Riddick game trailer

100%

While it's unknown (unlikely?) if we'll ever see smooth-headed night-visioned intergalactic badass Riddick on the big screen again, at least we'll be able to take control of his digital likeness in hi-def glory and slice, strangle and shoot through various foes.

After a brief time in limbo, Atari picked up the new game RIDDICK: ASSAULT ON DARK ATHENA, a sequel to the shockingly good last-gen game ESCAPE FROM BUTCHER BAY. As before, the game utilizes Vin Diesel's voice and visage, not to mention creative input from the actor himself (his Tigon Studios is producing).

The game arrives later this year -- you can check out the new trailer below.

Extra Tidbit: Just to make it even more worthwhile, the game will come with an upgraded version of BUTCHER BAY.

Butcher Bay is one of the best FPS ever made and it was such a sleeper hit. I walked in the day it was released looking for something else and didn't even know what it was. It was an impulse buy and I was thinking "crap, this is gonna suck. It's a video game based on a movie that didn't get good reviews."

Boy was I wrong. I'd love a new movie also, if it doesnt happen, oh well.

Also, this ISNT a sequel. This is Butcher Bay with updated graphics and a new AREA to that game that never made

Also, this ISNT a sequel. This is Butcher Bay with updated graphics and a new AREA to that game that never made it in Butcher Bay. Dark Athena is a section of Butcehr Bay that takes place on a ship that Riddick tries to take over in order to escape. It was left out of Butcher Bay. So, think of this as an Expanded "Director's Cut" of Butcher Bay.

Either way Im excited...

Love the Riddick Character

I would love to see another film, but a game is good as well. if it does well, I am sure Universal might throw some money at David Twohy to make another film.

for anyone who knows...

anything about games, the first riddick game was GROUNDBREAKING, and quite frankly the greatest (and one of the only great) movie adapted videogames ever made.
the great thing though is how well they handled story telling throughout the game and how much you learn about riddick and the cool universe he lives in. very cool stuff, this new game is definitely in my top 5 most wanted games of the year.

BRING ON ANOTHER MOVIE

I agree Indiana. I thought Chronicles was pretty good/severely underrated. But I don't think that enough people feel the same way.

Awesome!

I read about this in the latest "Game Informer" magazine. Supposidly this will also include the full "Escape From Butcher Bay" (original game) with updated graphics as well as the new game. This will allow those who had previously not played it to enjoy it or a refresher for all those that played it long ago before jumping into "Assault on Dark Athena". Since it was released on the last generation of consoles (pre-XBox 360 or PS3), it is likely this will be the case. Whether it will be only

Whether it will be only on a "Special Edition" copy of the game or all is unknown, but either way for about $50-70 you will be able to enjoy BOTH Riddick games with the same physical copy of the disc.

Count me in for another Riddick game. Too bad there isn't a third movie being planned, because from where Chronicles stopped, there could be major stories to tell.

Butcher Bay was one of the best games of 2004, so I'm all over this.

Sweet! Looks awesome! Say what you want about Diesel, but I don't think there's any denying that the Riddick character is a good fit for him. I for one would love to see another Riddick flick.
