In anticipation of the launch of Battlefield 4, development studio DICE has selected a number of licensing partners to create Battlefield merchandise and "further develop the profile of Battlefield in pop culture".

The products will include a number of books, including a Battlefield 4 novel written by Peter Grimsdale "that provides backstory about the game's heroic squad", a Battlefield 4 art book from Titan Books in Standard and Limited Editions and Prima Games strategy guides.

There will also be Battlefield-branded hardware, including PDP performance Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers and Qpad premium PC mouse mats.

Peripheral manufacturer Razer will use the Battlefield license to create a range of PC gaming peripherals and accessories, including mice, keyboards and headsets. It'll also produce a range of messenger bags and iPhone cases.

As for clothing, Californian video game clothing line Jinx will be selling Battlefield t-shirts, hoodies, hats, key chains and dog tags.

If your walls are feeling jealous, you'll also be able to buy Battlefield 4 artwork from online art store Cook & Becker, or Battlefield 4 wall graphics from Walls360.

Finally, BigBen Interactive will be releasing a range of Battlefield mobile phone and tablet cases.

Publisher EA has confirmed a Battlefield 4 release date of October 29 in the US and November 1 in the UK on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Next-gen versions will be out "this holiday".

Last month EA and DICE ran a fortnight-long Battlefield 4 Alpha trial, to perform a number of server-related tests in preparation for the game's launch.
