Battlefield 4 isn't going to scrimp on licensed merchandise for fans to consume, not limited to a tie-in novel, art book, strategy guides, clothing, bags and a range of Razer products.
EA and DICE have selected numerous partners to "further develop the profile of Battlefield in pop culture." There'll be plenty of toilet break reading material thanks to a new novel penned by Peter Grimsdale "that provides backstory about the game's heroic squad", an official art book from Titan Books (with Standard and Limited Editions available, natch) and a Prima Games strategy guide.
US clothing line Jinx will provide branded t-shirts, tote bags, hoodies, dog tags, hats and key chains, while BigBen Interactive is developing a line of mobile phone cases. PDP is currently working on PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers.
Razer, naturally, has been quick to expand their peripheral line with a range of goodies, from keyboards to headsets and mice.
Battlefield 4 releases on October 29th for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - next-gen versions will hit during the Christmas period.
