Best PlayStation 4 games with mouse and keyboard support Android Central 2020
Most people are pretty well aware of the fact that PC gamers are at an advantage when it comes to detailed control. Using a mouse and keyboard certainly has its benefits. However, not everyone is aware of the fact that the PlayStation 4 actually does support keyboard and Mouse input. Here are some of the games that support keyboard and mouse that you might want to try.
- ★ Featured favorite: Final Fantasy XIV
- Air Combat Simulation: War Thunder
- Fantasy MMO: Elder Scrolls Online
- Fantasy MMO: Neverwinter
- Superhero MMO: DC Universe Online
Like so many MMOs, there is a lot going on when you play Final Fantasy XIV. With so much happening on screen, playing an MMO with a console controller can sometimes be a bit of a pain. Fortunately, Final Fantasy XIV has native keyboard and mouse support and that might make your life a little easier.
If you are hot for military combat simulators, you're probably already familiar with War Thunder. However, you may not be aware that you can use a mouse and keyboard when playing it. Just think about being able to map your zoom command to your mouse wheel. Life is already a little easier!
What do you know! It's another MMO that supports keyboard. Unfortunately, you cannot really use it in the game, but you can use it to send a message to your guildmates. This makes connecting to your fellow players a lot easier when you can't use a mic.
Neverwinter is a fantasy-based multiplayer online game that's entirely free to play. Explore the world of Ravenloft and work with fellow players to take out Count Strahd Von Zarovich and the castle he resides in. You can use your keyboard in game to send messages to your guildmates for communication to be easier!
Build your character from the ground up by choosing iconic super powers based on the DC Universe. This is a free-to-play action-based multiplayer online game, meaning you'll be completing jobs with other villains and heroes alike! Your keyboard is compatible for typing messages to your fellow players if you don't have a mic available.
Keyboard and mouse support is still pretty limited on PS4. However, it does help with the games that offer it. Final Fantasy XIV is our top pick for now because of the extensive class system, the amount of players still enjoying the game, and the fact you can use the mouse and keyboard for actual game controls and not just for communication in chats.
