"Fortnite Battle Royale" has achieved a lot of big things in around 14 months it has been out for. Epic Games have been releasing weekly updates for over a year, and the popular video game has managed to bring PlayStation 4 and Xbox One together. While this was considered impossible for many different reasons, the popularity of "Fortnite" is the reason why we now have the cross-play functionality between these two rival consoles.

While PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are almost identical when it comes to hardware specifications, there are a few differences that make them unique.

One of those differences was a native support for keyboard and mouse on PlayStation 4, but that is no longer a case. Microsoft has enabled this input support for Xbox One in September this year, and "Fortnite Battle Royale" will be one of the supported games.

Keyboard and mouse in Fortnite Battle Royale

Xbox's Larry Hryb has announced that 14 video games would add a keyboard and mouse support on Xbox One. One of those games will be the most popular video game at the moment, and the keyboard and mouse support for it will most likely be added next week!

Epic Games are going to release another "Fortnite Battle Royale" patch, and we can expect it to come out between Tuesday and Thursday.

This is when the video game will most likely receive the input support for Xbox One, allowing players to play without a controller.

Considering that PlayStation 4 has had a native support for keyboard and mouse since it came out, many PS4 players have played "Fortnite Battle Royale" using a different device. It used to give them a huge advantage as they were being matched up against controller players, but that is no longer the case.

Epic Games have recently released the input matchmaking system, and keyboard and mouse users are now matched up against other kb/m users, regardless of the platform they play on.

Input matchmaking on Xbox One

We can expect the input matchmaking to be enabled on Xbox One as well. This means that "Fortnite Battle Royale" players who use a controller on Xbox One will be matched up against other controller users.

However, connecting keyboard and mouse will put players into harder lobbies, making things fair for everyone.

While "Fortnite" has done some huge things for the gaming world, we are hoping that other game developers are going to enable some key functionalities this game has, especially cross-play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
