We are just weeks away from Season 8 of Game of Thrones releasing, and nothing can contain this excitement!
While nothing can come close to actually watching the final season, however, the long-awaited Games of Thrones Winter is Coming game is now out for browsers and it's going to make you very happy.
This is a real-time strategy PC browser game, which also has a desktop app. The game has been developed by China-based Yoozoo Games and has been officially licensed by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment under license from HBO.
Currently, the game only is available in English, however, support for more languages is scheduled to follow.
Game of Thrones Winter is Coming browser game: How do I get started?
Starting off with the game is pretty simple. Head to the official website of the browser game, where you will be asked to sign up, unless you already have a GT Arcade account. You can sign up using a Google account, Facebook account, or just create one with GT Arcade. (Would strongly recommend not logging in using your Facebook account.)
Once you are signed in, you will have an option to either continue playing on the browser, or you could also download the desktop app of the game. You will require Windows 7 or later to use the desktop app.
Also note, when we were trying to test the game, we did run into issues with the game loading properly on the browser. If that happens with you too, you'll have to go ahead and download the app.

Further, through the game, you will see many unlockable exclusive storylines through a host of PvE (player versus enemy) missions, where you will be pitted against hordes of roaming bandits and assassins for a chance to earn valuable rewards.
