Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:


The adventurers guild GRAIL has made the discovery of a lifetime: X-Isle, a mysterious island that harbors powerful artifacts from a lost civilization. However, GRAIL’s attempts at extraction fail when the island’s monstrous inhabitants attack. Enter the Renegades, treasure-hunting mercenaries with a penchant for plundering…

Squad up, board the Riftwake to X-Isle, and get ready to land the score of a lifetime in HAWKED!


  • FIGHT DIRTY IN PvPvE EXCURSIONS – When the chips are down, fortune favors the bad. Scavenge weapons and ammo to battle lizard-like Disciples, outwit enemies, and gun down other Renegades in an all-out hunt for X-Isle’s arcane treasures.
  • EXPLORE X-ISLE – This interdimensional island is as beautiful as it is mysterious. Use your trusty Traverser to run, jump, surf, zipline, and fly through an ever-evolving new world filled with mountains, jungles, and ancient temples.
  • LOOT ‘EM UP – Solve puzzles and dodge traps to steal treasure, then escape the island to extract it. You can use your hard-stolen haul to upgrade your gear and abilities!
  • CUSTOMIZE YOUR RENEGADE – Make your mark with customizable loadouts and abilities. Wield new weapons and equipment like katanas and grappling hooks to specialize in stealth, defense, or lightning fast looting!
