The official site informs us that the Dark Side Expansion, a free update for the mobile app, is now available for Star Wars: Jedi Challenges. This update allows players to become (virtually, of course) the conflicted Kylo Ren from the First Order and wield his deadly crossguard lightsaber. We first learned about the planned release of this new content expansion by Lenovo at the end of August. Check out the intro to the article copied below and then take the supplied source link for the full read.

The Dark Side Expansion arrives today for the Lenovo and Disney augmented-reality experience, Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, and it’s the stuff of dreams for fans of black-clad, red-lightsaber toting bad guys. A free update to the mobile app, the Dark Side Expansion places players inside the virtual boots of Kylo Ren, where they’ll wield the game’s beautiful and undeniably-cool lightsaber controller and duel Star Wars legends like Yoda and Rey.

For the makers of Jedi Challenges, turning their game to the dark side was something of a no-brainer.

“We said, ‘Why don’t we focus on what the public likes, which is lightsaber combat,” Christopher Hunt, art director on Jedi Challenges, tells StarWars.com. “We started to formulate a plan on the update being centered on lightsaber combat, with adding new characters and a little bit of a twist on how you wield a lightsaber and who you are while you’re playing.”

It’s a twist that works very well, and in myriad ways.
