Game of Thrones: Immersive Opening Sequence is All Kinds of Cool

at . Comments

The Game of Thrones opening sequence has always been special.

Heck, it's something you look forward to when watching the series, because every time a new spot in Westeros is uncovered, it appears on the map.

The Wall GoT

Now the company who designed the opening, Elastic, in conjunction with HBO and Game of Thrones, has created something really special.

A 360 immersive experience that you can explore by clicking and dragging your way around the landscape.

I'll be honest. In a matter of seconds I was lost.

I was kind of upside down and staring at a bunch of rocks and bushes as the cool places of Westeros passed me by!

But that's why they have replay! You can play over and over and rediscover the 3D looking sites again and again.

From what I understand, there are a ton of Easter eggs to be found.

That's for you guys to do, so get crackin'!

And let's thank HBO for keeping us busy as we not-so-patiently wait for the premiere of Game of Thrones Season 6 on April 24!

Game of Thrones Quotes

Gendry: You sold me to a witch.
Thoros: A priestess. I'll admit, it is a subtle distinction.
Beric: We're fighting a great war. Wars cost money.
Gendry: I wanted to be one of you. I wanted to join the brotherhood, but you sold me off... like a slave. Do you know what she did to me? She strapped me down in the bed. She stripped me naked.

The Hound: But they didn't, did they? So what are you whinging about?
Gendry: I'm not whinging.
The Hound: Your lips are moving and you're complaining about something. That's whinging. This one's been killed six times. You don't hear him whinging about it.
