The highly anticipated Chronicles of Riddick package gains an April 7 release date in the US, with Europe set for April 24.

If you found it difficult to muster up excitement over the oft-delayed, Vin Diesel headlining first-person action title that is also prone to being abandoned by would-be publishers, maybe it’s because you thought it’d never see the light of day. In a press release, Atari, at long-last has placed a date on The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, making for an April 7 release date in the US for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC editions of the game. Europeans will have to wait a few weeks to get their hands on it as its due for them April 24.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is a package of two games. The first of which is a high-definition reconstruction of one of 2004’s best-reviewed titles, Escape from Butcher Bay, while the second is an all-new adventure of equal length, Assault on Dark Athena. Starbreeze is also promising a brand-new multiplayer mode, complete with a gametype where one player assumes the role of The Pacifier himself, Vin Diesel.

For those still on the fence, Atari plans to release a demo come this March for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 users, though no word on which of the two games it will feature.
