Celebrating the relaunch of the official Killzone website, Sony delivers the first trailer for Killzone 3, showing off the game's brutal new melee system. Looks painful!

Michael McWhertor got his hands on Killzone 3's new melee attack system last month, and wasn't particularly impressed. Perhaps if Sony had shown him this rendered trailer, with its bone-crunching, slow-motion strikes he would have felt better about the whole thing. Or maybe just the trailer.

Sony drops this trailer on us in celebration of the relaunch of Killzone.com, now your one-stop shop for all things Killzone 3 related.

Developer Guerrilla Games promises that the first gameplay trailer is right around the corner. Considering E3 2010 is just a few weeks away, expect to see it by then, if not sooner.
