Game of Thrones: Season 7 Key Art Puts the Real Threat Front and Center

The war for the Iron Throne might still be raging, but with Game of Thrones now entering Season 7, there’s no hiding that the real threat is coming from the North.

HBO released the official key art for Season 7, which puts the Night’s King front and center. This seems to hint that the rest of Westeros will soon know what Jon Snow has been preaching for seasons: despite all the internal political squabbles, the fight with the White Walkers is the only one that matters. Check out the imagery below:

This refrain is becoming pretty familiar at this point; the teaser key art for Season 7 was of fire laced through ice, and the teaser trailer for the season similarly hinted at the White Walkers as the primary threat...

Game of Thrones: Season 7's Big Events Will Happen Faster Than You're Ready For

Game of Thrones: Season 7 will have a much faster pace than previous seasons and promises to be quite the intense ride.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) revealed to Entertainment Weekly he was shocked when he read the scripts for the new season and felt like he was lulled into a completely different pace. “I’m like, ‘Already? Now?! What,” Coster-Waldau said. “Everything happened quicker than I’m used to … a lot of things that normally take a season now take one episode.”

Kit Harington (Jon Snow) agreed, reiterating that Season 7 is “quite exciting” and will be “really different than any other season because it’s accelerating toward the end.”

First Assassin's Creed 2017 Screenshot Seemingly Leaked

What purports to be the first screenshot of the next game in the Assassin’s Creed series has apparently leaked.

Posted on Reddit (and confirmed as legitimate by “three separate Eurogamer sources”), the image would suggest a return to using controllable boats – a popular feature in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and it’s spin-off, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue:

First Assassin's Creed 2017 Screenshot Seemingly Leaked

While the screenshot doesn’t explicitly confirm the Egyptian setting we heard rumored last year, the aesthetic does seem to fit, and the quest text on the left adds substantial amounts of fuel to that fire: “Follow Shadya to Khenut’s villa.” Khenut was indeed an Egyptian queen, who ruled between 2375-2345 BC.

Also, a fun little detail: one mission will see you having to “Assassinate the Crocodile”. Wonderful stuff.

It remains to be seen ...
