If the home is where the heart is, then Skyrim now owns your heart and your soul. Hearthfire, available today on Live Marketplace for 360 (400 MS Points), allows players to buy a plot of land and construct their own home. Homes can be customized and expanded to include several room types, including an armory, garden, kitchen, and stable.
For the adventuring crafter, the new drafting table and carpenter’s workbench allows for the transformation of raw materials into new structures and furniture. And if all of this new space has you feeling a little lonely, not to mention that empty dining table, you can always start a family by adopting some children.
No new information was made available on Hearthfire’s PC or PS3 release.
