A number of Tesla fans, including the company’s own CEO Elon Musk are also video game fans, and in a recent snapshot of the mobile/PC game PUBG, players have begun making a location to show their love for the company’s electric vehicles (EVs).

A screenshot from the mobile version of the PUBG apocalypse survival game shows that the game has constructed a Tesla factory and are building a Tesla Model Y within the game, according to a post from PUBG Mobile (via cumiastowski).

The build is taking place in a highly realistic Tesla factory building, in which you can see Tesla logos and factory hardware in the background.

In a post last month, the PUBG Twitter page announced that they would be partnering with Tesla to “bring its revolutionary spirit and products in-game.”

Tesla and Musk have shared their gaming ambitions a number of times, and last year the company began hiring for a video game development team to be based out of its own studio in Austin. While PUBG isn’t currently available as a native game for Tesla’s game platform, it isn’t beyond the realm of possibility for the future of the partnership.
