What PS5 Games Support Keyboard & Mouse? The Definitive List

A comprehensive guide to all the PS5 games that support keyboard and mouse.

Table of Contents

It seems strange to ask what PS5 games support keyboard and mouse: the PS5 controller is a great peripheral, with responsive inputs and haptic feedback for punchy gameplay. But for many games, a console controller simply doesn’t have enough control options. Using a keyboard and mouse provides greater accuracy, speed, and precision during gameplay, so a keyboard and mouse coupled with the latest-generation technology of the PS5 makes for a fearsome combination. Having the versatility of keyboard-and-mouse gameplay with the graphics of the PS5 can make for a deadly combination.

No matter which model of Sony’s flagship console that you’re playing on, be it the PS5 or the PS5 Slim, there are some great console games with keyboard and mouse support. We continuously update this list with all the latest PS5 titles that support PC peripherals, so this is the definitive guide to all PS5 mouse and keyboard games.

As you can see from the lists above, there are plenty of games that will benefit highly from using a keyboard and mouse with the PS5. For competitive games, especially online first-person shooters where every moment counts, it is vital to have a stable internet connection. And to get the most out of the computational power of the PS5, we also recommend a 4K TV. With these, and an appropriate keyboard and mouse, you can utterly transform your PS5 gaming experience.

Why use a keyboard and mouse with a PS5?

The initial appeal of the Playstation 5, and consoles as a whole industry, is that they are dedicated gaming machines, with ergonomic controllers designed for the best possible experience. But whilst the PS5 controller does pack some truly innovative design functions, it is inherently limited by the design: there are a certain amount of buttons, and even with the optimum sensitivity settings the joysticks can be tricky to aim.

A keyboard and mouse on PS5 solves these issues: a mouse is comparatively much easier to aim, and you have dozens of button inputs to choose from. This is particularly helpful for first-person shooters, MMORPGs, and immersive sim games: the more control you have over your player character, the better.

The Best Keyboard and Mouse for PS5

For a stylish RGB keyboard and mouse pair that are fully compatible with the PS5, Corsair have the perfect option. The K55 is a hardy yet handy gaming keyboard, with plenty of key customization and great performance. The Harpoon Pro is no joke either, being hyper-responsive and great for gaming. The only downside is that they are both wired devices, which can take up valuable slots you may need for an SSD storage drive. However, if you can spare the space, these are two fantastic plug-and-play peripherals for the PS5.

Should you get a wired or wireless keyboard and mouse for PS5?

There are valid arguments on both sides as to whether wired or wireless is better for your PS5 mouse and keyboard. A wired connection is generally more secure, but limits the positioning and takes up the limited USB or USB-C slots on your Playstation. A Bluetooth connection is wireless, naturally, but is less reliable and limits your game time to your keyboard and mouse’s battery life. If “one more game” turns into a whole night, we recommend a wired combo – but for comfortable gaming, a wireless keyboard and mouse is better.

How do you connect a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to a PS5?

You can easily connect a Bluetooth mouse with your PS5 by following these simple steps: Settings > Device then select the device that you would like to pair. This is the same for any Bluetooth device, including PS5 headsets.

Can you play Helldivers 2 with keyboard and mouse on PS5?

No: Though Helldivers 2 is available on both PS5 and PC, the game does not come with keyboard and mouse support for consoles.

How do I connect my PS5 controller to PC?

With the power off and the USB lead disconnected, press and hold the PS button for a few seconds – until the player light begins to blink on and off. Navigate to the Bluetooth menu of your PC, and select the DualSense controller. Once you’ve paired, you’re good to go!
(Note: For PC gaming, it is best to start playing from a fullscreen application such as Steam’s Big Picture Mode)

In Summary

That concludes our list of PS5 games compatible with keyboard and mouse! Whether you’re looking for a more intuitive way to sift through abilities in your favorite RPG, or wanting to improve your performance in a competitive FPS, we hope you found that your game was compatible!
