Since its release, HAWKED has captivated players with its dynamic gameplay, immersive treasure hunting mechanics, and gripping extraction shooter action. The journey to 1.5 million players is a testament to the game's unique appeal and the enduring passion of its dedicated players, and took it as an opportunity to release cultural relevant content for our regional fans, such as the Turkic cultural inspired by the nomadic Yörüks tribes and more recently a series of items inspired by the Amazigh of North Africa and Arabic culture combine.

"Inspired by the rich tapestry of Arab culture, HAWKED's journey to 1.5 million players is a testament to the enduring passion of our community." Said Nazih Fares, Head of Communications and Localization at The 4 Winds Entertainment. "Our commitment to infusing local culture into the game continues to resonate with our players, and we're excited to keep delivering content that celebrates our heritage. As someone deeply connected to the region's cultural heritage, I couldn't be prouder of our team and players".

HAWKED is a unique 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) use unique abilities and multiple combinations of builds to compete against each other. On the treasure island they have to secure and extract Artifacts that can only be reached by fighting other players for the prize, solving puzzles, avoiding traps, and getting rid of local monsters.
