The object of Xbox Cloud Gaming is to make Xbox video games extra accessible by bringing them to a greater variety of units. Asobo Studio confirmed mouse and keyboard assist is coming to Xbox Cloud Gaming in an interview final week. There is not any agency date on the function, nevertheless it’s definitely coming. The Microsoft Flight Simulator developer held an extended Q&A final week (watch beneath), proper after the flight sim turned out there on Xbox Cloud.
Flight Simulator head Jorg Neumann began speaking concerning the cloud model of the sport together with mouse and keyboard assist round eight and a half minutes in.
Neumann stated it’s a platform-level function, so mouse and keyboard on the cloud will work with extra than simply Flight Simulator. Xbox Cloud Gaming already helps contact controls for some video games as a result of not everybody utilizing a cell system has a controller (Microsoft doesn’t restrict controller assist to Xbox controllers). By the identical token, not everybody streaming video games on PC has a controller.
It’s fascinating to contemplate how this may apply throughout Microsoft’s number of cloud video games.
The video games with PC variations could merely swap to their PC management schemes, or they could not because the cloud servers are operating on customized Xboxes. Players could merely be capable of configure keys to correspond with Xbox controller buttons. Would the cloud add mouse aiming to a primary particular person shooter that has by no means had a PC model?
