Skryim: Hearthfire Announced

Building better worlds, all of them, better worlds. That is with this new DLC for Elder Scrolls V: Skryim you can build your own home in an impressive manner that doesn't involve downloading a pre-made and non-customizable home online for free. You have to useresources to build your home and you can build a custom home, not just some cookie cutter cut out. There are areas all over where you will be able to build your home and eventually you may be able to build multiple homes across Skyrim. You can add additional buildings onto your property as well, like stables, docks, greenhouse, an alchemy tower and more. You will be able to take any follower and make them a steward of your property, plus you have intruders to deal with, like giants or bandits. You will also be able to hire a carriage driver, a bard and buy yourself some children! Well, that is you can adopt children now and move them to your home. If you have yourself a wife, or husband, you can also move her to a new home as well. Thankfully the children don't look bland and lifeless and you will be able to interact with them in unique ways. Take a look at the new trailer for Hearthfire.

This is once again an Xbox 360 timed exclusive, how annoying, and there isn't even a pretend release date for PS3 or PC. Speaking of PS3, Dawnguard still isn't out on that so who knows if they will ever receive Hearthfire. I'm happy to say that Hearthfire is pretty cheap, 400 Microsoft Points, which is about five dollars. It could still be overpriced and it all depends on how much you can actually do with the modification, especially when there are so many custom houses you can download for free on PC. Head on over to Bethesda's Hearthfire page to read more about it and thanks for reading.
