Select Xbox Insiders can now try mouse and keyboard support in Warframe video game

Mouse and keyboard support will be one main the features in the next Xbox One system update, and starting today Xbox Insiders in the Preview Alpha and Skip Ahead rings can try it in the Warframe video game. Brad Rossetti, Head of the Xbox Preview Program announced the news in a series of tweets yesterday.

For those unfamiliar, Warframe is a free-to-play third-person shooter that was released on the Xbox One back in 2014. For now, this is the only game that officially supports mouse and keyboard on the Xbox One, though Minecraft also allows Xbox One gamers to select mouse and keyboard as the primary input since the “Better Together” update.

The Xbox team previously explained that it will be doing all the platform work on the Xbox One OS, but it will be up to developers to implement mouse & keyboard support in their games. It remains to be seen if Xbox One gamers will soon be able to play popular shooters or RTS games with mouse and keyboard, but the Xbox team made it clear that developers will decide if gamers using keyboard and mouse will be able to play against players using an Xbox controller.
