New ‘Game of Thrones’ final season teaser promises epic battle

Game of Thrones Season 8 Teaser Has a Battle of Ice and Fire

First 'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Tease Officially Released

It's here, what we've all been waiting for - a Game of Thrones season eight trailer has finally dropped and we couldn't be more excited. That, or the PR team at HBO is really harping on the whole "A Song of Ice and Fire" thing (the name of the book series that the show is based on) before the series concludes. But Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is still ruling the Seven Kingdoms and is hellbent on keeping her power despite threats from snow-dwelling, baby-stealing monsters and another pair of incestuous star-crossed lovers.

Game of Thrones will be broadcast on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in April 2019.

The teaser was first shown at a "Game of Thrones" panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil.

The teaser shows a dragon and direwolf overtaken by ice on one side of a table while a lion gets consumed by fire at the opposite end.

Looks Like a New Far Cry Will Be Announced Early Friday Morning
Now a leak of the game's Xbox One cover art has popped up on Twitter , revealing the new game's title as Far Cry: New Dawn. In the meantime: did you play Far Cry 5? The connection suggests this game will follow the events of Far Cry 5 .

On the one hand, there is dramatic visualization of the fact that fire - presumably Daenerys' dragon fire - must fight the icy forces of the White Walkers. "It's an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honors very much what [author George R.R. Martin] set out to do - which is flipping this kind of story on its head". But the story of Game of Thrones has always been about fire and ice, be it White Walkers and Targaryens, or aunts and nephews who may unite the kingdom by being in accidentally incestuous relationships.

Kit Harington stars as Jon Snow on the HBO hit series "Game of Thrones".
