Any time new information comes straddling across the press wires, every game site and their cousin has a story up about it. However, whenever exclusive content trickles in from a site or two, it’s rare that the news receives any sort of mention. Well, this time a few things have been uncovered from a new hands-on preview regarding Chronicles of Riddick, and it’s all good.
TheGameReviews recently put up a hands-on preview of Assault on Dark Athena and further detailed the mechanics of the multiplayer and gameplay. While the shooting is standard-fare (based on the preview) the weapon handling is balanced in the single-player mode by having finger-printed weapons. Yeah, it’s just like those experimental weapons on Jagged Alliance 2 that wouldn’t let anyone use the gun except for the person who the finger-print ID belonged to. In this way, the gun-play takes a backseat to the stealth and melee tactics.
Regarding the shooting, it’s not all restrictive and quarantined, though; players can still use dead soldiers to fire weapons and open doors by dragging them around or using them as body-shields. Another neat thing brought out in the preview is the new multiplayer mode called Pitch Black. The feature will see a group of players manning guns and hunting down another player who will control Riddick. It’s like Juggernaut on Halo or Predator mode on Far Cry.
