Renegade Rally Trailer | HAWKED

Amsterdam — Nov. 30, 2023 — Publisher and developer MY.GAMES launched HAWKED into Early Access. MY.GAMES also showed off the first hints of the future of the game with an exciting teaser for an upcoming ‘issue’ of the game during the PC Gamer Show: Most Wanted liveshow. HAWKED is available now on PC via the MY.GAMES Launcher and Steam, with a console version planned for Early 2024.

As a further incentive to join the Early Access, MY.GAMES has launched the ‘Renegade Rally’ campaign. Players that enlist during the rally will receive free in-game content and a chance at winning special prizes, which includes a lifetime supply of premium currency. More information on the Renegade Rally can be found on the website.

HAWKED is an extraction-shooter in which teams of up to three players or solo race to collect and extract Artifacts from a remote island called X-Isle. Players (also known as Renegades) compete against each other to secure and extract Artifacts that can only be reached by fighting monsters, other players, solving puzzles and avoiding traps.

The first team to successfully extract Artifacts from the island wins the session. To ensure that every session is rewarding, players can also extract smaller treasures, and leave the island (dead or alive) with useful currency they can spend on improving their character.

Fight Dirty

Scavenge guns and ammo to fight other players and monsters in PvPvE encounters across the island. Strategically use your environment and utilize underhanded tactics to get the better of your opponents. Set up ambushes while other players are solving puzzles, or use the trap filled tombs to your advantage by luring other teams to their doom, no tactic or trick is above reproach when securing the artifact.

Customize your Renegade

HAWKED offers deep character customization. With a huge suite of apparel pieces, hairstyles and colors to visually customize their characters, players can mix-and-match Artifacts, gear, and boosters to create their ultimate treasure hunter and attune their gameplay to their preferred style.

Artifacts can be equipped once found on the island. They offer passive bonuses such as the ability to turn into a bush when crouching or offering a sixth sense for nearby enemies. HAWKED currently has 18 types of Artifacts. Players can combine three at the same time, and all Artifacts can be found and upgraded in multiple levels of rarity.

Players can use them along with 16 types of gears such as boomerangs, deployable covers, a scouting falcon, and more, offering a wide range of customization options and gameplay styles. Gears and Artifacts are upgraded using currency gathered from selling and/or dismantling treasure on the Riftwake, the game’s social space. From sneaky assassins, to team focused support, in HAWKED players can take their ideal Renegade onto the island.

An Evolving Island

Players must explore X-Isle, a recently-discovered treasure trove filled with loot. However, the nefarious, scaly Disciples have also laid claim to the island, and will not give up their conquest so easily. X-Isle is an enormous dynamic map, with each session challenging players to compete on different parts of the island. Its treasures and Artifacts are hidden in boobytrapped temples and ruins throughout.

Players will also need to bring their wits to bear by solving puzzles to open doors and unlock important treasure troves. Matches will feature dynamic events such as an enormous Disciple Caravan carrying a treasure filled howdah on its back. This boss must be defeated to secure its Artifacts. Over time, X-Isle will evolve through updates, limited-time events, and seasonal launches.

More news about the full launch of HAWKED will arrive in the near future. The latest news and updates will be shared on the game’s official website and social channels.
