HAWKED is now available in Preview for Xbox Insiders!

Look alive, Renegades! We’re thrilled to invite Xbox Insiders to experience HAWKED from December 7th until December 11th. Developed and published by MY.GAMES, this brand-new challenger in the extraction shooter genre promises all-out PvPvE action, troves of treasure and customization options, and solid teamplay wrapped in a vibrant, pulpy comic book package.

Play HAWKED to loot 20 exclusive cosmetic rewards via the Renegade Pass #0—yours to keep even in the full version of HAWKED! Master your extraction skills in online crossplay matches before the game launches as a free-to-play title on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One in early 2024. For more details about HAWKED, visit the website at playhawked.com.


HAWKED is an online extraction shooter where you can embark on the ultimate treasure hunt. Play solo or team up in 2-player or 3-player squads to explore the mysterious island paradise called X-Isle, stuffed with lush plains, dense jungles, gorgeous beaches, and no shortage of ancient ruins to raid.

Your goal is to solve puzzles, retrieve enough Glyphs to unlock Treasuries, and then claim and extract the shimmering Artifacts that lie in wait. But stay frosty—you’re not alone! You’ll have to outfox and outgun hordes of monstrous Disciples and rival Renegades alike in explosive PvPvE battles if you want to make it out alive with your haul.

Switch up your playstyle on the go with new weapons and ammo to stay ahead of the competition. You can also customize your loadout with Gear, Boosters, and extracted Artifacts to enjoy perks for an extra edge.

Think you’re up to the task? Become a Renegade, hop aboard the Riftwake to X-Isle, and prepare for the treasure hunt of a lifetime!
