diesel was rubbish.

The first-person action [with third-person cutscenes, obviously! - Ed] game displayed some of the best graphics we'd seen, and earned itself a whopping 9/10. Catch up with our The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay review to see why.
