Microsoft and Xbox One has announced that keyboard and mouse support will be arriving for the console in the near future. Microsoft have been working closely with studios of all sizes to ensure mouse and keyboard experiences on console are fun, fair and correctly balanced. More games will also integrate this new feature but no list of which ones do so just yet have been revealed.
As for peripherals that are compatible, most wired or wireless USB keyboards and mice will work on Xbox One. However, Microsoft has partnered with Razer to bring players the best mouse and keyboard peripherals moving forward.
With this new input support at the platform level, developers can now build mouse and keyboard support in their games if and how they choose. It’s important to note that mouse and keyboard support for games is added on a title-by-title basis, entirely at developers’ discretion. For all other titles, nothing changes. Mouse and keyboard input is not enabled by default for games. Each development team knows their titles best and we support them in creating the right experience for their games as they see fit, to ensure an optimal and fair gaming experience. Warframe will be one of the first titles testing mouse and keyboard input when the feature arrives to Insider in the coming weeks.
