Fortnite, Warframe, and More Get Mouse and Keyboard Support on Xbox One Next Week

Players will be matched with only fellow mouse and keyboard players.

Mouse and keyboard support was first announced back in September for Xbox One. Today during Microsoft's big Inside Xbox: XO18 Special at its fanfest in Mexico City, a release date was unveiled, with a tease of what will be available for its launch. The first big addition for its lineup will be none other than Fortnite, which will be getting mouse and keyboard support starting next week on Wednesday, November 14.

Warframe was the first game to be announced with support for the feature, back in September. Don't worry though: players who use mouse and keyboard will only be matched with other players also using mouse and keyboard. Fortnite and Warframe won't be the only games getting mouse and keyboard support, as "others" like X-Morph Defense, Deep Rock Galactic, Strange Brigade, War Thunder, Bomber Crew, and Warhammer: Vermintide 2 were also revealed. In the future, games such as Children of Morta, DayZ, Minion Master, Moonlighter, Vigor, Warface, and Wargroove will be getting PC-like controls too.

As revealed in September, Razer will be Microsoft's primary partner in mouse and keyboards specifically for the Xbox One platform.
