We knew that Microsoft wanted to release the remastered version of Phantom Dust before E3, and now it's happening. What we didn't know, however, is that the Xbox One and PC game will be free. 

The news comes from Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg, who tweeted the announcement earlier today.

Phantom Dust is a unique action/strategy hybrid, and the new version has improved visuals and Xbox Live support, all of which players can experience tomorrow at no cost.

 

Our Take:
I love surprise announcements at E3, but the big bombshells tend to drown out the smaller news. Not only is it nice that Microsoft is offering this game for free, but the timing is good, since it gives Phantom Dust some time in the spotlight before next month's craziness.
