The colorful alien world of Lightyear Frontier is here for players to enjoy on either PC or Xbox consoles, and as such there are two sets of controls depending on which experience you’re opting for. Below we’ve listed the full set of controls for both platforms.

Note that the ‘Interact’ button is also used for non-default actions like flipping your Mech back upright if you tumble off a cliff or an uneven surface.

Additionally, if you’re on a PC and would like to use an Xbox controller to play the game, you’re absolutely welcome to do so as the game has been optimized for the controller on Steam as well.
