Game Description:Riddick returns for a heavy new dose of sci-fi action that picks up right after the Pitch Black prequel, Escape From Butcher Bay. Use a combination of brutal hand-to-hand combat and explosive firepower as you fight your way out of an enemy ship that's hijacked your own. Not only does Dark Athena deliver an all-new story with more drone-crunching first-person action, you'll get a complete, remastered version of Butcher Bay, plus the Riddick franchise's first multiplayer options. Leading the way is the harrowing Pitch Black Mode, where one player takes the role of Riddick, and the rest get flashlights, guns, and the chance to take him down...in the dark, of course!
