HBO has been teasing the final season of Game of Thrones over the past few months but there has been little in the way of actual footage from the upcoming season. That changes today as the cable giant has released the first official Game of Thrones season 8 trailer. There’s plenty of unseen footage which offers us a glimpse of what to expect from the final few episodes of this hit series.
It’s clear from the outset of the trailer that all of the main characters in the story are gearing up for what’s most likely going to be the biggest battle of their lives. They’re preparing for the impending invasion of the White Walkers. The new enemy that they face is far more deadly than any else they have gone up against before.
Those who have seen all of the previous seasons would know that the White Walkers ended up getting their own dragon at the end of the previous season. That’s obviously not going to make things easier for the North as they try and hold their own against the White Walkers. That’s despite the fact that Daenerys Targaryen still has two of her three dragons.
Game of Thrones season 8 is going to premiere on HBO come April 14th. There’s definitely going to be plenty of action in this final season.
