While we’re all waiting and wondering what new Battlefield 3 details DICE will release next, we get sidetracked with something completely unexpected. Like a new listing on Amazon and other online retailers for a Battlefield 3 book.
Naturally, there’s a chance that this could be a simple error on Amazon’s side, perhaps someone confused the book with the game. However, the game is already listed on Amazon and available for pre-order. Other online retailers such as Barnes & Noble have the Battlefield 3 book listed as well.
According to Amazon’s details on the book, it spans 400 pages and is written by DICE member Patrick Bach, alongside Andy McNab, who is a published author and former SAS operative. It’s easy to speculate about the contents of the book, as it could be a simple “behind the scenes” or “making of” book. However, with Andy McNab as the co-author, this could very well be the book version of Battlefield 3′s singleplayer storyline.
The book will be published by Grand Central Publishing and will be released on October 25, according to Amazon.
