One of the things I really wanted to see in the Darkfall expansion was the Kraken. From the patch-notes:
A new huge sea monster that eats ships for breakfast has been added to the world.
As usual with Aventurine, not much information to go on. Where is he? What does he drop? Lots of questions but no answers. Thankfully a European guild has faced the Kraken, bravely engaged it and were summarily executed for their temerity. Not only did they face it, they filmed it, much to my delight. I present to you, THE KRAKEN:
A few thoughts here.
- He is HUGE
- He is MEAN
- Graphically, he seems to be very well-done.
- I can not think of another MMO that has something quite like this.
- Many, many boats and swimmers will be lost to this monster.
- Queue the Jaws theme.
Come on Aventurine. Patch NA-1. NOW.
(The link above will allow you to purchase Darkfall, in addition I will get paid 20% of the purchase price. This does not and will not taint my views of the game. If I don’t like something about Darkfall, I have no compunctions about saying something about it.)
Edited to add another new Kraken video:
