WATCH: New Game of Thrones trailer

Game of Thrones S8The first official trailer for the last season of Game of Thrones has been released and it features the main players gearing up for a battle with death.

“I know death,” Arya Stark says as the clip shows the usually fearless assassin frantic and scared., “He’s got many faces. I look forward to seeing this one.”

We have little more than a month before the last episodes of the epic saga and the promotional material has been pouring in. There were the twenty character posters recently released and the covers of Entertainment Weekly as well as a short teaser with the Starks.

The two-minute long clip shows a great deal of action, as the season itself promises to be. We catch glimpses of the main players from Houses Stark (Arya, Sansa, Bran, Jon Snow) and Lannister (Jaime, Cersei, Tyrion) and other major characters looking distressed as the winter approaches such as Varys, Jorah Mormont, Samwell Tarly, Brienne of Tarth, Gendry, Missandei, and Grey Worm.

“They’re coming,” Jon Snow says ominously, “Our enemy doesn’t tire, doesn’t stop, doesn’t feel.”

Particularly noteworthy is showing both Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow leading their armies and facing Dany’s two remaining dragons together. There are rumors that this season will show Jon finally riding one of the dragons, because of his Targaryen blood.

“I promised to fight for the living,” a determined Jaime Lannister says, “I intend to keep that promise.”

And it’s clear that Game of Thrones will be filled with huge battles between men and White Walkers, fire-breathing dragons and one recently turned ice dragon. Who will be left standing or if anyone will survive the winter at all is the big question facing all fans of the series. as the long and complex journey nears its end.

Game of Thrones season eight premieres on April 14 on HBO.
