Vehicles have upgraded to include in-dash displays that play music, show the rearview camera, and other helpful features. Tesla owners had an added bonus. They can enjoy a variety of games within the in-dash display.

Over the past few months, there have been several updated games added to Tesla vehicles. One of those games is a popular farming simulator game, Stardew Valley.

The official Steam page summaries Stardew Valley: “You’ve inherited your grandfather’s old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life. Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home? It won’t be easy. Ever since Joja Corporation came to town, the old ways of life have all but disappeared. The community center, once the town’s most vibrant hub of activity, now lies in shambles. But the valley seems full of opportunity. With a little dedication, you might just be the one to restore Stardew Valley to greatness!”

Stardew Valley has been published on multiple platforms since its release in February 2016. There was recently a massive update earlier in December. The 1.4 update included fixing some gameplay issues, new cosmetic items, events, mine content, and more.

Elon Musk announced the news first on Twitter earlier this month, but the update was not immediate. Along with Stardew Valley is Lost Backgammon, a preview of Full Self-Driving mode, plus “a few other things.”

The update officially rolled out a few days ago, so fans can immediately begin playing Stardew Valley within their Tesla vehicles.

It’s unknown if the game will include the multiplayer elements of Stardew Valley, but luckily there’s plenty of solo content to enjoy.

There are a few well-known games already available on the in-dash display such as Cuphead and Fallout Shelter. Last month, Rocket League players created a petition to have the game added in the newly revealed Cybertruck.

To those unfamiliar with Tesla’s in-dash display, games are only playable when the car is in park. The games help drivers pass the time when they’re recharging their vehicle at supercharger locations. The games are also free to play and aren’t a subscription-based service.

With the game updates over the past few months, Tesla owners are sure to have access to even more games in the future.
