Transform yourself into the Night King with this new Facebook app!

Night King Beyond the Wall

Excited for the Season 7 finale of Game of Thrones? Starting from today, fans can now prepare for the latest episode in a brand new way, a Night King-themed Facebook app that allows you to transform your face into his icy visage!

This innovative new augmented reality camera effect is available exclusively on Facebook, and was created in conjunction with creative technology and VFX studio The Mill.  Utilising 3-D scans and textures of the Night King, it creates a chillingly realistic experience for users who transform themselves. Tormund might have survived one trip beyond the Wall, but actor Kristofer Hivju is already getting in on the icy act!

You can access the Night King camera effect by tapping on the camera icon on the top left corner of the Facebook app.  You can also swipe right from the News Feed to open the Facebook Camera, a new in-app camera/capture experience that comes with tons of masks, frames and style effects that that can be applied to photos and videos.

The Night King camera effect also features a sneak peek at “The Army of the Dead,” a never-before-heard song from the series’ Emmy-nominated composer, Ramin Djawadi. The full song will first be heard in Sunday’s season finale and is also featured on the Season 7 soundtrack, now available from digital retailers.

Post your video using #WinterIsHere for a chance to be shared across the social media realm by the official Game of Thrones Facebook page.  So swipe right now if you fancy turning yourself into the icy Night King, and keep your eyes peeled for a fiery new Game of Thrones camera effect to be released post-finale!

      As the last of the landliners and all-around old fart, “swipe” to me still means “to steal.”
