Fortnite Battle Royale players who use a keyboard and mouse on the PlayStation 4 will be paired against those using the same control scheme, whether on PC or console, Epic Games announced in a state-of-development post yesterday.

Input-based matchmaking isn’t a part of Fortnite yet but, when it is, it will extend to the entire party. That means if anyone in the group is using a keyboard and mouse on a console, the whole party will be matchmade against keyboard-and-mouse players on PC or PS4.

The Xbox One currently has no official support for keyboard-and-mouse controls (though Microsoft is said to be working on delivering it for the console’s regular fall update). Keyboard-and-mouse users are considered to be at an advantage over gamepad players, particularly for the accuracy speed and improvement gained by aiming with a mouse.

Epic’s development update didn’t say anything about PC players using a gamepad being matchmade to gamepad users on that or other platforms, however. Epic did say that custom controls are expected by the end of the year, and users will be able to completely remap a gamepad to their preference.

In other news, a competition system is expected for Fortnite sometime this fall. Epic said that development on a competitive system began recently, and what it has in mind would let players to compete directly in the same match “and be recognized for their accomplishments.” No other details were given.

Lastly, Epic mentioned that Fortnite players on PS4 Pro systems will soon see support for 4K resolution.

Fortnite Battle Royale yesterday saw a giant, weird cube arrive in the game via lightning storm. Players are still figuring out what it does and why it’s here. (Maybe Peter Molyneux is inside?)
