According to sources, Microsoft and Razer laid their plans at the Xfest event this year. Razer will allow game developers to use its API to deal with Chroma lighting effects on some Xbox games. Chroma showed off how it works on games like DOTA2 and Overwatch. If this is the case, Xbox One users can see this change at this year’s update for the console. The presentation also stated guidance for app developers on how keyboard and mouse support for the Xbox will work. Unlike gamepads, the Xbox can only support one keyboard and one mouse in one gaming console. This update can give gamers an immersive experience of their game. Microsoft also provided pointers on how mouse and keyboard support can impact competitive multiplayer games. It is important for developers to keep in mind the presence of the mouse and the keyboard to help players make specific playlists based on what input device they are using.
