Fresh Warhammer 40K: Space Marine Screenshots Show the Jump Pack in Action

Richard Walker

Following our trip to Dublin to see Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (preview coming next week!), THQ has released some brand new screens for Relic's first foray into action shooter territory with the franchise. Showing Captain Titus in action once again, the screenshots feature chainsword melee combat and the jump pack, which will both be integral gameplay elements.

Without stepping on the toes of next week's hands-on preview too much, we can tell you that Warhammer 40K: Space Marine has a combat system that seamlessly blends melee weapons and gunslinging to great effect, meaning that you can slice up Orks then immediately switch to your Bolter for a few headshots.

So, is Warhammer 40K: Space Marine looking good? You'll have to check out the ten new screenshots in the gallery and then prepare for our preview soon. Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is out in August 2011.
