We do not know much about Starfield, Bethesda’s in-the-works sci-fi RPG. It’s been in development for years but a release date is not in sight: Each Of Bethesda has said now is that it involves distance travel and will launch sometime before The Elder Scrolls 6, that is also very dim and distant on the horizon.
Despite the puzzle about it, Bethesda Softworks is offering you one enthusiast an opportunity to design a character for the game. The job is part of a prize package Bethesda has set up for the Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic Evening of Wishes auction that also includes a brand-new Xbox Collection X console and 16 games from Bethesda series including Doom, Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Wolfenstein, Dishonored, and The Evil Within.
“Everyone loves creating their own version of the hero of their matches, but very few players make to really grow to be a character within a game itself,” the trophy list states. “The winner of this package will utilize the award-winning group at Bethesda Game Studios, including executive producer Todd Howard, to create a character to get their highly anticipated forthcoming game, Starfield!”
It is not clear precisely how that is likely to work, although I guess it’s more of a Profession gig instead of granular, low-level design. More fascinating than the inner workings of the task, however, is the risk that the winner will be subjected to actual details about Starfield–it might be useful to know a little bit about the sport if you’re going to help construct a character for this, after all.
Or maybe we all are: If you assume that any details are certain to leak as soon as they’re shared (and let us honest, it’s a fair assumption), why don’t you put out it there before the winner has to work?
The decoration listing says Bethesda will schedule time to produce the character in just three months of the auction, which will happen on February 28. That usually means you’ve got the greater part of a week to make your bid, but you ought to dig deep if you want a shooter: The current bid is $4,200 and it goes up in $200 increments.
