This year’s SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas will see the introduction of “SXSWesteros”, an exclusive Game of Thrones exhibit.
Open to the public from March 13th-16th, the installation will see a number of GoT-themed attractions for fans of the show, ahead of the Season 5 premiere on April 12th.
Variety reports that festival-goers will have the opportunity to partake in virtual sword-training, simulating Arya’s first lessons with Syrio Forel. Ommegang’s new GoT-themed beer, “Three-Eyed Raven”, will also be available to sample (ahead of its April 1st street date). Finally, no Game of Thrones attraction would be complete without sporting a replica of the Iron Throne itself upon which attendees can sit, and SXSWesteros is no different.
In other news, heavy metal band Mastodon has shared “White Walker”, its contribution to Catch the Throne: Volume II, in full.
Catch the Throne: Volume II releases on March 17th.
