Bethesda has announced the latest add-on for RPG The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim which is set to add the option to purchase land and build your own home from the ground up; the developer stating that homes can be improved upon from ‘a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with armory, alchemy laboratory, and more.’
Dubbed Hearthfire, the add-on also challenges players to guard their homes from unwanted visitors, and even turn their house into a home by adopting children.
Hearthfire will be available for download for 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live on 4 September 2012, no date or confirmation of release has yet to be announced for PS3 and PC versions of the game.
