Battlefield 3: The Russian

To be published exclusively alongside the game, Orion Publishing has teamed up with the biggest military thriller name in the world, Andy McNab.

Co‐authored by Peter Grimsdale, the Battlefield 3 novel will take inspiration from the 2011 game. The book tells the back-story of RU Special Forces operator Dima, one of the hero soldiers featured in the Battlefield 3 single-player campaign narrative. Having first-hand experience of the drama and trauma of real war, McNab and co-author Grimsdale bring an authentic voice and heart-wrenching perspective to the story.

Like the game, the novel is charged with documentary intensity, high octane action, and ripped-from-the-headlines incursions. Battlefield 3: The Russian paints a picture of a soldier struggling to do whatever it takes to keep himself, and his platoon, alive.

Battlefield 3, the next instalment in the internationally acclaimed Battlefield series, will be available in New Zealand on 27th October, 2011.

After three years of development, Battlefield 3 is powered by the spectacular new Frostbite 2 game engine. The technology advances the state of the art, and serves as the power centre that allows Battlefield 3 to deliver superior performance in character animation, visual rendering, audio/sound and physical destruction.
