Bethesda Contest Offers Custom Fallout 76 Xbox One X
With the holiday season in full swing, Bethesda has been celebrating with daily giveaways through its “12 Days of Bethesda” sweepstakes event. Today, the company is back with yet another chance for fans to win big, and this time around the prize is a custom Xbox One X modeled after Fallout 76‘s Tricentennial Edition.
Sharing an image of the Fallout 76 console and controller through its official Twitter account, Bethesda outlined exactly how players can enter the sweepstakes:
On the second-to-last day of #12DaysofBethesda, take a break from the holidays and celebrate the tricentennial instead.

The drawing for the Xbox One X will take place at approximately 12:59 pm EST on December 24, and the criteria mentioned in the Tweet must, of course, be met by that time. Furthermore, the official sweepstakes rules indicate that “all participants must be 18 years of age or older at the time of entry, must possess a valid form of identification and be a legal resident of one of the 50 United States (or the District of Columbia).”
As noted by the Tweet, the Fallout 76 Xbox One X marks the second-to-last giveaway through the “12 Days of Bethesda” event. Fans will have one final chance to win when the last giveaway begins on December 24, and the drawing of that winner will take place at approximately 12:59 pm EST on December 25.
Aside from this Xbox One X, Bethesda’s holiday sweepstakes has featured another custom console in a Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus-themed Nintendo Switch. That said, consoles have not been the only items available in the “12 Days of Bethesda,” as the company has given away peripherals, games, books, and collectible cards as well.
A standout from the previous giveaways is certainly some wild custom PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers featuring a Rage 2 design. Today also brought a ridiculous Christmas-themed trailer for the upcoming shooter, so fans of the franchise have a couple of new pieces of content to enjoy while they excitedly wait for the game’s release.
Between the troubled launch of Fallout 76 and a myriad of controversies that have developed around the new multiplayer RPG, Bethesda has found itself under frequent fire throughout the end of this year. These giveaways, coupled with recent announcement that all Fallout 76 players will be receiving free games, suggest that the company is at least trying to do some damage control with the community. However, it remains to be seen if these attempts will do any good with those that feel particularly burned by Bethesda’s recent behavior.
