Will there be a mouse and keyboard option for consoles?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there will be a mouse and keyboard option for consoles? I know mouse and keyboard is an unethical way to play console games, but i feel that doom eternal should have this option seeing as it would be much easier and quicker to switch weapons. Also, correct me if im wrong, but I dont think that there will be any form of online matchmaking like deathmatch, so mouse and keyboard would probably not be too unethical for doom eternal. There is also an official doom eternal mouse and keypad by hori which supports the idea. Anyone know if mouse and keyboard will be an option?

I don't think so but there are third party adapters that sort of allow you to use a mouse and keyboard to play on consoles.

Everytime you use a mouse and keyboard on a Console a puppy or kitten dies.

 

You have something against little animals mate?

probably not , there are adapters to do that ...but at the end of the day who would want to use mouse and keyboard on a console when they can use them natively on a PC ? (i can understand if it's a console exclusive FPS game)

Could have sworn that I heard that console DE is going to have mouse and keyboard support on at least one platform. But maybe I'm misremembering.

I will kill a million imaginary animals if I can have better control over my game.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to play it on Xbox with M&K

 

Reason? Achievements. I like Xbox Achievements. But that means being forced to play with Controller, which I don't like for shooters.

Please give us a M&K option for console.

 

I'm going to buy it on both Xbox and PC, but I'd prefer to play both with the same inputs.

 

Unless of course, the game comes to Gamepass, which would be RAD, then I can play it on PC like I do for Rage 2.

Modern consoles and their games seem to support m/kb more and more. I know in Modern Warfare in lobbies it shows you the player's system and their control method

Firstly, it's single player, who cares? (unless maybe there's a super-hard achievement that's hard on controller? still I don't think it matters)

edit: just noticed you meant for the multiplayer, I doubt they will give it much thought. If m/kb is not supported I don't think it'll be because of the multiplayer

 

I think times are changing and few folks give a crap anymore, especially with games like Fortnite pitting phone players against PC players, and as mentioned the new Modern Warfare allowing crossplay (though with an option to play only against matching system/control scheme)

 

In any case, as others mentioned there are adapters like the XIM. I used a XIM3 several years ago and it was great.

So I've literally created an account for this site to tell you this. Your post came up on Google when I did a search. 

 

I've been trying to find this out for a while. The only evidence I've seen that supports it is this... 

 

https://gear.bethesda.net/products/doom-tac-assault-commander-pro-m2

 

It's an official playstation/bathesda Doom Eternal themed mouse and keyboard, with PS4 buttons. The description says that it works for games that support M&k and will emulate for those that don't. 

 

It would seem reeeeeeally weird to release this product only for it to emulate for Doom Eternal. Especially when what I've heard about mouse emulation isn't great. 

 

So I am hopeful. The new Cod has support, Sims 4, fortnite. So I don't see why they wouldn't at this point. 

 

Fingers crossed. 

 

Edit... Lol WOW I should have read your post better. You've already seen the product. We'll see I guess.

ok so ign released a video on doom eternal's ui and accessibility options and sadly from what i can tell, it doesn't look like there will be m/kb support on consoles. maybe im wrong, maybe it wasn't an option since m/kb want plugged in. at this point we'll just have to wait until the game comes out.

EDIT: then again, the slayer and demon options say "(Controller)", so who knows

I think every shooter on console SHOULD support mouse and keyboard, unless it's multiplayer, because in that case, some may have an unfair advantage. Though, the most recent COD, Modern Warfare, has crossplay, but I suppose you can turn that off, and besides, multiplayer is a clusterfuck in those games anyway.
