A Bethesda blog post announced today that a new add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Hearthfire, will be releasing September 4th on Xbox Live for 400 Microsoft points. The add-on allows players to do something they have not done in the game before- actually make a permanent physical mark on the world. As the name suggests, Hearthfire allows the Dragonborn to purchase land, on which they design and build their own home. According to the trailer, players can build simple rooms such as kitchens and armories to more interesting areas such as a greenhouse and a fish hatchery. You can’t truly live large without a personal entourage- players can hire a bard and a steward, and even adopt children.
Check out the trailer below!
