Phantom Dust is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 tomorrow for free.

Phantom Dust mixes action and strategy in a new kind of fighting game. After the apocalypse, a small group of humans survived underground. When they finally emerged, they found a world where everyone and everything is covered in something called Phantom Dust. This dust gives people supernatural powers they use for survival. When the underground dwellers come to the surface, they’re covered in the Phantom Dust and their deadly adventure begins.
