Winter is coming and will be encased in Steelbooks with Dolby Atmos soundtracks in June.
In an early announcement to retailers, HBO has revealed that 'Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season (Steelbook)' and 'Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season (Steelbook)' will be available on June 7.
The Steelbook sets feature art designed by Elastic, the agency responsible for the series' Emmy Award-winning opening credits. Each Steelbook showcases a specific location that is significant to that season, and includes usable magnets on packaging featuring Game of Thrones sigils and symbols. Season 1 packaging featured Winterfell and Season 2 the Lannisters in King's Landing. Season 3 will feature the magnet sigil of House Frey and their ancestral seat of the Twins...the location of Season 3's infamous Red Wedding. The icy landscape of Castle Black and the Wall - where the brothers of the Night's Watch fend off an army of wildlings from the far north - will grace the packaging of Season 4, including a crow and Jon Snow's sword "Longclaw" as the featured magnet.
In addition to all of the bonus content from the previous Blu-ray sets, the Game of Thrones Steelbook is the first TV on Blu-ray title to be released with the revolutionary new audio technology Dolby Atmos, which delivers sounds and music to specific areas in the room, including overhead, creating a captivating experience that puts the audience right in the middle of the action on screen. To experience Dolby Atmos at home, Dolby Atmos-enabled AV receivers and additional speakers are required. However, Dolby Atmos soundtracks are fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.
