    Awesome, the more people get to play it, the better. :)

    Hopefully more PC-only games will come to Xbox.

    I would imagine that’s the reason keyboard + mouse is coming to Xbox One.

    Probably with keyboard and mouse support. Alpha Build already supports Warfarme.

    AOE + Halo Wars 1/2 getting KB and M support for Xbox.

    Gears Tactics

    CiV 6

    Announcement that KB+M only games are allowed on Xbox followed by a few PC titles shadow dropping

    So is this made possible because of M&KB support? It'll be interesting what else makes it's way over from PC.

    so, likely an "available now" kind of thing after they present Age of Empires IV...? debut gameplay from AoE IV is all I want from this, to be honest.

    I hope for Xbox-owners sake they don't port that awful Extended Edition over. Skybox botched it horribly and just left it to rot.

    I think based on this we can also expect Gears Tactics, Age of Empire II/III/IV and Minecraft Dungeons.

    Would we assume that these would only work with keyboard and mouse? Reckon they’re gonna have to be pretty careful about communicating that on the store page.

    Microsoft leading the way in kb+m support is predictable but I hope it picks up.

    I love this! I wonder if they will add controller support to these games for those that prefer to use a controller? To me it would be something that would be good because I know there are those that prefer to use controller only, but personally I would be fine with just kb/m support.

    Yes. And I don't see that being an issue - no different to PSVR/Move/Kinect etc being required for certain titles. Will just need to have it listed right up top as a requirement.

    I remember the good old days with my Dreamcast keyboard.
    I think they're partnering with Razer for a comfy couch keyboard and mouse combo or something.

    I wonder - How is Steam Controller for RTS - wasn't it basically designed to take advantage of games which couldn't support traditional controllers?

    • User warned: Port-begging.
    This will surely include controller support, very excited to see if this also makes its way to Switch. Would be a dream come through, to play AoE II on a real comfy couch.

    They won't have controller support. They are not going to redesign the entire game. Especially for a small title like Rise of Nations.

    No controller support when it's a game built around KB/M.

    Isn't that what they said about Civilization VI and Cities: Skylines though?

    I mean sure, traditionally it's been like that, but if they want to have mainstream success being tethered to a keyboard and mouse while on console isn't going to do much good. Let's hope they make smart UI decisions.

    Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I don't think there are a lot of games on Xbox that can only be played with K+M? I've been out of the Xbox loop for a while now, so maybe people are in fact getting used to it, it just sounds strange to me.

    They're adding KB/M support to be able to add games that are designed around that control option without telling the dev to try and fork in some half baked controller support. Civ VI and City Skylines play exponentially better on PC because of a much better control scheme.

    These aren't meant to necessarily be mainstream but allow Microsoft more leeway in adding games to Game Pass for PC while also making them accessible to Xbox players.

    I believe this also has to do with Project Centennial which is taking a Win32 app and converting it into a UWP. From there, they can tweak it to make it run best as it can on Xbox One or even allow for players to make their own decisions on performance on the game.
