Since its foundation as an independent publisher in 2021, HAWKED marks The 4 Winds Entertainment’s third published title, as well as its first release on console devices. Steven Huot, CEO of The 4 Winds Entertainment had this to say about welcoming new players from new platforms:

The whole vibe of our company is to be explorers, adventurers, and HAWKED was the perfect tool to channel this creatively. While we are offering what we call the ultimate treasure hunting free to play game, we also tweaked the experience to be optimized for Turkey and the Arab world, including local servers located in the Middle East, and more affordable prices for selected countries. We also wanted to honor the history of our multicultural team’s countries, and HAWKED with its theme of recovering ancient civilization relics was the perfect chance to do so. In February we launched a set of Turkic cultural content in the game, inspired by the nomadic Yörüks tribes, its folkloric Zeybek dance, the ancient art of kilim tapestry and runic motifs, as well as other Anatolian historical references. We can’t wait to show you the rest of our work post launch, some inspired by the Amazigh of North Africa, in continuation of our mission of fostering a cultural bridge between underserved communities and the global audience.
For the launch of the PC and Console versions and the kickoff of the first issue of the game’s live-service, many improvements have been made based on feedback directly from players. The game’s UI has been extensively reimagined which includes improvements to loadout menus, setting menus and more. More improvements will be made during the season. Player movement has also been given a pass to make the player movement faster, more intuitive and improve the interactions with the island such as vaulting, climbing, jumping and more.

The launch also sees the kick-off of the first season of the game on console with Issue #1: Renegades. In it Renegades, the game’s playable characters, start exploring the mysterious X-isle with the help of treasure hunting corporation GRAIL. New secrets and mysteries will be revealed in the course of the season which will culminate in an explosive climax at the end of the season. A recent roadmap already laid out future seasons which will feature new content and a constantly evolving storyline.

For those that kicked off their adventure on PC, a lot’s been going on at the Riftwake. Bjorn’s been making headway on the Glyphstone since it booted up and started whispering about the Heart of the Island. Early Access PC players will will have a slight head start to discover further mysteries of X-Isle in a new Questline, while every players will run riot with the latest discoveries and additions:

  • 3 Artifacts to track down, loot from the Treasury, and add to your Loadout.
  • 2 Gear featuring all-new abilities to deploy on your hunts.
  • 2 Boosters bringing bonuses through legendary Renegades’ comic adventures.
  • 8 Glyphs to collect and advance to the final treasure.
  • Two X-Isle Encounters to puzzle over and complete in pursuit of Glyphs.

The latest news and updates will be shared on the game’s official website and social channels.

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 focussed 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.
