Leaked images of the gigantic Kraken in Sea of Thieves have surfaced, and this terrifying beast is a lot larger than anticipated.
This game has so much potential longterm. Hopefully they don't f*#k it up
Kraken battles! Just what I asked For! Oh shieeeee
Hey, who doesn't like a good Kraken battle?
4 people so far don’t like Kraken battles
There won't be any battles, kraken is a random occurence. Dislike.
@PEEPer The Kraken should be a random occurrence. You should have to hunt for the kraken if you want to take it on. Not, go to such and such area where he is always located. And don't tell me once you come across the kraken there won't be a battle that ensues! Maybe you should read the article instead of being a clueless fool who never planned on getting the game anyway.
I'm gonna have to check this game out more. I wasn't really interested at first, but the more detail that's released makes it sound like a pretty cool game.
OMG! That´s gonna be HUGE! Just imagine; you´re are in the middle of a ship battle then you have to deal with a gigantic Kraken at the same time! O.o Tension, Fear, Panic and Dispair! I´m ready! (i think) Lol!
if your in a ship battle I imagine it would be wise to forget the battle and join forces to battle the kraken, there're the kind of decisions that will make sea of thieves great
@mark_parch I agree. :)
fuck that, parch.. this is my glory. Im sinking you, buddy. Either before or after.
Secret Pirate Hideout!
that looks awesome, i can’t wait for my first Kraken battle
look at the freaking size of it. the more I see of this game the more excited I get
It won't be a battle. Do you ever read the article in the op?
You do fight the Kraken and can defeat it for rewards. https://www.windowscentral....
Yea did u even read lol it's not a boss fight but when it appears u can obviously fight it lol
Yes it says you need to attack it to set your ship free and should imagine attack it to defeat it and stop hounding you..
Wouldn't you call fighting something that is a lot bigger than your ship a battle as it would be a battle for survival would it not ?
from the images that Kraken looks like its going to do some damage.
No single player and forced multiplayer. It's just one game mode, not good enough; there's fuck all to do
Look at the size of that freakin' Kraken!
IT WILL BE A RANDOM OCCURENCE. NOT A BATTLE
And on the random occurrence it does pop up, then you can battle it. No need to shout fella. “these tentacles will need to be attacked in order to set a ship free from its grasp.”
@peeper Seriously man chill out! We get that you don't want to play this game yet you purposely try and rain on people's parades. Go play your PlayStation and shut up!
Well you can fight a bigass Kraken. That's one thing to do.
Some people just find it hard to be social, you can find these people are often the ones who play offline or in single player games. Also play online but by themselves still.
Make some friends?
@ossyc you can play solo, I have many times in the alpha and beta and had fun but you should try and get some friends if you don't like solo
Have you played it yet, obviously no.
Mako what are you on about 😂 What game have you been watching or playing to come up with that dribble? Oh I see your one of them singleplayer gamers that have hard times online 😉
Who said I was butthurt 😂 I just pointed out the dribble! Not all games are for everyone online gaming can be hard!
Are you jealous or something? You keep on saying people are butthurt when it maybe you who is? Do you only have a Sony console and a low powered PC?
Yep I knew I was right! Sony console and low end PC! It’s ok it might still come to Sony or you could upgrade your pc my friend, just don’t take it out on others 😂
Correct me if I'm wrong, but if this is your view, wouldn't it also mean that no multiplayer means forced singeplayer? Not good enough; there's fuck all to do. It's just one game mode.
When did they announce no single player? Has it been removed or are you just spreading fud like always.
If there is no single player.... of course there is no. How is that forced?
a lot bigger than i was expecting
That's what she said!
Unleash the Kracken! Now where did I leave that Medusa’s head? Look, it’s over there. Oh shit I just looked at it......
Oh man, speaking of Medusa it would be amazing if they made some islands inspired by those in the Odyssey. Islands with Ogres were your crew can be captured and you have to escape, etc . . .
I would just start attacking ships when other people are fighting the kraken, FREE LOOT!
And then get krakened, do you think that kraken is not going to turn on you once the rest are dead.
Ill bring sleeping powder for the kraken. Dont worry, grown up davy jones wont take me down with him
these are the things that will make sea of thieves so much fun. you never know whats going to happen when other crews are involved
Then the Kraken kills you also
This game is everything my body ever needs!!! I can't wait to become a legendary pirate!!! :D
this game STILL looks like it lacks any real endgame.. A LOT of you still maintain that.. the fun to be had is with your friends on this game and i totally get that but just as a base game... this game just doesn't look like it! I mean lets be serious here, Would No Man's Sky really have been THAT MUCH of a better experience if it had it's online mode...?
They detailed the end game recently. It is absolutely false and ignorant to state that it doesn't have an end game lol. Time to find something else to complain about.
@MakoD You can't say there is a lack of a game and then proceed to have a paragraph of stuff that is in the game. There are no NPC ships by design. They want you to know that if you see another ship on the horizon, it is another group of actual players. Players that may want to chase you down, attack you, or run and hide to protect their precious loot. Another actual player who could be acting as a commercial vessel, transporting cargo to the trading company. The unpredictability of player interaction is a big part of the draw. There are, however, NPC forts that you can invade and take control of. Can you elaborate on large scale boat to boat combat? People talk about Black Flag being a great pirate game but I don't recall anything special about the ship combat in that game that. You are still hurling cannonballs. Seems to me what you are looking for is a single player game with pirates. Which I guess would lead me to suggest Black Flag since that is a single player game with pirates. NPC's don't make a game what it is. I really feel that you are asking this game to be something it was never designed to be. Maybe you should just move on.
are you stupid...? loool You think the endgame being more of what you were doing before the endgame is real endgame!? ¬__¬.. you fool... The game sounds a lot like destiny in terms of what the endgame is looking like and that game gets slated! so im gonna need you Xbox fanboys to keep that SAME energy when this game comes out and has repetitive/monotonous endgame that gets old fast!
@Atanasrikard You're clearly a huge fan of this game so you're not being objective at all! just like @MakoD said i too have LITERALLY spent HOURS watching this game being played and till today i dont see what the point is.... it literally seems like SUCH a time sink for such little return... the banter with your friends i get... but in terms of what this game is.. it's LITERALLY a fetch quest simulator lool...? so i dont understand how you all can sit here and tell me IM the one whos stupid for not understanding the game or thinking there is no real endgame!
Rofl @ MakoD Well by your logic, just because you label it not end game... doesn't make it so. Now who do I believe?
@Prince You insult and call everyone who doesn't agree with you a fanboy, then claim I am not objective? I, actually, have more basis for being objective as I have actually played the game, unlike you who's bias against Xbox clearly skews your "objectivity." I like the game because I have actually PLAYED the game. But clearly I am not being objective because of that reason. P.S. I could boil down every game into it's rudimentary systems as well, just a fetch quest, just a timed run, just a kill quest, etc, etc. This will be the last response you get from me as I barely felt you deserved a response in the first place. @MakoD Have you heard the adage, "simple to learn, difficult to master"? Though I find it hilarious that you talk about a 4 year old being able to play but the link you provided was from an apparent 25 year gaming veteran who couldn't even figure out those "simple 4 year old" controls. I like that the sword/gunplay isn't just button mash. Do you hold you sword up to parry his attack and hope he doesn't switch to a gun on you? Do you go for a heavy slash and fear him getting in some quick shots before dodging to the side? You need to actually aim down the barrel of the gun for your shots. You don't have a magical crosshair that shows you where your shot is going to go. That, by the way, holds true for firing cannons as well. The game has physics, you have to know what angle to fire, how far to lead your target, etc. Those that have put the time in and are skilled with these weapons will be successful far more often then someone who isn't. Just because what you watched didn't show any strategy or skill, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. This game is nothing like a walking simulator, you are being purposefully condescending with that statement and it reeks of a bias you claim not to have. Elaborate on the "take all the cool stuff out" statements you have made. I have a feeling I already know why you say that but I don't want to make assumptions.
Hold on.....you and Make watched hours of a BETA and Don like it? ROFL if you watched hours of a game especially a beta/alpha you like the game. No way on Earth I'm wasting my time watching vids of a game I don't like for hours xD stop sipping the haterade and go to an article about a game you like while the rest of us be hyped about fighting a kraken, okay? You're right it has no end game. It will have continuous content. GTA 5 mp has no end game, most open world mp don't. Now go run along and play those sp games you love and stop hating on this mp game
no im actually being serious.. i've watched a f*ck ton of this game loool... i tend to watch gameplay of it when im on the phone to my girl or something like that so its on in the background while im on the phone.. or genuinely when my youtube suggests videos for me obvo because i've seen other videos.. like i can LITERALLY describe for you videos ive seen thats how many videos i've seen.... My point ISN'T that this game is a BAD game... not by any stretch of the imagination is it a bad game... My point is there is no endgame... and surely this game with its lack of anything else OTHER than fetch quests would get repetitive and a chore to play...? do you get what im trying to say... like Destiny... Edit: Also to your GTA V comment... thats not what endgame means bro lool... endgane doesn't LITERALLY mean what you do to finish the game lool... it's just referring to having things to do to keep you in the game past the initial 'completion' and GTA V has PLENTYYYYYYY for you to do from story missions, heists, competitive game modes, coop game modes, racing, hunting, collection vehicles! theres SOOOOO much so that was a TERRIBLE example to give because it proves my point about Sea of Thieves lack of endgame lool... And in terms of the kraken im calling it from now... you dont fight the whole thing... just whatever teenticles that are holding your ship from progressing and you fight to get free rather than a full blown boss battle. Considering Rare have already said it's not a boss battle lool.
You haven't even played the game so STFU on the "nothing to do" talk
looool... i doint understand why needing to play it has anything to do with my point you fool loool
Seems like something that should be saved for people who've put time into the game but since this is a play with anyone anytime i think it will become quite boring besides the other randomness that can happen when other people are also attacking the kracken or you
Why? Why does the kraken have to be reserved only for those who've put time into the game? There are no levels in this game. Why shouldn't you be able to play with anyone at anytime? What if your friend picks up the game a month after you do? Should they be denied the ability to do something with you and receive credit, simply because they haven't reached that point yet? Why do people continuously want to pigeonhole something into something it's not designed to be? I like the design decisions they have made thus far in this game.
well yea otherwise it gets boring. and remember its just my opinion. and if you read it i said the fight would be boring besides the other things other groups can do. just think the ppl are gonna be left wanting more. not everyone is in to dressup and virtual drinking. games like this need a sense of accomplishment but oh well to each his own
@jukins If you didn't want your opinion disagreed with, you shouldn't have stated it. You said it would be boring, how do you know? You haven't played. Not everyone wants those things, but a lot of people actually like those things. Not to mention there is a sense of accomplishment as there will be certain things you can only obtain my completing certain things, like defeating the kraken.
"Leaked"...uh huh. You mean released.
Released? Can you point me in the direction where these have been officially set loose? If not, then yes, I mean leaked. If Rare / MS have released these images, or another outlet in an official capacity, I'll be more than happy to edit the post. Thanks.
Looks neat. Let's hope you Xbox peeps buy this game then.
With it being a part of Xbox Game Pass the day that it launches, I suspect many will just take that option.
I think that will happen also. Microsoft should have waited a while after Sea Of Thieves launched.
