The 10th edition of Warhammer 40,000 will feature new models, new rules, and major changes to the lore of the game. In the next edition, the rest of the Hive Fleet Leviathan has arrived and The Imperium has their forces on the other side of the galaxy dealing with aging conflicts. The new fleet is the largest ever, and Imperial commanders need to dispatch the an elite Space Marine Chapter, the First Company, to deal with the problem.
Brand-new veteran Space Marine Terminators will return in this edition. They will be opposed by different evolved Tyranids, such as more deadly versions of Termagants. Several other factions will also see significant upgrades as the new edition rolls out.
The gameplay for the new edition has been completely overhauled to create a more streamlined experience and greater accessibility. They have reduced the number of faction stratagems available in the core game to few of the best ones, and improved in turn structure, army selection, morale, terrain, missions, the ways in which characters interact with units, and other facets of the game.
GW also took the opportunity of the new edition to update the stats of every unit in Warhammer 40,000. When this new edition comes out, every datasheet for the game will be available for download. These changes will also cause a whole series of codexes to be retired, and new codexes will return over time to replace the retired ones. The new edition will also feature a brand new mode of gameplay: Combat Patrol. This new format essentially allows players to battle it out having just a Combat Patrol boxed set each (see "'Warhammer 40,000: Combat Patrol'").
