A Medal of Honor book is coming, it will be a prequel to the upcoming modern day series reboot (due for release on October 15th on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC) and is written by none other than Chris Ryan, the SAS hero turned military action novelist.

Ryan commented on the book and the game: “It is a real privilege to be involved in a game with such a heritage as Medal of Honor. Combining my experience as an SAS soldier in the Gulf War with missions from the video game itself enabled me to create an authentic and respectful account of an elite soldier fighting in Afghanistan for Medal of Honor: The Book.

“Bringing together the disciplines of literature and video games has been a new but compelling experience for me as a writer, resulting in what is hopefully an engaging read for fans of video games and novels alike.”

If you pre-order the game at HMV (online or in store) here in the UK, you’ll receive the book for free, although it’ll also be released in all good book stores.

As a fan of Chris Ryan’s books and EA’s FPS series, I’ll be looking forward to this one!
