Default Introducing Krakens...

While we wait for the next FF, here`s a little something we wanted to share.

This summer our art department is working on various "cool and big" things to add to the game. Talking about saving the best for last. Krakens, Dragons, Hydras...oh my.

We`ll follow the progress and try to show you a cool new unit every other week.

Lets start with the look at Kraken - Elven Naval unit.

Kraken Family
There are three types of Krakens of various sizes, strengths and abilities. There is a lot I want to say about these units - but might be best for you guys to experience them first-hand in the beta (CB3 or later), or see them in the new summer trailer (more details on this soon). Concepts by our concept artist Nikola Odin.

Very nice, love the concept art (great job Mr. Odin). Can't wait to here more about the kraken.

Edit: If I can get this answered. Why were the Elves chosen for this unit?

Love the concept art, though from a game perspective three distinct variants of the same unit seems overkill. But hey, we'll see how you guys handle it. So long as I don't see entire fleets of kraken knocking at my harbour door, I'm happy.

Those concepts for the kraken look awesome! And having a kraken for the naval units for the elves is just well, awesome! It's incredibly unique and cool and just wow! I didn't expect something like this at all! This is an extremely pleasant surprise, and I can't wait to see how it plays out in-game!

I love the little boat off to the side and in the last screenshot it has the "very bad day" thing pointing to it! It also really helps see how HUGE it really is.

I don't work on anything art related so grain of salt, but they seem close enough that you can reuse the model/skins and just modify them, they're not so far apart that it's creating three totally new units I don't think. At least that's the way I see it.

Looks great. The idea of mythical monsters is really refreshing. ONe thing that i would say is that it would be really nice if the krakens could be random events aswell as mission based etc.

Who else has magic powerful enough to tame such impressive beasts?

Elves will have a more conventional ship for transporting units. There's some concept art on Facebook if you're interested.
