HBO has released the first official promo for Game of Thrones Season 7 and it looks sick. The new tease features Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen on a long walk towards their thrones, ending with a chilly hint that ruling the seven kingdoms is the least of their problems.

Season seven will premiere on July 16 and naturally everyone wants to know what will happen, who will die and when Daenerys will unleash her dragons.
