THE BUZZ: Battlefield 3: The Russian is a tie in novel scheduled to release alongside the game on October 25th, written by Andy McNab and Peter Grimsdale. You can check out a preview of the opening few pages.
You can read a brief extract from the preview below:
Dima opened his eyes, a second of blankness before he remembered where he was and why. The call could come at any time, they’d said. It was just after three. Bulganov’s voice was thick with fatigue. He told him when and where. He started to give directions, but Dima shut him up.
‘I know where it is.’
‘Just don’t f**k up, okay?’
‘I don’t f**k up. That’s why you hired me.’ Dima hung up.
Four- thirty, a stupid time to choose to swap a girl for a suitcase of money, but he wasn’t making the decisions.
‘Remember: you’re just the courier,’ Bulganov had said, trying to swallow his pain.
EGM’s TAKE: We enjoy a good tie-in novel so we have something to read between long multiplayer sessions. At least it shows when companies are taking the game story seriously.
