Get your keyboard ready, Xbox One support starts tomorrow

Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds is headed to Xbox Game Pass

And today, Corsair capitalized on that expanded support by revealing several keyboards and mice just waiting to be plugged into your Xbox One S or Xbox One X.

Now, PUBG devs have made the official announcement that PUBG is coming to Xbox Game Pass.

Microsoft had previously said it would offer keyboard and mouse support, but it was not clear until now when the feature would arrive. Keyboard and mouse support will be launching with the global smash hit Fornite this coming Wednesday.

A number of other games, including Bomber Crew, Vermintide 2, Thunder, and Deep Rock Galactic, have also promised support for keyboard and mouse control in November.

Microsoft has also teamed with Razer to introduce a Wireless Mechanical Keyboard and Mouse which is compatible with the Xbox One console.

However, South Korean officials have pushed back by saying defensive exercises were exempt from the agreement. A Digital Globe satellite image shows what CSIS reports is an undeclared missile operating base at Sakkanmol.

"When the update launches next week, all developers will have the tools they need to create tailored mouse and keyboard experiences for their games as they see fit to ensure a fair and fun experience for fans", states the update on the Xbox Wire. It's not so good for racers, beat'em ups, or sports titles, where the nuance of analog sticks and triggers can be more impactful.

Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa improvements.

Meanwhile, Xbox players who don't won't the hassle of trying to edit builds quickly and other downsides of using controllers on Fortnite, now have a viable alternative option to switch to keyboard and mouse, without having to purchase a whole PC setup.

PUBG was part of the Xbox Free Play Days program as well and was free to play for all Xbox One users until Sunday, November 11. The Amazon Music app enables Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers to stream more than 50 million songs and thousands of playlists and stations through their Xbox. Prime members can also use the app to stream tunes at no additional cost.
