Tesla’s holiday software is out now, and Elon Musk has a rather interesting bit of news for the owners. In a recent tweet, Musk announced the arrival of Polytopia, a turn-based strategy game to Tesla. The tweet itself wasn’t too elaborate but was a typical Elon Musk announcement, just enough to get the ball rolling.

“The company is launching on Tesla Arcade 3 these new games: Cat Quest, the classic Solitaire, and one of Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s favorite games –The Battle of Polytopia — which is a multiplayer game with the ability to play online.”

Additionally, a multiplayer feature for Polytopia is coming soon to Tesla.

Elon Musk is a huge fan of video games

Clearly, Musk is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that Tesla users stay entertained. This announcement also highlights Elon’s obsession with video games. Additionally, over the past few months, Musk’s tweets have made it clear that he is an avid gamer himself. For example, he once mentioned his love for ‘Call of Booty’ instead of ‘Call of Duty’. It wasn’t clear what he meant here, but the gaming community accepted him with open arms.

In a more recent tweet, Musk showed everyone his Cyberpunk 2077 fanboy side. When reports of the game’s below-par performance on PS4 started pouring in, Musk expressed his concern. (In his own way, of course)

It was clear that Musk was disappointed, but it also felt like he couldn’t get his hands on a PS5 or an Xbox Series X. Nevertheless, it was a moment to cherish, and fans loved every bit of it. Apart from that, he also took a jibe earlier at GTA V’s re-release on the PS5 and trolled Rockstar.
