Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds is headed to Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft kicked off its X018 event by announcing PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds would be coming to the Xbox Game Pass service Monday, adding the popular battle royale shooter to its slate of more than 100 titles available. The reveal ended with a very enthusiastic crowd watching the "Xbox Game Pass" logo slide across the screen.

Fortunately, after what feels like a lifetime of begging - Microsoft has once again stepped up to the plate to deliver what many players are asking for; native keyboard and mouse support! Fortnite's matchmaking process will set you up with other keyboard and mouse gamers on the Xbox One, so you don't obliterate normal gamers who are using controllers. Support for additional games like Bomber Crew, Deep Rock Galactic, Strange Brigade, Vermintide 2, War Thunder and Warface will out in the future.

Razer is going to be the exclusive partner to ship a Designed for Xbox mouse and keyboard and will formally introduce the product at CES in January.

Considering that it was only late September/early October when support for keyboard and mouse was first announced, Microsoft has done a fairly impressive job in turning this around and getting it out into the public domain with haste.




Launched in the US last month, the Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa allows gamers to get more done using just their voice.

Cortana improvements: In the U.S, the Xbox Skill for Cortana becomes easier to use.

Using your Cortana or Alexa, you can now control your console with new commands.

For a while there it was looking like it would never happen, but Crackdown 3 has not been cancelled or delayed again and is instead coming out on February 15 for Xbox One and PC. The Amazon Music app for Xbox enables Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers to stream more than 50 million songs and thousands of playlists and stations through their Xbox One family of devices.
