Bethesda Brings us Home with Hearthfire
As we thought, the DLC will consist of buying a plot of land and building your own home, according to Bethesda this luxury will cost 400 MS points when it comes to Xbox on the 4th September. No PC date announced yet though. Here's the news straight from Bethesda:
"With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, 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 armoury, 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."
Judging from the trailer, this DLC looks to be a fun addition. It's not a massive content they were talking about adding, but I imagine that will come later. Mods already do this kind of thing, so us PC players can use them while we wait.
