Battlefield V Devs Considering Cross-Play, Mouse And Keyboard Console Support

Battlefield V

One of the major talking points to rise in the gaming community as of late is cross-play. Fortnite kicked in the door earlier this year, allowing  players across all platforms to play with one another. That said, it’s time for other titles to start considering the feature, and it looks like Battlefield V might be going that route.

DICE recently took to Reddit to outline many details regarding their latest Battlefield experience. One such topic was that of cross-play as well as mouse and keyboard support for console. When asked if the additional peripheral support would be making its way to Xbox One, the devs said, “DICE is excited about cross-play, mouse and keyboard support. We’re always researching new ways we can make our games better in the future. So, more news later when we’re ready to share.”

With mouse and keyboard support officially going live on Xbox One, it would make perfect sense for developers to start considering the integration of the functionality in their video games. Especially when it comes to online shooters such as Battlefield V, as some believe the use of mouse and keyboard gives those using them an unfair advantage against controller users. Needless to say, if DICE were to bring cross-play into the mix, the support of mouse and keyboard would surely tag along.

Battlefield V officially arrives on November 20th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:

    If I could use keyboard and mouse to play battlefield games on console, I would downgrade my expensive gaming pc and buy one. reasons are
    1.Cheaper
    2.easier being a dedicated gaming device.
    3.Hacking would be almost impossible 4. unfair advantages with weird hardware setups removed creating a more level playing field.
