What you need to know

  • Minecraft (opens in new tab) may be on its way to another platform: Tesla cars.
  • Tesla founder Elon Musk tweeted that the company is working on bringing the blocky game to its vehicles, and it's a "high priority."
  • Musk also revealed that Cuphead (opens in new tab) will launch in Teslas in August.

Minecraft has already become one of the most ubiquitous games out there, with ports on nearly every platform you can think of. However, you might be able to add another, unconventional platform to that list soon: Tesla vehicles.

Tesla founder Elon Musk recently tweeted that Minecraft is on his company's list of to-dos for game ports. Going further, Musk says it's a high priority, alongside Roblox.

Teslas all feature a large displays from which you control much of the car's functions. Tesla has been gradually adding games to the built-in computers for months now, including Atari titles, Beach Buggy Racing 2, and even chess. Of course, the games are only meant to be played while the car is at rest, so don't get your hopes up for playing Minecraft as you drive. That's just plain dangerous.

In further Tesla game news, Studio MDHR's notoriously difficult Cuphead, which was teased earlier this year, will launch on Tesla vehicles in August, Musk confirmed in another tweet.

For those of us without a Tesla, both Cuphead and Minecraft are available to pick up across Xbox One, Windows 10, and a number of other platforms in the meantime.
