The new update is out today for PC and PS4.

PC control scheme

In this patch, we’ve added a new tethered ship control scheme for PC mouse & keyboard players. This option can be toggled, and changes ship controls to be cursor based, meaning you’ll be able to direct your ship easily using your mouse. In addition, PC mouse and keyboard players can now look around the ship’s cockpit by holding the ALT key. This new option will be active by default, and can be toggled back to the original control scheme via the General Options menu.
