Disney, Lucasfilm, and Lenovo have announced new content for Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, featuring a new planet and characters from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The expansion is the first since the launch of Jedi Challenges and the Lenovo Mirage AR headset, and will be available to download for free as an update to the Jedi Challenges mobile app.

It includes unique content from The Last Jedi film, such as a lightsaber duel with two Elite Praetorian Guards, the first time players will be able to take on two combatants at once.

It also comes with three new levels of combat set on the salt-dusted planet of Crait, where you’ll be able to direct your armies against new enemies like the First Order AT-M6 walker. In addition, Assault mode will now feature foes like the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner and Riot Control Stormtrooper, on top of new levels to explore.

And then there’s what may be the best part of the expansion (or most reviled, depending on your feelings about branded merchandise). Porgs are being introduced as a reward for players, and you’ll be able to have your own strange, bird-like critter.

The Last Jedi content pack will be available in January 2018. In the meantime, the Lenovo Mirage AR headset is available with the base Star Wars: Jedi Challenges content for S$379 at major retailers like Challenger, Courts, and Harvey Norman.
