Elon Musk’s Tesla has made a splash in the automotive industry ever since the company was founded in 2003. Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy, and they have made some incredible progress over the last few years. Since then, Tesla has been pushing the boundaries, and their recent holiday software update is no exception.
Tesla has unveiled a beta version of a new feature that allows recent Model S and Model X vehicles from the last two years to play Steam games. Steam is the world’s foremost PC gaming storefront, and it’s now available in Car form. The library of supported games is in the thousands, and Tesla has released a trailer showcasing games like Cyberpunk 2077.
The feature works with both front and back touchscreens in the vehicles, and allows for wireless controller connections. Unfortunately, Tesla disabled the ability to play video games while a Tesla is actually being driven due to a threat of investigation from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Tesla has also added Apple Music to the holiday update, which can be used while driving. While it is cool that Tesla can play high-end PC games, it is still the most expensive gaming console of all time since it can’t even be used as a Car while playing. Everyone views value differently, but the new feature is sure to set a new benchmark for what a Car can do.
Tesla has made a huge impact on the automotive industry and continues to push the boundaries of what is possible. By allowing recent Model S and Model X vehicles to play Steam games, Tesla is making it clear that they are not just an Electric Car company, but a technology company. This new feature is sure to be a hit with gamers, and will only add to Tesla’s already impressive portfolio of products.
