Update brings mouse and keyboard support to Xbox One


Today’s November update for the Xbox One has brought mouse and keyboard support to Microsoft’s console, as announced in September

Initially, mouse and keyboard support will only apply to a limited number of games. Microsoft said: “Announced at X018, Fortnite will be one of the first titles to support mouse and keyboard input, matchmaking players using the same input together with one another to ensure a fair and fun experience for everyone. Fortnite’s support for keyboard and mouse launches alongside previously announced Warframe via today’s update, with Bomber Crew, Deep Rock Galactic, Strange Brigade, Vermintide 2, War Thunder and X-Morph Defense adding support in November, and Children of Morta, DayZ, Minion Master, Moonlighter, Vigor, Warface, and Wargroove adding support in the future.”

For those looking to get a mouse and keyboard hooked up to their Xbox Ones, Microsoft is pushing its partnership with Razer: “We’re partnering with Razer to offer gamers a premiere mouse and keyboard experience through an all-new Razer-created ‘Designed for Xbox’ mouse and keyboard. Built from the ground up for gaming on Xbox One and Windows 10, it will come equipped with a dedicated Xbox key, and support for the new Xbox Dynamic Lighting capability – enabling immersive game-controlled lighting effects.”

Other features added in the November Xbox One update include the arrival of an Amazon Music app and improvements to Cortana. For further news, keep an eye on the Xbox website.
