The latest season of the hit HBO series arriving on Blu-ray in February has been fully detailed.

As previously reported, HBO has set 'Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season' for Blu-ray on February 18.

In the third season of the hit HBO drama series 'Game of Thrones,' the Lannisters are barely holding onto power after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), while stirrings in the North threaten to alter the overall balance of power in Westeros. Robb Stark (Richard Madden), King in the North, is facing major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters while beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder (Ciarian Hinds) and his huge army of wildlings continue their inexorable march south. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) - reunited with her three fast-maturing dragons - attempts to raise an army to sail with her from Essos, in hopes of eventually claiming the Iron Throne.
