Home is where the Hearthfire is in Skyrim this September

Bethesda will be bringing elements of domestic bliss to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with “Hearthfire,” a newly announced add-on for the already massive RPG. The DLC will be available to download first on Xbox Live on September 4 for 400 Microsoft Points ($5). PC and PS3 versions will presumably come later.

Rather than a full-fledged expansion, “Hearthfire” adds a little bit of Minecraft and The Sims to the world of Skyrim. Players will be able to purchase a plot of land and build the house of their dreams (or the shack of their dreams, if that’s what they prefer). Fans of Curb Appeal and Trading Spaces can further decorate their new abode with furniture and knick-knacks built using the new crafting table feature.

And once they have a threshold to walk over, players can even move in their spouse and adopt (and raise) children. Let’s just hope they don’t get eaten by a giant…
