Atari and Starbreeze today released a slice of gameplay from their upcoming Chronicles of Riddick title, Assault on Dark Athena.

The game, which is now set for an April release (7th in North America & 24th in Europe) looks to revamp the classic Butcher Bay title, and throw in an all new adventure on Dark Athena and multiplayer into the mix.

The latest clip gives a good example of the gameplay, in a game where the dark is truly your greatest ally. Loved the films, loved the characters, I've got high hopes for this.

Looks interesting, the 1st one on the regular xbox was really good. Hopefully this will be to.

I beat Escape From Butcher Bay 4 times on the original Xbox and I have a feeling I'll do the same for this if not more.

I hate shooters that look like this, blocky guns and look awful to control.

EFBB was one of the best Xbox games - I hope Starbreeze can strike twice

Are people seriously saying this is going to be bad? Have any of you actually ever played the first one?

Looks great, I don't see why people are complaining, I cannot wait for this.

This easily looks as good as the best on the xbox at the minute, and if they can keep the game play as good as butcher bay this will be a treat.

Butcher Bay was hugely underrated by the general public, generaly got excelent critical reviews.

April will be an expensive month I think.
