Well, most people will hit you with a ton of bricks for asking that.

I'm feeling mellow, so I'll actually answer your question!

Medusa V is the fifth planet in the Medusa system. It is near a strange warp thingy that helps ships go faster, but now that thingy is moving towards Medusa V. All planets that are swallowed by it are lost.

Meanwhile, every army is fighting on Medusa V for its own reasons. Tyranids want to collect a super deadly Lictor varient, Tau need time to study the warp storm, Guard need to protect the evac, Space Marines need to stop Chaos who want to make the place a Daemonworld, Orks need to scavenge parts for a spaceship to blast off planet and escape, and Eldar want to seal a Webway portal. All armies are racing against the clock and each other.

This is of course the backdrop for a large summer campain that will be loads of fun. Just play games and submit the results online when the form comes out on the GW site.

And of course, scattered all over this forum are topics discussing Medusa V, but for the most info, those two links Stam provides are your best bet.

You forgot Dark Eldar enslaving as many as they can and Necrons trying to shield the world from the storm so they can reap all life on it at their leasure

There was also a booklet in the June issue of White Dwarf
