The November update for Xbox One is starting to roll out and it'll be an item of particular interest for those more into traditional PC-style gaming. In addition to various Xbox Skill updates, the November update is set to include mouse and keyboard support.

Mouse and keyboard support was first revealed by Phil Spencer back in September. As noted there, the feature will be made available to developers to place in any of their games. Warframe already confirmed that it would add keyboard and mouse support out of the gate, with Epic Games announcing at X018 that Fortnite would also implement keyboard and mouse immediately. Matchmaking will take keyboard and mouse users into account and match them up with other keyboard and mouse users across various platforms, in order to ensure an even playing field.

Here's the full list of games, as revealed during X018:

  • Bomber Crew
  • Deep Rock Galactic
  • Strange Brigade
  • Vermintide 2
  • War Thunder
  • X-Morph Defense
  • Children of Morta
  • DayZ
  • Minion Master
  • Moonlighter
  • Vigor
  • Warface
  • Wargroove

Other features included in the November update include Cortana and Alexa improvements, search expansion, and the addition of the Amazon Music app. For more on everything included in today's update, be sure to check out Major Nelson's website.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
