The time has come to walk a new path and fulfill your destiny. After years of successful, unfailing service in the name of your Chapter, your Primarch, and the Emperor - your exploits and successes have revealed you to be a most worthy candidate. Now that the oath has been spoken and the ritual painting of your power armour is complete, it is time to assume the mantle of service beyond the concerns of your single Chapter, and unlike any you have ever known. Welcome to the Deathwatch!
Deathwatch is a roleplaying game in which you and your friends take on the roles of the bio-engineered super-soldiers known as Space Marines, undertaking the most dangerous special missions in the universe. Join an elite warrior brotherhood and face hostile aliens and foul daemons in the Jericho Reach, a region of the Imperium devastated by war and on the brink of annihilation!
As a Deathwatch Space Marine you have been selected as an exceptional candidate from amongst the finest warriors alive. United in this newly forged brotherhood, all Deathwatch Space Marines must learn to put aside their differences and work together to succeed in the most extraordinary of missions — or face the threat of total annihilation when confronted by implacable alien foes.
During your missions for the Deathwatch, you and your fellow Space Marines will earn renown, advance in experience and prestige, and garner special wargear only entrusted to the the most honoured and trustworthy battle-brothers.

I really liked the idea, but for a ebook its too expensive. For this price I prefer the book in my hands.
But its a good start, maybe they get it right next time.
great to be able to use rules from my laptop
If you think the special edition pre-ordershould have come with a PDF copy of the book, then why did you pre-order the special edition anyway? :)
Anyway, GJ FFG for the hasty digital treatment :)
Woot! Thanks for putting DeathWatch on RPGnow and DriveThruRPG at initial release! Very cool!
Downloaded my copy.
Too expensive, sorry.
At the risk of sounding like I'm beating a dead horse, I still think those of us who pre-ordered copies of the Deathwatch special edition should get one of these as part of the package.
