HAWKED takes place on a remote island called X-Isle, where teams of up to three players or solo Renegades compete to collect and extract Artifacts.

These valuable items can only be obtained by overcoming obstacles, fighting formidable monsters, outsmarting opponents, and solving puzzles. The first team to successfully extract the Artifacts emerges as the victor. However, even in defeat, players can still extract smaller treasures and collect useful currency to enhance their characters.
