Keyboard and mouse support is unfortunately bad on the PlayStation 4, developers are deciding whether to add this feature or not to their games. Some games correspond to both devices but are limited to the fingers:

- War Thunder
- Elder Scrolls Online (Keyboard only)
- Neverwinter (keyboard only)
- DC Universe Online (keyboard only)
- They Are Billions
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
As I mentioned above, there are not many options unless you purchase HORI Tactical Assault Commander Pro or Adaptor. We don't know if the PlayStation 5 will support the keyboard and mouse more widely when it comes out next year, but from now on we've seen that its support has increased more and more and Sony may take that into account.
