Native mouse and keyboard support coming for Xbox One, starting with Fortnite
After releasing the native keyboard and mouse support for the console Xbox One in September 2018, Microsoft has confirmed that it will be reaching in Fortnite next week!
Arguably, one of the main notable drawbacks of the console is the unavailability of input devices like Keyboard and mouse of your choice. Due to the console design, it is difficult to simulate the aiming ability that is only possible using a mouse.
Luckily, once again Microsoft has stepped up to provide what lots of players are looking for the support of native mouse and keyboard. Microsoft has teamed up with Razer to release a Wireless Mouse and Keyboard which is compatible with the Xbox One Console.
Fourteen titles have announced they plan to have Xbox keyboard+mouse support including @FortniteGame, landing later this week.
