With the Xbox One now serving full mouse and keyboard support, a growing pool of games deliver an alternative to the controller. While limited to just a dozen in early days, a strong lineup is slated for future compatibility, with Microsoft and Razer delivering a bespoke mouse and keyboard combo too. And with adoption on the rise, Electronic Arts is the latest to add full integration for The Sims 4.

Like all compatible Xbox titles, using a mouse and keyboard is a plug-and-play experience over USB and wireless adapters. Your existing PC peripherals are all likely functional on the console (aside from Bluetooth) adding enhanced precision for aiming and inputs. With The Sims' roots well-established in PC, the feature is an ideal pairing for the title.

Mouse and keyboard support drops as a part of the larger v1.14 patch, also packing overdue Lunar New Year content and various tweaks and fixes. The update is now available for download to all existing owners, mandatory before starting the game.

The Sims 4 joins the early list of Xbox mouse and keyboard games, including Fortnite, Metro Exodus, Minecraft, and more on the system. Eager users should also consider the new Razer Turret for Xbox One, delivering an officially-licensed solution built around the console.

With wireless functionality, a magnetic mouse pad, beautiful lighting effects, and Razer's seal of quality, the Razer Turret is looking to be one of 2019's most exciting Xbox accessories.
