The release date for Phantom Dust has finally been revealed, and its TODAY! And its also going to be free! No, you don’t need to check your calendar, its not April 1st!
For those you are not familiar with Phantom Dust, it is a game that was originally released on the original Xbox back in 2005. A remake was announced at E3 2015, but has since ceased development. This version is a remake of the original. It is described as an action/strategy game with elements of collectible card games. Taking place in a post-apocalyptic Earth, the unnamed player-character must interact with the few human outposts that remain, all who have suffered a form of amnesia, to understand what has happened to the planet. Throughout the game, the player takes missions to collect artifacts to help piece the past together, and where they compete in battles with other non-player characters.
The player collects numerous skills by completing missions, which are used to assemble customized “arsenals” that they take into battle arenas against enemies. The game also included a multiplayer mode, allowing players to compete against each other using their arsenals.
