Sea of Thieves: How to Find and Defeat the Kraken

From IGN - March 21, 2018

The Kraken is a boss-type enemy in Sea of Thieves.

It is recognized by the multitude of tentacles rising up high from the ocean depths, visible even at a distance.

Fighting the Kraken is a dangerous endeavor, as it can likely claim your crew and ship as you are trapped on all sides by its giant tentacles.
