Lenovo’s awesome Mirage AR headset and light saber for Jedi Challenges has been with us for just over a year, but at IFA 2018 Lenovo has announced it’s getting a new ‘Dark Side’ update offering those wanting to follow the Sith path an option.

The Dark Side update is both software and hardware based with the Jedi Challenges app getting a free content update to allow fans to play through new challenges as Kylo Ren, including offering the opportunity to duel Yoda or Rey as Kylo Ren, as well as a new saber peripheral. The Jedi Challenges app update will be made available through Google Play (and the iOS app store) in November, making for a worthy update to a great game.

The app update to include new content for the Jedi Challenges augmented reality headset is due to customer demand says Johnson Jia, Senior Vice President and Acting General Manager of Lenovo Intelligent Devices Group’s Consumer PCs and Smart Devices, who also said ‘we’re excited to continue collaborating with Disney to expand the Lenovo Mirage augmented reality platform and deliver two new one-of-a-kind gameplay experiences for fans’.

The Kylo Ren Lightsaber Controller will also be made available in November to ‘select markets’ The Saber will be priced at $99.00USD but Lenovo Australia hasn’t announced Australian availability at this stage.
