Game of Thrones season 6: watch the opening titles in 360-degree video and look up the Titan of Braavos' skirt

Easter eggs galore, but also some pretty intense motion sickness if you get a little too into it

You've watched all five seasons of Game of Thrones; read the books, played the game. Scoured every last corner of the internet for scoops on what may await in season 6, and still you don't feel fully immersed in Westeros.

Until now. Short of buying a wolf and smelting old cutlery together into a makeshift Iron Throne, HBO has now teamed up with Facebook and Oculus to bring the ultimate immersion experience.

They've released an expanded version of the show's opening credits with a special 360-degree view; meaning you can soar over the skies of Westeros and Essos just like one of Daenerys' dragons, and give yourself some intense motion sickness while you're at it.

And, yes, you can look up the skirt of the Titan of Braavos statue as you fly between its legs. But don't be surprised about what you might find there; it's Game of Thrones after all. There's also a few carefully hidden Easter Eggs for fans; see if you can spot Drogon flying at the edge of the Dothraki Sea, or Jon Snow's loyal direwolf Ghost hanging out at the wall.

Meanwhile, you can read everything we know so far about Game of Thrones season 6 here; all before its premiere in the US on HBO on the 24 April at 9pm. It will be simulcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic, at 2am on the 25 April.
