Skyrim Hearthfire expansion officially announced

 

Bethesda officially took the wraps of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's next expansion today, and it will be called Hearthfire. It will allow players to design and build their own homes in the Skyrim world, adding whatever rooms you desire should have the available tools, materials and coin. The trailer lists a few examples, such as the ability to build kitchens, greenhouses, alchemy labs and more.

You can also choose, along with your in-game spouse, to adopt a child and turn your house into a home (as Bethesda puts it) - but you may have to protect it from whatever people and creatures decide to attack it.

Hearthfire will be coming to the Xbox 360 first on September 4 for 400 Microsoft Points ($5), and like with Dawnguard initially there has been no word on when it will be making the jump to PC. We expect could take at least a month to make it to PC, so be patient PC gamers!

Am I the only one that couldn't care less about building a "home" in this game? WTF, can I wear a virtual dress too. Now if I could destroy someone ELSES home, I might want to go out and crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and hear the lamentation of their women. Just sayin.

Still waiting on Dawnguard for the PS3......

Not likely to happen. Bethesda can't seem to get around whatever issues they're having with it. Even the main game doesn't run properly from my understanding.

Basically something to spend gold on. The game lacks a good money sink, so this is a good addon.

I was really hoping for a DLC of even more content. Dawnguard was great. Lets get more of stuff like that.

It looks like an expansion tailored for consoles, since pratically everything in the trailer can be made through mods for free.
