Battlefield 3 novel by Andy McNab announced

Posted By | On 01st, Aug. 2011

EA has announced that they will be releasing a Battlefield 3 novel, and that it will be written by  former SAS operator Andy McNab and co-author Peter Grimsdale.

To be released alongside the game on the date of October 25, the novel, titled Battlefield 3: The Russian will see RU Special Forces operator Dima (one of the main characters in the game) and some of his exploits.

McNab said he will be working alongside DICE “to ensure that the authenticity and grittiness of today’s warfare is fully realised.”

“It is impossible for any single medium to fully capture the emotion and intensity of war,” he said. “The Battlefield 3: The Russian novel is one window into the experience, and the game is another. They complement each other perfectly.

“Working with DICE has been a fantastic ride. Battlefield 3 is going to surprise people this autumn. The story, the characters, the world and the intense action come together to create a resonant, memorable experience.”
