Lenovo has announced a Dark Side Expansion for its Star Wars: Jedi Challenges AR game, a free update that will let players battle Yoda, Rey and others as Kylo Ren. Along with added gameplay features, Lenovo is releasing a limited-edition Lightsaber Controller, just like the one Kylo Ren uses in the films, that glows while users are playing.

The Dark Side Expansion will be available in November and the Limited Edition Kylo Ren Lightsaber will be available this winter for $100.

Update 9/14/18 3:30PM ET: Lenovo has updated its plans for this release. First, the Dark Side Expansion will no longer include Ship Battles -- the local multiplayer experience in which players command Empire and Rebel fleets in a PvP real-time strategy game -- and the release date has been pushed to November rather than October as previously reported. This article was updated to reflect the new information.
