HAWKED

Start of the Open Beta

HAWKED

07/27/2023 - Publisher and developer MYGAMES has announced the launch of the open beta of HAWKED, a new extraction shooter. Starting August 3 and running through August 17, HAWKED will be available in Open Beta on PC via Steam and the MGLauncher.

A console and PC cross-play open beta is also planned, with more details to be announced at a later date. The open beta kicks off the HAWKED journey, which begins with the release of issue #0. As the game progresses, new issues will be released that further develop the game's story along with major new seasonal content updates. The Renegade Pass #0 will be provided free of charge to all players participating in the Open Beta. Any exclusive cosmetics they unlock with this Battle Pass will be theirs to keep permanently (regular game progress will be reset when the game is fully released).

HAWKED is an extraction shooter in which teams of three players compete to collect and recover artifacts on a remote island called X-Isle. Players (also called renegades) compete against each other to secure and recover artifacts, which can only be achieved by fighting monsters, other players, solving puzzles and avoiding traps.

The first team to succeed in retrieving artifacts from the island wins the round. To ensure that each game is rewarding, players can also recover minor treasures and leave the island (dead or alive) with useful currency to spend on improving their character.

Customize Renegades:

HAWKED offers extensive character customization. With a huge selection of clothing, hairstyles and colors, players can visually customize their characters and combine artifacts, equipment and boosters to create their ultimate treasure hunter and tailor their gameplay to their preferred style.

Equip:

Artifacts can be equipped as soon as they are found on the island. They provide passive bonuses, such as the ability to turn into a bush when ducking, or a sixth sense for nearby enemies. HAWKED currently has 21 types of artifacts. Players can combine three of them at a time, and all artifacts can be found and upgraded at different rarity levels.

Players can use these artifacts along with 14 types of equipment such as boomerangs, deployable shields, a reconnaissance falcon, and more, providing a wide range of customization options and play styles. Equipment and artifacts are upgraded with currency obtained by selling and/or dismantling treasure on the Riftwake, the game's social space. In HAWKED, players can bring their ideal renegade to the island - from a sneaky assassin to a team-oriented support.

Dynamic Island:

Players explore X-Isle, a recently discovered island filled with treasure and loot. However, the nefarious, scaly Disciples have also laid claim to the island and will not give up their conquest easily. X-Isle is a huge, dynamic map that pits players against each other on different parts of the island each game session. Treasures and artifacts are hidden everywhere in hidden temples and ruins.

Players must use their wits by solving puzzles to open doors and uncover important treasure chambers. In the battles there are dynamic events, such as a giant Disciple carrying an object filled with treasures on his back. This boss must be defeated to secure its artifacts. Over time, X-Isle will evolve through updates, timed events and seasonal launches.

More news about the full launch of HAWKED on PC and other platforms will be announced in the near future. The open beta will be available on PC from August 3 to August 17 via Steam and the MGLauncher.
