Bethesda recently detailed their next bit of downloadable content for their hit game of 2011, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and it plans to bring an entirely new feature to the franchise. After downloading the content the player will be able to purchase land and build the home they want for themselves.
“With Skyrim’s newest game add-on, Hearthfire, you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up – from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter’s workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.
Hearthfire releases on Xbox LIVE next week (September 4th) for 400 Microsoft Points.”
Here’s a brief video showing off some of the features!
