Microsoft is enabling keyboard and mouse support for Xbox One, adding a new way for gamers to play and more tools for developers.

Keyboard and mouse support will roll out to select Xbox Insiders in the next few weeks. Most games will see little change, as the support is added on a title-by-title basis and it is up to the developers to do so.

In addition to the new capabilities, Microsoft is teaming up with gaming hardware manufacturer Razer to create the “best possible mouse and keyboard experience for this new functionality.” Microsoft didn’t give further details, but the company pushed eager fans to its’ and Razer’s social media pages for a sneak peak.

Warframe will be one of the first titles testing mouse and keyboard input, and in November Microsoft will share more details about which games will get those capabilities next.
