Tesla is reportedly planning to add Steam to its lineup of in-car games. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, responded to a tweet by saying that the business is “making progress with Steam integration” and that we can anticipate a demo “probably next month.”
Cuphead and Sonic the Hedgehog 1 are just a couple of the titles that Tesla now provides through the integrated Tesla Arcade, but integrating Steam’s online shop might open up a ton more options for players. We still don’t know whether the connection would go so far as to let customers buy things on Steam while driving, or whether there will be some games that Teslas won’t be able to play.
The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 are still not available for the more recent Model S and X vehicles, which are equipped with an AMD Ryzen CPU and a discrete AMD RDNA 2 GPU. Musk still hasn’t delivered on his pledges to do so. However, a prospective Steam integration may be a sign that Tesla is getting closer to its objective.
The business is “working through the general case of having Steam games operate on a Tesla vs. individual titles,” Musk tweeted in February. This suggests that Musk wants to integrate Steam with high-end games rather than release them separately.
Tesla faced criticism last year for its policy changes, first allowing drivers to play games only when the car was in park and subsequently permitting this while the car was moving by avoiding a safety check. After receiving feedback from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Tesla reversed course and once more banned gaming while operating a vehicle.
