The wait is over.
Star Wars: Jedi Challenges – Dark Side Expansion is available now as a free content update to the augmented reality (AR) experience. What’s more Lenovo have added a new local multiplayer game to the content update: Ship Battles.
Since its global launch last winter, Jedi Challenges has enthralled fans with the first-of-its-kind Star Wars AR gameplay, becoming one of the most popular and sought-after Star Wars tech devices of the season. Energised by fans’ excitement and requests, Lenovo worked with Disney on new gameplay experiences. In the Dark Side Expansion, the third free content expansion from Jedi Challenges, players can battle against formidable light side opponents such as Rey and Yoda in AR Lightsaber duels.
And with the newest Ship Battles mode, we’re giving players the experience to command capital ships in space battles against opponents in real-time, local multiplayer matches. Ship Battles lets players take command of an Imperial Star Destroyer or Rebel Mon Calamari Cruiser, managing offensive and defensive maneuvers in space combat. Each ship contains four sections which players must manage and continually recalibrate, including turbolaser fire, defensive shields, deployment of ‘Power Up’ ships, and bomber runs.
To play the Dark Side Expansion update, the full Star Wars: Jedi Challenges starter kit is required (sold separately), which includes the Lenovo Mirage AR headset, Lightsaber controller, and Tracking Beacon. A compatible smartphone and the latest Jedi Challenges app, free to download on the App Store and Google Play, are also required.
