Phantom Dust is an original 2004 action-strategy video game produced and published by Microsoft Game Studios mainly for Xbox console. It was initially released in Japan followed in North America in March 2005. Good news for all gamers, the game will launch today for free on both Xbox One and Windows 10.
Aaron Greenberg, Head of Xbox games marketing, announced on Twitter that the all time favorite game would be available at no cost today. It will exclusively launch as an Xbox Play Anywhere title on any Microsoft's platforms. According to IGN, this re-release news was first broke during last the E3 conference last year.
The announcement last year boasted that Phantom Dust would use the original assets but soon support the current ecosystem of Xbox Live game console. Additionally, earlier this month it was already confirmed that there will be some changes coming to this version of the game. These adjustments include updates to the single-player campaign and visual upgrades.
As reported by Twinfinite, the update will allow players to skip a certain mission after failing to try the game for three times. Phantom Dust will also support and encourage free, as well as paid, DLC in the form of boosters. The purpose of this offered boosters is for Microsoft Studios to “really wanted to allow people to jump into multiplayer and play immediately,” says Adam Isgreen, team's creative director.
This re-release Phantom Dust will feasibly drag over that excited reboot games, which is still on hold because of the closure of its development team Darkside Game Studio. However, Greenberg clarified in his tweets that Phantom Dust will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title. Meaning, it saves data and can be synced across Xbox One and Windows 10 PC versions. In addition, the game also supports cross-play so that gamers on both versions can play using the multiplayer feature.
