‘Star Wars: Jedi Challenges’ for Lenovo Mirage AR Gets First Content Expansion Since Launch

Latest news

    If you haven’t touched your Lenovo Mirage AR headset since Christmas, now may be the time to jump back in for the latest content expansion to the lightsaber-intensive Star Wars: Jedi Challenges.

    The content expansion, which is now available for free, is the first major update to the app since it was released back in November alongside the smartphone-driven AR headset.

    New content includes:

    • New Lightsaber Duel Players can duel two elite Praetorian Guards featured in The Last Jedi. This is the first time Jedi Challenges players will duel two characters at the same time.
    • New Planet for Strategic CombatThree thrilling new levels of Strategic Combat set on Crait, a brand new planet that debuts in the film, will come with the update. Battle new enemies and vehicles including the formidable First Order AT-M6 walker.
    • New Content in Assault modeAll-new enemies and levels will be introduced, including the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner and Riot Control Stormtrooper.
    • Introduction of Porgs Players will be rewarded with fan-favorite porgs in augmented reality.

    The Mirage AR ships with a lightsaber controller, which is localized with the help of the headset’s on-board cameras and a separate tracking beacon. Besides the obvious implication of lightsaber duels, Jedi Challenges offers a smattering of minigames, including HoloChess and an RTS game called Strategic Combat.

    As far as we know, this is the only app currently available on the Mirage AR (not to be confused with Lenovo’s ‘Mirage Solo’ standalone VR headset), still making it an expensive gimmick at $200. Although if you’re a Star Wars superfan, that “collectible quality” lightsaber might be just enough to entice the credit card out of your wallet.
