Recently, Microsoft launched support for mouse and keyboard input on Xbox One. Epic Games detailed how Fortnite is one of the first titles to offer mouse and keyboard input alongside previously-announced Warframe. However, Bomber Crew, Deep Rock Galactic, Strange Brigade, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, War Thunder, and X-Morph Defense also received support.

Aside from Warhammer: Vermintide 2, the highlight here has to be the quirky shooter Strange Brigade. Strange Brigade is a curious game which blends Egyptian mythology and third-person shooting together. The game follows the story of the "Witch Queen Seteki." Risen from the dead, Seteki commands an army of mummified monstrosities who want to destroy the world. However, it's up to the Strange Brigade, a band of brave adventurers, to fight back. The story is eerily similar to what happens in all "The Mummy" films. You have to team up with some quirky characters to halt the apocalypse.

Going forward, we expect all the major games to support mouse and keyboard. The more choices gamers have, the more likely it is that they'll choose a particular console. For example, there are many customers out there who prefer the precision a mouse offers. They can't get that with a controller and that's one of the major reasons why they don't pick up an Xbox One X, even though it's much cheaper than building an expensive gaming rig.

Hopefully Microsoft's gamble on widespread mouse nad keyboard support will pay off an attract more gamers to the Xbox platform, especially with next-generation machines expected in 2020. However, only time will tell.
