Default 40k Rule book

I just want to know if my rule book is up-to-date and if the rules in it are the ones still in use.
i have the rule book that came out with the 40k box set with the space marines and dark eldar a few years ago.

thanks

No, you've got the third edition rule book. The fourth edition rule book has a warhammer of all things on the cover and is hardback.

Are the rules for gameplay inside the book the same?

There are quite a few rule changes.

Yes, the macragge rulebook is up to date, smaller, and cheaper than the big one. It lacks only kill-team rules and non-standard missions, and some other non-rules stuff. I got mine for $20 on ebay. I had the same 3rd ed rulebook. Many of the rules are the same but there are enough differences that you should probably just forget everything you read there.

And that I think is that.

Rule book is up to date, the mini-book in the starter set is based off the fourth edition so it is also up to date. Not sure why you'd think they would sell a rule book that wasn't up to date but ah well.

Question is answered.
