It's now April, which means the beginning of the end for Game of Thrones is near. As part of its onslaught of promotional activity for the final season, HBO has released a pair of promotional videos for Game of Thrones Season 8.

The first is titled "Together," and it features brief motivational speeches from both Tyrion and Jon, as we see preparations for a battle at Winterfell. The second is called "Survival," and it also features dragons flying over Winterfell and really hammers home that this is the end.

The promos contain some footage we've seen before, but also some new shots that tease the epic conclusion to the fantasy drama. Watch them both below.

Game of Thrones Season 8 premieres on April 14, with the remaining five episodes coming each week until mid-May. While there are only six episodes, they combine for a total of 432 minutes of runtime, or around 7.2 hours. Here's a full breakdown of each episode's premiere date and runtime.

The full trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 was released in March. It focuses on setting up the the epic battle against the Night King and his army of the dead at Winterfell--for more insight, check out GameSpot's trailer breakdown.

Game of Thrones is ending, but a prequel is on the way, with X-Men: First Class' Jane Goldman serving as a showrunner for a story developed with series creator George RR Martin. The show is expected to start filming early this summer, but only pilot episodes have been ordered at this stage, so it's unknown if the program will get picked up to series.
