Fallout Shelter joins Tesla Arcade in latest software update

Nearly a year ago, Todd Howard, the director of Bethesda Games, said that Fallout Shelter would be coming to Tesla displays. It arrived this week via the 2020.20 software update, which was first noted at driver's platform Teslascope.

Fallout Shelter is the latest — and one of the more modern games — to join Tesla Arcade, an in-car feature that lets drivers play video games while the vehicle is parked. It joins 2048, Atari’s Super Breakout, Cuphead, Stardew Valley, Missile Command, Asteroids, Lunar Lander and Centipede. The arcade also includes a newly improved (meaning more difficult) backgammon game, as well as chess.

The 2020.20 software update that adds the game, along with a few other improvements, hasn't reached all Tesla vehicles yet. However, YouTube channel host JuliansRandomProject released a video that provides a look at Fallout and how it works in the vehicle.

Fallout Shelter is just one of the newer features in the software update. Some functionality was added to the steering wheel so owners can use the toggle controls to play, pause and skip video playback in Theater Mode.

Tesla also improved Trax, which lets you record songs. Trax now includes a piano roll view that allows you to edit and fine-tune notes in a track.
