    keyboard and mouse support for Xbox One

    with keyboard + mouse support slowly integrating itself onto the Xbox One, and since there’s already keyboard and mouse support on the PS4, it would be nice to see Epic put keyboard and mouse support on the XB1 version.

    also, theres the fact that the keyboard and mouse support can give advantages to other players. thats true, but for me it would feel amazing to walk around and aim at other players with better percision and whatnot. but i’m guessing they’ll add this once the Xbox joins the cross-compatibility support between PC and PS4.

    (i made a poll for you guys to vote on this topic :p)

    EDIT: apparently you can use the keyboard on the xbox but it only does certain actions like jumping, moving, and selecting items from your hotbar, but mouse controls and sprinting doesnt work.

      yes, all you have to do is plug in the mouse and keyboard via usb into the front of the ps4 and then you can change the keybindings for PS4. This is good, however you CAN'T change the DPI for your mouse and the in game sensitivity only goes down so far, so you run into the problem of having a really really fast sensitivity. also, there is no cursor. When you plug in the mouse, there is literally no cursor, so you gotta have your controller near by to do the little things like start a game, or change the position of your guns/meds/shields. It is kind of annoying but you get used to it eventually. oh and keep in mind, PS4 has aim assist for PS4 controllers. If you plug in a mouse and keyboard, you don't get aim assist. I find it easier to use a controller on console but thats just me

      I'm right there with you. Aiming with a Mouse on PS4 is incredibly jagged, using a Controller is much nicer.

          It's Microsofts call, not EPIC GAMES, it's a software issue to use peripherals.

          Minecraft has keyboard and mouse on Xbox, so microsoft should allow it if Epic Games makes a push for it im sure there wouldn't be a problem. p.s that play anywhere list has gotta include free games like fortnite so we can play with our console buddies.
