Build your own home and adopt children to live with you.

Bethesda Softworks has announced the second official add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Dubbed ‘Hearthfire’, the download content enables players to purchase land and build their own homes from the ground up – “from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with armory, alchemy laboratory, and more.”

You will choose your land, customize your house, keep unwanted visitors at bay, and adopt children to live with you. It will be available for Xbox 360 on September 4 for 400 Microsoft Points. PlayStation 3 and PC release dates were not announced.

Watch the debut trailer below.

    Much better price than that other “DLC”. I played the other DLC as a friends and it totally wasnt worth that price IMO. This is much better priced

    You heard it here first folk: GOTY edition will be announced in about 3-4 months from now on xD this should be the last big DLC for Skyrim.

  • DarthBrian

    Isn’t that mostly the same as this mod?

    Maybe they should release the first DLC for PS3 first…

      Thanks for pointing that out.

      Fixed. Sorry. =

  • xMCXx

    Wow, this is everything I ever wanted to do in an ES game………not!
    And Dawnguard isn’t even out on PS3!

    • zakou

      Me too, i can finally have a life in a gaming world and raise my children there XD because well all know that this is impossible to do in RL.

      • DrForbidden

        I suppose the difference is that in real life you can’t raise human children as a giant blue lizard or giant calico cat married to a female dark elf.

        Now that it is possible to adopt kids, the ‘Killable Children’ PC mod just got more interesting…

    • Acidicsam

      Yeah, I’m usually okay with timed-exclusive DLC…but what the hell, Bethesda?

  • Talbot

    …yeeeeah, this isn’t going to be running on a PS3 anytime too soon, is it?
