Well iPad sample stuff is out so let's see what we got.

From the Strategic Asset Cards:
Crusade Banner- Space Marines- A banner from the time of the Great Crusade instils incredible devotion. - Use this Strategic Asset after deployment is complete and nominate one friendly Space Marine Standard Bearer. All friendly Space Marine units within 24" of the Standard Bearer have the Feel No Pain special rule.

From the sample for the Apoc Book:
The sample only covers Chapter 1: "What is Apocalypse?".

Though of note I did see something interesting:
Defines 40k as 1 player on each side, Apocalypse as 4 or more players split into two sides and "Mega-Apocalypse" as 8 or more players split into two sides.

Also from the 40k Apocalypse blog:


From Darog's Company (claim is from iPad Sample, perhaps they got ahold of a different one than I did):
Thanks for finding all the cool stuff. That crusade banner is pretty cool, though a lot of stuff denies FNP in Apocolypse. It's interesting that it labels Apocolypse by number of players and not points. I played a 3-on-3 game last week that was 750 points per player. Definitely not Apocolypse.
