New Xbox One Update Adds Keyboard And Mouse Support
Following an initial reveal of the feature, Microsoft formally unveiled keyboard and mouse support for Xbox One at the recent X018 fan event. Revealed were a number of epic titles set to be compatible after the feature eventually goes live. That time has now arrived as part of the newest update for Xbox One, also rolling out a series of other updates for the month of November.
The new PC configuration for Xbox One users is now live for both Fortnite and Warframe, with a number of additional games to be supported at a later date. The upcoming games confirmed for keyboard/mouse support include the cosmic viking team-up Deep Rock Galactic, the action-packed Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and the retro-influenced RPG Moonlighter. The full list can be seen listed below.
- Bomber Crew
- Deep Rock Galactic
- Strange Brigade
- War Thunder
- Warhammer: Vermintide 2
- X-Morph Defense
- Children of Morta
- Minion Master
Other features part of the update include the Amazon Music dropping for the console, general improvements made to search functionality in Xbox services such as Xbox Game Pass. Also arriving are various updates to Xbox Skill for Cortana and delivering the Alexa variant for users in the U.K. after it’s debut stateside last month.
The move to add keyboard and mouse support is only a seeming first step for Xbox One, as the console is also set to have official PC-influenced peripherals become part of the brand in the near future. Revealed during X018, an official partnership with hardware-maker Razer was confirmed, with more details about the prospects set to be available at the upcoming CES 2019 event taking place from January 8th to the 11th.
