GameGlass and Cloud Imperium have teamed up to create official touchscreen controls for Star Citizen

A NEW WAY TO PLAY

Shards are a new way to play Star Citizen using immersive touchscreen controls on your phone or tablet.

They look and feel like part of the game, with clear labels and intuitive layouts that let you focus on the gameplay - not the keybinds.

MORE IMMERSIVE

Every control and interaction has been designed to make you feel like you're touching a control panel from your ship.

GameGlass Shards make Star Citizen tangible in a unique and immersive way.

NATURALLY INTUITIVE

See every control laid out before you, clearly labelled and beautifully designed so you can make use of more ship functions and game systems.

No more forgetting keybinds or fumbling for obscure commands.

DISCOVER THE NEW SHARDS

Each Shard is designed for specific activities - including flight, combat, mining and more. As Star Citizen continues to evolve, GameGlass and Cloud Imperium will work together to create new Shards.

Pilot is your handy companion for everyday activities in Star Citizen, and will be free for every player with a GameGlass account.

With detailed controls for flight behaviour, velocity, and power systems, the Avionics Shard makes it easy to make the most of your ships performance in the air and in space.

Tap or drag to assign shields and capacitors, quickly switch operator modes, acquire the right with precise control. Our new Combat Shard is designed to make battle more intuitive and rewarding.

Whether on a rocky moon, or floating among asteroids, the Mining Shard makes it easy to operate your laser and mining gear while giving you easy access to related ship and vehicle systems.

Star Citizen is not just about the ships, your performance on foot is key to your ability to survive. Zero-G, weapon and inventory commands are all within easy reach with the EVA Shard.

GAMEGLASS WORKS WITH YOUR OTHER PC GAMES TOO

SIMPLE TO USE

Grab Shards from the GameGlass Marketplace then configure them to match your keybindings using the GameGlass desktop app. Your Shard collection is automatically synced to your phone or tablet, ready to go.

Shards connect automatically to your PC using your own WiFi, providing a secure and low-latency channel to send your commands to Star Citizen.

MAKE THEM YOURS

Everyone plays differently, so we made it easy to customise your Shards.

Change the keybinds for any button, or add new actions like sound effects and macros.

COMING SOON - Move, add or remove components.

Got questions?

I'm a lifetime Indiegogo backer, do I get these Shards?

Absolutely, all the Shards we ever release will be free for lifetime backers.

Are they included with Glass Pass?

Yep, every Star Citizen Shard is included with Glass Pass.

What will happen to the old Star Citizen Shards?

These are now called Legacy Shards.

If you purchased a Legacy Shard (either individually or in a bundle) you will automatically get an upgrade to the matching new version.

Where are the Discover and Ship DB Shards?

When we began working with Cloud Imperium on the official Shards we quickly realised it gave us an opportunity to design better functionality for these Shards.

Getting the core Shards completed was our priority, but both Discover and Ship DB are very much on their way. We know you've been very patient as you waited for these to be released, so we'll be in contact with those who bought them about some options while you wait.

What happened to the old free Shards (Flight, Combat), etc?

As a way of saying thank you to the community that made GameGlass possible we made many of our first set of Shards free to everyone - whether you had a Glass Pass or just a normal account. These free Shards included:

Flight

Combat

Vehicles

Social

 

These Shards were never sold as part of the Star Citizen or Essentials bundles, and unfortunately they are not compatible with the Forge technology that makes our new Shards so much more powerful and customizable. So we made the tough decision to retire them and focus on the new Shards.

They MAY make a re-appearance as Forge-enabled versions in the future.
