Now here’s a developer documentary worth watching. Relic and THQ’s upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is a beastly game with some amazing ranged and melee combat that features over-the-top gore and violence. The new dev doc gives gamers plenty of that gore and blood as the devs walk gamers through some of the devastating weapons that will be at the disposal of the player.

I can’t think of any other game out there during this generation or in the past generation that adequately combined such a smooth transition of melee and ranged combat into such a satisfying battle experience. Many times games kind of stick to a specific action-oriented formulae and do a half-done job at sticking to said formulae. Games like Dead to Rights and Kane and Lynch are the kind of games that come to mind when thinking about potentially good shooters gone wrong. With Space Marine it really looks like Relic spent a lot of time making sure that the game is a thoroughly enjoyable shooter with great melee combat to boot.

You can check out the awesome new combat video for the game below, and be sure to look for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine to launch for the Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year. For more info or pre-order details be sure to visit the Official Website.
