Steam integration is coming to Tesla vehicles, and owners should be able to get their first peek at how that’ll work fairly soon.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter last week to confirm that Tesla has been “making progress” with Steam integration. He also tweeted that a demo would “probably” show up sometime next month.
Musk’s tweet was in response to a tweet from Tesla Owners Silicon Valley, an account that “follows the most Notorious Tesla Owners Club in the world located in the Silicon Valley.” The founder had pointed out that Tesla vehicles also double as gaming consoles and can be described as a “phone on wheels.”

Tesla Arcade is the name of Tesla’s video game platform. Some of the EV maker’s vehicles boast a very impressive amount of processing power, as pointed out in PC Gamer’s coverage.
Up until now Tesla has been building out its own service, Tesla Arcade, which supports a limited selection of titles in its Model S and X cars. The specs are a little fuzzy but Tesla itself brags about “up to 10 teraflops of processing power” that’s on a par with the “newest consoles,” so presumably Elden Ring won’t be a problem.
The Tesla Model S and X start at around $96K and $112K, respectively. Both vehicles offer a range of over 300 miles. The Model X is the “quickest accelerating SUV in production today,” according to Tesla.
