Ships Ahoy - Assault on Dark Athena

Atari announces The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is now available in North America, offering Starbreeze Studios' follow-up to The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, as well as a remake of that first-person shooter tie-in with the Riddick movies. Playable demos of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions are available on their respective networks, and we've been reassured that an unannounced Windows demo is eventually coming, too. Here's word:
The Chronicles of Riddick Assault on Dark Athena contains a brand new full-length Riddick campaign in addition to a high-definition pixel-by-pixel remake of the universally acclaimed title Escape from Butcher Bay. In addition to the thrilling, visceral single player action, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena brings Riddick into the multiplayer arena for the first time, with six intense online multiplayer combat modes including the unique Pitch Black mode.

Reprising his role as Riddick, Vin Diesel brings his unique vocal talent to The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, creating a powerful anti-hero with a talent for chilling one-liners. Diesel is joined by a high caliber cast of actors including Lance Henriksen, Wade Williams, William Morgan Sheppard, and Michelle Forbes who brings depth and weary malevolence to Riddick’s chief adversary on the Dark Athena, Captain Revas. Starbreeze Studios’ proprietary ‘vo-cap’ technology ensures that every nuance of the actors’ vocal and physical performance ends up in the game, creating a uniquely absorbing experience.

In The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena the player takes the role of Riddick, as played by Diesel, using stealth and action to overcome the merciless crew of the predatory Merc-ship Dark Athena which awaits its prey in the dark reaches of space. Cheating death through a series of spectacular battles and events, Riddick will fight for his life amid a storm of malevolence and horror. The Chronicles of Riddick series of games takes the player deeper into the universe of Universal Pictures’ films The Chronicles of Riddick and cult classic Pitch Black, which first introduced Diesel as enigmatic anti-hero.

So, Atari are so worried about piracy that they put in draconian DRM and then they don't release a demo for the PC version and wont even say when it's coming out. They then release the game in the US and leave the rest of the world to wait. I wonder how this is going to pan out, good job Atari. Dunce

I even spent some time looking for the PS3 demo today, only to find out that it's not out in the UK yet. WTF is that all about?
