Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

Posted by LiveFor on December 4, 2008

Vin Diesel has done some truly dreadful things. I’m not talking about killing puppies, or stabbing old people in the eye with a zimmer frame. No, I’m talking much, much worse – he’s made some very naff films. The Pacifier, Babylon A.D., xXx, and the Fast and the Furious.

However, he has done some good stuff. Namely the character of Riddick in Pitch Black which is a blinder of a movie. Riddick is a very cool anti-hero (I even have a soft spot for The Chronicles of Riddick film – just always felt they had so much to tell that it all got splodged into one big glorious sci-fi mess) and he appears again in the new Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena video game. The trailer is below and it looks amazing. Think I will be picking this up when it comes out. What about you?

Interestingly it looks as if good old Vin may be doing something else good, namely lend his voice to the CGI feature length version of Rockfish. It is written and directed by Tim Miller of Blur Studios and is due out in 2010. Spooky as Neal Asher mentioned the short film of Rockfish in the interview I did with him this week. You can see the short there.

Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, players will not only be challenged to survive Butcher Bay, but will also engage in a new single-player experience and, for the first time in the Riddick universe, take action in intense multi-player combat. The game introduces the ominous Merc-ship Dark Athena, which sits silent like a marauding spider, awaiting helpless prey in the dark reaches of the galaxy. Players must face a large, bloodthirsty operation led by the dreaded Captain Revas and her slaves-turned-controllable combat drones, storm though death-defying events and fight fierce enemies in a battle of malice and gore.
