Throne of Ice in #ForTheThrone Quest found; TV Guide Magazine Season 8 covers & Browser game released with CG trailer

Game of Thrones Winter is Coming Videogame Jon Sansa

This evening, we’ve got a little roundup of little news bites and updates for you, including the continuing Throne-hunt, the covers for tomorrow’s TV Guide Magazine issue, a pretty cool CG trailer for a new Game of Thrones browser game, and more.

The “Throne of Ice,” the fifth out of six thrones hidden all over the world in HBO’s For The Watch viral campaign for Game of Thrones season eight, unveiled yesterday, was found in Canada mere hours afterwards, as revealed by HBO Canada:



The final throne hasn’t been unveiled yet, but we’ll inform you as soon as it is… and as soon as we know if this is leading somewhere more than a throne-sized easter egg hunt!


Earlier today, four variant covers for tomorrow’s issue of TV Guide Magazine were announced, featuring Jon Snow & Daenerys Targaryen; Arya, Sansa & Bran Stark; Cersei & Jaime Lannister; and, worryingly all by his lonesome, Tyrion Lannister:



We’ll keep you informed if anything juicy comes from their cover story!


I guess we can say the show’s made it past any demographic constraints, because apparently HBO is teaming up with Mountain Dew as part of their extensive #ForTheThrone campaign promoting the final season of Game of Thrones:



Finally, there is Game of Thrones Winter is Coming, the officially licensed PC browser-based strategy videogame that just released. I can’t vouch for the quality of the game itself, but I can say it was advertised with a pretty impressive CG trailer:

And that’s all for this roundup! This was a busy day, so be sure to look at the many bombshells we reported on earlier today, such as the prequel casting news and the announcement of a 2-hour ‘Making of’ documentary for Season 8. See you tomorrow!

    1. Goodnight Luka – sleep well

    2. The game trailer just once again illuminates the shame that no proper rpg or mmo game has been made for GoT/ASoIaF. These browser and app games are sad money grabs that are nothing compared to what could be, which would include characters that actually look like those in this trailer. All of Westeros and Planetos deserves to be created and explored in an open world game… dammit. 😡

    4. Hmm. Not impressed with those covers, but do let us know what’s in the story–appreciate that, thanks! ;D I’m still waiting on my EW copy. They didn’t tell you not to expect to receive it for 4-6 weeks! D-8 I thought I’d be able to read the 3/15 issue on, y’know, 3/15.

      And it’s a shame the trailer’s so much better than the game…

    5. I think they’re waiting a bit to unveil the last throne. There’s 5 days on the timer, but the others have been found pretty fast. The final one can be seen on the for the throne website, but when you click into the YouTube video link it says unavailable.

      Ashara D,

      Was thinking Westerosi world and thought of House Dayne then thought southern Spain. But this looks like where Margaery and the High Sparrow chatted and wasn’t that filmed in Girona? I can’t remember exactly. It also looks like Fort Lovrijenac in Dubrovnik but the columns don’t look right…
