Bethesda Auctions Chance to Design Starfield Character for Charity

Bethesda fans are eagerly awaiting any morsel of information about Starfield, the studio’s upcoming sci-fi open world game, but a new charity auction may actually let you influence it directly. Bethesda has paired up with Make-a-Wish for the Evening of Wishes 2021 event, a gathering of different auctions that go to support the organization’s efforts. Bethesda’s prize? The chance to help design a character that will appear in Starfield.

Judging from the official auction description, it seems this can be either designing an original character or simply designing a lookalike of yourself. The winner will also get to work alongside Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard in some capacity.

Bethesda revealed Starfield all the way back in 2018, and has provided scarcely any update since then. Earlier in 2020, we learned that Starfield was receiving a “major engine rewrite” for next-gen consoles, with Todd Howard saying it’s the biggest update ever made to Bethesda’s Creation Engine, which powers Skyrim, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76.
