The most recent of these is called Beach Buggy Racing 2, and it was developed by a company called Vector Unit. It’s being added as part of the launch of Tesla’s Arcade and ToyboxWhat’s cool about Beach Buggy Racing 2 is that if you’re charging your Tesla, you can play the game using the built-in controls for your car. The steering wheel steers in-game, and the brake and accelerator pedals do their jobs as well. That isn’t to say that there’s not a potential downside to this.

In case this isn’t obvious, that’s a really good way to unevenly wear your front tires out and put extra stress on your steering components.We reached out to Tesla for comment on its plans to address any added wear, to which Tesla representatives replied: “The game has been tuned to give you full control of your dune buggy with minimal steering wheel movement. You can also use touchscreen controls which does not move the wheels, and USB controller support is coming soon.”As for the game itself, it looks like a super fun (if slightly derivative of Mario Kart) racing game with decent graphics that probably look awesome on a Model 3’s huge landscape-oriented screen. The game has several difficulty modes ranging from Chill to Ludicrous (we see what you did there, Tesla) and features 22 levels.The game update is rolling out to Tesla customers starting on Tuesday.
