Star Wars: Jedi Challenges now has multiplayer mode allowing Star Wars fans to have light-saber battles against each other in local multiplayer mode, the newest feature expansion for the smartphone-powered augmented reality (AR) experience from Lenovo and Disney. The feature update, titled Light-saber versus mode, is the second free update since the product launched in November 2017. Light-saber versus mode is available now in the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges app, which is free to download on the App Store and Google Play.
A first-of-its-kind, Star Wars: Jedi Challenges has allowed fans to train like a Jedi, battling against legendary dark side villains like Kylo Ren and Darth Vader in AR since its launch in late 2017. Driven by overwhelming fan demand, the new multiplayer mode allows two players – each equipped with the smartphone-powered Lenovo Mirage AR headset, Light-saber Controller, Tracking Beacon and a compatible smartphone – to face off in AR light-saber battles, while in the same room. This is the first time two players can play simultaneously while being able to see the other player’s light-saber in AR.
Multiplayer mode is the second expansion to the original experience and offers endless hours of dynamic 1-on-1 game-play. Star Wars: Jedi Challenges also features an earlier content expansion, inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi, including a new ligh-tsaber duel against two Praetorian Guards in light-saber battles, three additional levels of strategic combat set on the mineral planet Crait, Porgs and more.
Star Wars: Jedi Challenges is available on jedichallenges.com and select local retailers. Local pricing and availability will vary by country. The Star Wars: Jedi Challenges app is free to download on the App Store and Google Play.
