Developer-publisher MY.GAMES has announced that the upcoming multiplayer extraction shooter HAWKED will launch in Early Access on November 30 for PC via Steam, and in early 2024 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Additionally, as an incentive to join the Early Access, MY.GAMES announced the “Renegade Rally” campaign. “Players that enlist during the rally will receive rewards and a chance at winning special prizes, which includes a lifetime supply of premium currency.” An early access release date trailer was also revealed.
HAWKED executive producer Anty Duthie commented on the announcement in a press release, saying:
“With HAWKED we want to have an open and interactive development process that puts community feedback in a central position. After the positive feedback and excellent results of our Open Beta, we feel that Early Access is an important stepping stone in our road towards launch. We want to keep building towards making HAWKED the most fun and approachable extraction-shooter on the market as we make our way to a full release, and having our players be part of this journey is making it an absolute joy.”

Renegade Rally Campaign
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 rewards and a chance at winning special prizes, which includes a lifetime supply of premium currency. The more people that enlist, the better the rewards and prizes become for the entire group, players might be renegades but standing together certainly has its perks. More information on the Renegade Rally can be found on the website, but anyone that joins the Renegade Rally will receive a free seven-day GRAIL+ premium account status in addition to any of the other rewards that are unlocked during the campaign.
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.
