Tesla launches Steam on Model S and Model X for unlimited access to games for gamers as part of the Holiday Update. Cars of an earlier year of production after the equipment retrofit will also be able to enjoy the games.
As promised by Elon Musk earlier, Tesla is bringing the Steam gaming platform to its electric vehicles, making thousands of games available. It was deployed as part of the Holiday Update, which began distribution on December 13. Now Tesla owners can play their favorite games available on their accounts right in their cars.
You can play Cyberpunk, Elden Ring and 1000s of other games in your *car* with an epic sound system!! https://t.co/F25Qu6HJ63— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 14, 2022
As you can see from the attached Tesla video, Cyberpunk 2077 runs smoothly. Now gamers are not limited to their consoles and can play anywhere. Whether you are traveling, charging, or just not at home, this is no longer a problem—now nothing can stop you from enjoying your favorite games. Taking into account the preferences of all gamers, Tesla provides the opportunity to play in cars using a keyboard and a mouse. This is exactly what may help bridge the eternal chasm between console and PC.
It is worth noting that Steam does not work on all Tesla vehicles. The platform and the games distributed on it are highly demanding and therefore only run in the latest versions of the Model S and Model X. Tesla has installed AMD's RDNA 2 GPUs in them. These chips are also used in the PlayStation 5. Model 3 and Model Y do not have access to Steam as they do not have appropriate equipment. However, according to Musk, in the future, old Model S and Model X will also have access to Steam, after retrofitting old equipment.
