HAWKED is a brand-new online PvPvE extraction shooter game coming soon to Windows PC and consoles. We want to encourage players of all experience levels, tastes, and backgrounds to jump in at this stage to help us nail the core gameplay loop, find out what’s fun, what’s missing, and what could be better.

In the Closed Alpha Test, you’ll learn the ropes in the tutorial, fight other players and NPC enemies in the Hunt mode, and get to grips with the core game mechanics and loop.

Servers will be available 24/7 while Closed Alpha is active, and the recommended matchmaking hours are between 07:00–12:00 CET / 23:00–04:00 PST. The Closed Alpha Test will end at 10:00 CET on November 28.
