Bethesda Softworks had put up an interesting item for a charity auction — the winner of this special lot will be able to design their own Starfield character along with a new Xbox Series X and a digital collection of Bethesda games.

Starfield is one of the many mysterious projects in the works at Bethesda Softworks. This game development studio is well-known for alternating between making games in the Fallout and The Elder Scrolls franchises and I'm sure that many fans would have been happy with a few decades of that pattern and nothing else.


However, the company recently surprised gamers around the world with the 2018 reveal of Starfield. Not much has been said about the game to date, and one lucky (and probably wealthy) person will get the chance to leave their mark on this mysterious upcoming game.

Starfield Character Design Auction Benefits Make-A-Wish Charity

The Starfield character design auction is a pretty tantalizing prospect for people with money to burn. That alone would have been enough, but Bethesda Softworks has upped the ante with some neat additions to the prize package: the winner of the auction will also get a brand-spankin'-new Xbox Series X and a digital library of games from the developer.


Proceeds from this particular auction will benefit  Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, a division of the Make-A-Wish Foundation that covers Maryland, North Virginia, and Washington, D.C. As those familiar with the U.S. might notice, Bethesda Softworks takes its name from a prominent city in Maryland where it was founded; Bethesda is now headquartered in Rockland.

Best of all, Bethesda has promised the opportunity to create the character within three months of the auction's conclusion. That means that we may actually see some substantial media for the game in the coming months, which would be the first in a long time. We know this will be the next game from Bethesda, but they've kept quiet on what it is by and large.

The bid on this auction item currently stands at $6,200 and that number is sure to go up as we approach the online auction's end date of February 28, 2021, at 5:00 PM. Check out the auction for yourself at the Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic website. Otherwise, you'll be able to play Starfield whenever the heck the developers decide to release it.
