A book, simply called Battlefield 3, has turned up on online shops.

Amazon and Barnes & Noble both list Battlefield 3 the book for release later this year.

According to the shops it’s by Battlefield executive producer Patrick Bach and Andy McNab, the pseudonym of a former SAS operative and soldier and novelist.

Amazon says the book is 400 pages long and launches alongside the game on 25th October this year.

Battlefield 3 Blog, which spotted the listings, speculates that given McNab is listed as co-author, the book could be the novel of Battlefield 3’s storyline, much of which developer DICE has so far kept under wraps.
