Last year together with Disney, Lenovo launched an augmented reality (AR) gaming experience called Star Wars: Jedi Challenges. Basically this involved the use of Lenovo’s Mirage AR headset where when paired with a lightsaber controller, allowed gamers to do battle in the Star Wars universe.

For those who do own the Mirage headset and would love to see more new content, you’ll be pleased to learn that Lenovo has announced a new content pack based around “The Last Jedi” movie which was released last year. According to Lenovo, “the content expansion features new experiences including the chance to duel two Praetorian Guards at the same time; three new Strategic Combat levels; and the introduction of Porgs for the first time in augmented reality as in-game rewards.”

The new content is free for gamers as long as they have the necessary hardware. The app itself is also free and can be downloaded via the iTunes App Store or Google Play, depending on your hardware of choice. That being said based on what we’re seeing so far, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Jedi Challenges app were to be updated in the future whenever new Star Wars movies are released, with the latest Star Wars title coming later this year in the form of a standalone Han Solo movie.
