Take flying and dogfighting in Star Citizen to the next level with the precision and speed of the Tobii eye-tracking hardware, and enjoy a more intuitive flight experience as you soar through space.
Cloud Imperium Games is happy to announce that we’ve partnered with Tobii, a global leader in eye-tracking technology, to bring the next generation of head-tracking support to Star Citizen.
We’ve introduced official support for the Tobii Eye Tracker 5, delivering a more immersive way to explore and experience the ‘verse.
The Tobii head-tracking experience was integrated into Star Citizen.
Using a Tobii Eye Tracker 5, you can fly through the ‘verse with even greater immersion thanks to Extended View functionality. This grants you a larger field of view, increasing your overall awareness while exploring the universe and improving how you navigate.
With Tobii’s Gaze Based Target Selection, introduced to Star Citizen with Alpha 3.15, players can now use the Tobii Eye Tracker to select a target with their eyes. All you need to do is to look at your target and press the target selection button to lock it!
From unpacking the Eye Tracker to lifting off, you only need to follow three easy steps:
Plug in your Tracker:
Setting up the Tobii Eye Tracker 5 with your PC is a very straightforward process. Simply plug your Eye Tracker into an available USB port. It should automatically download the correct drivers along with the Tobii Experience app.
The next step is to calibrate your tracker for your eyes and room’s lighting. This is done in the Tobii Experience app.
Once installed, jump into Star Citizen and navigate to the Options menu. We’ve added a couple of new bullet points to the Comms, FOIP & Head Tracking tab, as you can see in the image on the right. Here you can enable Extended View and adjust Tobii Head Tracking to your piloting needs.
That’s it! You’re ready for take off!
