HBO Releasing Steelbook Collector Sets for Game of Thrones with Dolby Atmos Sound

HBO has revealed that it plans to re-release the first four seasons of Game of Thrones in new steelbook collector cases that also will sport Dolby Atmos sound technology for the first time.

The new steelbooks will cost $79.98 and will feature cover art that is inspired by the show’s opening credits. Seasons 1 and 2 will be released on November 3, 2015, and the next two seasons will follow shortly after. The real draw here is if you own a Dolby Atmos home theater setup, because the technology can change the way Game of Thrones sounds if you have the right gear. Full details on the collector sets can be found below:

  • Season 1 packaging features Winterfell, where fans are introduced to the Stark family in the series premiere. The magnet for Season 1 is the direwolf sigil of House Stark.
  • In Season 2, the Lannisters’ influence is keenly felt from the Iron Throne and their sigil is included on packaging set in King’s Landing, where the season’s pivotal Battle of the Blackwater occurs.
  • Season 3 features the magnet sigil of House Frey and their ancestral seat of the Twins-the location of this season’s infamous Red Wedding.
  • Season 4 features 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. The magnet for this season features a crow and Jon Snow’s sword, Longclaw.
