Tesla’s stash of dashboard video games just got more expansive.
On Thursday, while CEO Elon Musk was facing a federal contempt charge, the electric car maker began rolling out two new video games through over-the-air updates.
Model X, S, and 3 owners can update their car software to find the nostalgic Atari games 2048 and Super Breakout added to the infotainment system.
2048 is a single-player sliding block puzzle game and Super Breakout requires you to bounce a ball at against a falling brick wall.
The two titles join a growing suite of Atari games that includes Missile Command, Lunar Lander and Centipede, each of which were previously playable.
In case you didn’t know, Atari is a decades-old company that’s perhaps best known for its 2600 video game console. The company owns or manages more than 200 games and franchises, according to its website.
The first batch of Atari games was bundled into the V9.0 infotainment update released in August 2018.
Tesla later got rid of the Pole Position racing game because it “couldn’t resolve all the rights issues,” Musk tweeted in March.
