List Of Xbox One Keyboard And Mouse Games

For gamers, the battle between PC and console has always been a contentious one. With platform-exclusive game titles meaning many of us invest in multiple systems, it’s becoming more and more common to see console games, including those for Xbox consoles, playable with a keyboard and mouse instead of a controller.

We all know that cross-platform multiplayer games often see keyboard and mouse players flying past those on controllers. That’s where Xbox keyboard and mouse games come in – you can have the power of a console with the accuracy of your favorite peripherals.

Setting up your keyboard and mouse on your Xbox

If you need help setting up your keyboard and mouse for Xbox One, be sure to check out our video guides below for both Xbox Series X and Xbox One. Or, if you’d prefer, read our written guide.

List of Xbox keyboard and mouse games

Unfortunately, not every Xbox game can be played with a keyboard and mouse, but there is still a pretty nice collection you can take advantage of. What’s more, many of these games are available for free download on both PC and Xbox consoles with a Game Pass subscription. We’ve limited this list to those games that offer full KBM support, while there are a few more that can be played with just keyboard or mouse, such as Octopath Traveler and Untitled Goose Game. It’s also worth noting that you might need a controller to get past initial setup.
