CAPE TOWN – Microsoft has partnered with gaming hardware Razer to enable keyboard and mouse support on the Xbox One.
Jason Ronald, Director of Program Management for Xbox Platform said: " 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."
According to Microsoft, they have been working closely with big and small studios on this new keyboard and mouse support, and it’s now looking for feedback from Xbox testers to perfect this before it’s available later this year.
Microsoft is planning to share more about its Razer partnership during the company’s Inside Xbox stream on November 10th.
Select Xbox testers will be able to trial this new support in the coming weeks. If you’d like to test out this experience on Xbox, you can join the Xbox Insider program.
