HBO releases the Game of Thrones season 8 trailer, previewing the final season of the network’s wildly popular high fantasy drama.

Both the showrunners, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, as well as the large cast, have talked about how exciting and heartbreaking the final season will be, which means any one of the many battle scenes teased in the trailer could be the epic battle that was promised, which is supposed to be bigger than any we’ve seen on the show before.
