You could soon have access to Steam’s extensive library of video games from inside your Tesla.
Responding to Ride The Lightning podcast host and video game aficionado Ryan McCaffrey, CEO Elon Musk says Tesla engineers are currently working to add the streaming video game service to Tesla vehicles.
We’re working through the general case of making Steam games work on a Tesla vs specific titles. Former is obviously where we should be long-term.

As noted by Musk, making an entire library of video games work in your car is a much better solution that porting individual video games one at a time.
Billed as the “ultimate online gaming platform,” Steam has a library of nearly 30,000 games with over 100,000 million active monthly users.
The types of games available on the service range from AAA titles like Halo and Cyberpunk 2077, to lesser known games from independent developers.
Musk provided no timeline for when Steam might be available on Tesla vehicles, but when it does it will likely be limited to those with the latest AMD Ryzen processors.
The new chip provides impressive performance specs that could easily handle any game, like Cyberpunk 2077, which we have already seen being played on the Model S Plaid during the special delivery event last year.
