Star Wars: Jedi Challenges AR lightsaber battles now let you duel a friend

Last year, Lenovo and Disney teamed up to launch the augmented reality game Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, which allows players to practice their lightsaber skills, command troops in land wars and play the iconic game of Holochess

Now, a free update allows players to face each other in the new 1 vs 1 mode of Lightsaber versus

given the high price of the full configuration, which requires players to spend $ 199 for the Lenovo Mirage AR Headphones, a lightsaber hilt and a tracking beacon, players will be happy to see the title continue to receive this type of free and continuous support.

This marks the second free expansion brought to the game after the previous expansion of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

This update introduces the local multiplayer mode, so two players with the complete kit can be installed in the same room and see who is the most masterful Jedi.

The game will tell each player what actions to take, such as telling a player to bend while the other player is told to swing. It may not be the freeform duel that everyone has dreamed of since they first saw a Star Wars movie, but it will certainly challenge the players' Jedi reflexes.

This is also a convincing step forward for AR games, as multiple users will be able to share an AR experience. Players can see their own lightsabers as well as those of their opponents.

We tried it on our own, and quickly got caught up in the action; it's a thrilling and impressive AR experience that, best of all, lets you know what it's like to use a lightsaber.

Players can get the update now from the Google Play store or from the iTunes App Store.
