Intel gathered in previous missions has revealed that Operation Kraken is still a looming threat that demands your immediate action.

Karl Fairburne must utilise the cover of darkness and harness the power of shadows to sabotage an under-construction aircraft carrier, that is the new home of Operation Kraken, and ensure it never sets sail. The fate of the Allies hangs in the balance as you face off against Friedrich Vogel, former deputy to Abelard Möller and the new mastermind behind this diabolical scheme.

A new addition to your arsenal.

Kraken Awakes sends you into the belly of the Axis beast, but it also introduces essential additions to your arsenal. Immerse yourself in an all-American look for Karl with the new Patriot weapon skin and American Airborne character skin.
