Microsoft have started to tease some sort of Xbox crossover with HBO’s Games of Thrones, as cryptic videos and photos have started to appear on their social media accounts.

The highly-anticipated final season of Game of Thrones kicked off on April 14, and while there are still a handful of episodes to go before the battle for the Iron Throne is done, the franchise’s next move may already be in the works.

While there hasn’t been a video game counterpart to the hugely popular series since Telltale’s release back in 2014, some fans think there could be something on the way – especially as Microsoft and Xbox have taken the lead with some marketing.

Xbox FranceXbox France linked up with Game of Thrones to drop an limited-edition console last year.

What has Xbox teased?

A cryptic video was displayed on the main Xbox Twitter account on May 5, accompanied by a vague message of: “And now your wait begins.”

In the tease, flames are shown to engulf the screen in a similar pattern for a few moments, before subsiding and revealing only a small photo of the next cryptic image. However, it doesn’t take all that long to figure out that it’s the bottom part of the Targaryen sigil from Game of Thrones.

It’s not the only tease with the same message that Xbox posted to social media on May 5, though. Their official Facebook page displayed a similar hint, but swapped the Targaryen sigil for the Night King’s chest plate symbol, of course, covered in ice and snow.

Facebook: XboxThe Night King’s chest plate is also being used in the marketing campaign.

Will it lead to a Game of Thrones Xbox game?

Nobody is quite sure what Xbox is hinting at with these images just yet- but it’s definitely Game of Thrones related and not the first instance of Microsoft linking up with the hugely popular series.

Shortly after the start of the highly-anticipated Season 9 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, any Xbox user who decided to pre-order the batch of new episodes was eligible to receive a number of free avatar items – including a mask of the Night King’s face and a replica of the Iron Throne.

That has led to some speculation that instead of a game being released, there may be a chance to win a Game of Thrones-themed console, or potentially just more Avatar items on the way. 

Facebook: XboxFans could represent two of their favorite characters if they pre-ordered Game of Thrones’ box-set.

It remains to be seen just what Microsoft is hinting at with these teases because, as of right now, it really could be hinting at almost anything.  

The final series of Game of Throne is well underway, so regardless of whatever is set to come, we probably won’t have to wait long – seeing as there is already so much hype surrounding the franchise.

Thanks to how prominent these sounds are, especially with little-known songs that become super popular because of the app, you might want to make one of them your alarm, and it is actually possible now.

It’s not the easiest process, but we’ve put together this handy guide for you to make your mornings a little more exciting.

TikTok has fast become one of the most popular apps on the planet.

How to make a TikTok sound your alarm

If you want to make a TikTok sound your alarm, the first thing you’ll have to do is download the sound you want — but this can’t be done straight from the app.

Instead, you’ll have to head to a separate website, such as ttdown, and from there you’ll need to paste the URL of the TikTok you want to download a sound from, hit ‘GO’, and finish off by clicking “download audio file.”

From there the process is easy:

  1. Make sure you have downloaded the mp3 file of the sound.
  2. Listen to it — you’ll want to make sure it’s right!
  3. Import the file to your iTunes library, then into your iPhone’s saved music.
  4. Head to the clock app and search through the sounds available for your alarm.
  5. Underneath the ‘songs’ option, press ‘Pick a Song’ and find the sound you saved.
  6. Select it and you should be good to go in the morning!

Make sure to select ‘Download Audio File’ on ttdown.

Now, this opens up a whole new world of noises to be frustrated at in the morning, if the classic Radar sound just isn’t doing it for you anymore.

Whether it’s a song or something funny, loud, and annoying you need to get you up, this could be the best way to do it.
