In the wake of the Star Wars: Battlefront news coming out of Celebration Anaheim, Del Rey has made official what we already suspected. A Star Wars: Battlefront novel is coming this fall, to be written by Alexander Freed, one of the writers for Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars: The Old Republic comic series and a former staff writer at BioWare.
Del Rey’s actually giving out sampler books for Battlefront, and thanks to Vaders Gamers we’ve got a description of the book:

It certainly sounds like the book will follow the soldiers “in the trenches,” so to speak, which will be a departure from the other novels Del Rey has released in the relaunched continuity. Personally, I’m looking forward to it, and cannot wait to find out more.
