The Kraken Privateer

Unleash The Spirit of Enterprise

Presenting the Kraken Privateer, a safe and legitimate way to seek the avenues of commerce, wherever they may lie.

Drake Interplanetary has partnered with Cousin Crow's Custom Craft, well known for its quality aftermarket conversions of large-scale vessels, to redefine interstellar commerce. This official conversion endows the ferocious Kraken attack carrier with a private yet legal marketplace. After all, you shouldn’t have to break the law to chase your entrepreneurial dreams.

Total Freedom

Commerce Knows No Bounds

The Privateer conversion turns the Kraken into the ultimate frontier outpost by trading its traditional cargo bay for a versatile retail platform with 10 separate shops. Build a commercial empire or lease space to other determined industrialists. The Privateer lets you carve out your own niche, your own way.

  • Culling inspiration from unlicensed DIY concepts, creative urban planning, and Banu ship-craft, the Marketplace provides room for each shop to operate comfortably and efficiently in a relatively compact space.

  • The Kraken's landing pads, ample defenses, and generous onboard accommodations perfectly lend themselves to the Privateer conversion, offering security and amenities for buyers and sellers alike.

ABOUT THE SHIP CONCEPT PLEDGE


The Kraken is being offered for the first time as a limited ship concept pledge. This means that the ship design meets our specifications, but it is not yet ready to display in your Hangar or to fly in Star Citizen. The Warbond pledges shown here include Lifetime Insurance on the ship hull. In the future, the ship price may increase and Lifetime Insurance or any extras may not be available. If you are interested in adding one to your fleet, a limited quantity of Kraken hulls are available during this event. You can also view a detailed schematic of this new ship in the Holo Viewer in the Tech Overview of the ship page.


As with every concept ship pledge, we will be publishing a Q&A post. If you have additional questions, there will be a forum thread on Spectrum to take your questions. Make sure to vote for the questions you most want to see answered. Look for the comm-link schedule next week to find out when that post will go up.


DISCLAIMER


Remember: we offer pledge ships to help fund Star Citizen’s development. The funding received from events such as these are what allow us to include deeper features in the Star Citizen world. Concept ships will be obtainable in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game.


Additionally, please note that the Kraken will be entering the ship pipeline now and may be released after other concept ships have been completed. The goal is to make additional ships available to continue expanding the depth and variety of the game world and give players a different experience rather than any particular advantage.
