Earlier today, the third Rising Leviathan dataslate went up for pre-orders. Like the other two, it consists of 5 new formations to add to the series reaching a total of 15 new formations for Tyranids to exploit. With the last one being relatively popular with Tyranid players, the formations in this series really add to the flexibility of what Tyranids can put on the tabletop.

From the previews we see can see a little bit of information regarding the 5 formations that this will include.
A Trygon Prime is at the center of this formation, bringing along with it Raveners and other "burrowing bio-constructs"
1 Trygon Prime
3 Ravener Broods
This formation seems to be controlled by Tyranid Warriors guiding a massive wall of tyranid ranged attacks.
There are 3 more formations that we have not yet seen from the previews or samples, but the Black Library has said they will be covering this release this coming Tuesday.
