Microsoft announced Xbox One keyboard and mouse support back in September, and it’s now arriving on consoles next week. Starting November 14th, Xbox One will support keyboard and mouse in 14 games.

Fortnite and Warframe are the biggest names to offer the support at launch, alongside a variety of mainly indie titles. While there are 14 confirmed games, only seven of them will be available during the initial launch of the keyboard and mouse feature. The rest are coming soon.


  • Fortnite
  • Bomber Crew
  • Deep Rock Galactic
  • Strange Brigade
  • Vermintide 2
  • War Thunder
  • X-Morph Defense

Coming soon:

  • Children of Morta
  • DayZ
  • Minion Master
  • Moonlighter
  • Vigor
  • Warface
  • Wargroove

It’s up to developers to implement keyboard and mouse support in Xbox One games. Fortnite in particular will match up keyboard and mouse players with other players using those same inputs to keep play balanced.

Alongside the keyboard and mouse support, Microsoft teased its further work with Razer on a keyboard and mouse. Razer is planning to unveil the first wireless mechanical keyboard and mouse set for Xbox at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
