Razer and Xbox are partnering up for a specialized keyboard and mouse.

Xbox

Microsoft revealed the timing for mouse and keyboard support for the Xbox One Saturday, announcing that it would launch Wednesday, Nov. 14, among its many other reveals during its X018 event.

Warframe was the first title announced to support it, but the biggest game in the world right now is also getting support in the near future. Xbox One owners will soon be able to play Fortnite with a mouse and keyboard, bringing them up to speed with PlayStation 4 and PC players.

We also got some more details on Microsoft's official Designed for Xbox devices, which include a Xbox keyboard and dynamic lighting. Razer will be the exclusive partner, with more details coming during CES 2019. That mouse and mechanical keyboard combo will also be wireless.

Microsoft first announced mouse and keyboard support would be coming to the console during an Insider livestream earlier this year. As mentioned during that event, said support is entirely reliant on developers choosing to allow it. Any USB mouse and keyboard will be compatible, but not every game will support alternative controls.

Here's the full list of other confirmed games that will support mouse and keyboard.

November:

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

Later:

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