Vivendi Universal Games and Vin Diesel's Tigon Studios have officially announced The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay -Developer's Cut for PC. Set before the events of the two films which starred Vin Diesel as the anti-hero Riddick-this summer's The Chronicles of Riddick and the 2000 cult classic Pitch Black-the new developer's cut offers players exclusive content in the form of a mech for players to control, as well as a new arena where players can test their survival skills against some of the most hardened criminals in the galaxy.

The highly acclaimed title, No.1 across European Xbox Charts, puts players in the role of the enigmatic Riddick and tells the story of Riddick's dramatic escape from the previously inescapable triple max security prison Butcher Bay, home to the most violent convicts in the galaxy.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay - Developer's Cut immerses players in the savage nightmare of Butcher Bay prison with voice performances by an impressive cast including Vin Diesel as Riddick, Cole Hauser, Kristin Lehman, Xzibit, Ron Perlman and Michael Rooker. Blending action and stealth elements, the game takes players on a journey through the harsh environments of the slam - dank tunnels, dimly lit corridors, and other hazardous areas filled with enemy guards, savage inmates and deadly creatures that prowl the darkness. Developed by Starbreeze Studios the game is expected to ship in December 2004.

In the game, Richard B. Riddick is an intergalactic convict, who at the game's start, finds himself captured by mercenaries and is locked down in the toughest prison in the galaxy. As this least likely of heroes, players must draw on their character's brains and brutality and attempt the unthinkable - escape from Butcher Bay. Played primarily from a first-person perspective (with special third-person actions), players will have to make maximum use of their environments to achieve their escape, including using shadows, subterfuge and distractions to avoid patrols. Moving and attacking in darkness is particularly effective for Riddick as his haunting eye shine gives him the ability to see without ambient light. However, stealth won't serve every situation and players will be able to take the action up close and personal. As Riddick, players will be able to sneak up behind enemies and snap necks or fight face-to-face using fists, elbows and grapples. Additionally, players will be able to capture weapons such as shanks, shotguns, or assault rifles and use these to cut a swath of destruction through anyone who gets in their way.
