Publisher and developer MY.GAMES announced today that HAWKED is heading into Early Access after a successful PC and Cross-Play Open Beta. On November 30th HAWKED will be playable on PC via the MY.GAMES Launcher and Steam, with a console version still slated for Early 2024. Players that are interested in joining the extraction fun can already sign up now for the ‘Renegade Rally’ which rewards players with increasingly higher rewards as more people sign up.
Early Access marks another phase in the release of the ambitious third-person extraction shooter as it works its way up to full release. Andy Duthie, executive producer for HAWKED, explained the choice for Early Access as follows:
'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.
As a further incentive to join the Early Access, MY.GAMES has launched the ‘Renegade Rally’ campaign. Players who 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 who joins the Renegade Rally will receive a free 7-day
