Adding a layer of deeper OCD-fused gameplay, Bethesda Game Studios has revealed the next DLC for The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Hearthfire, which allows players to purchase a lot of land and then build a house.

It gets much deeper though, as you can construct major components of your new crib from raw materials yourself and add as much or as little as you want. A fish hatchery, a garden, a trophy room - you name it, you can build it. You can also hire a steward and even adopt a child for you and your in-game partner. You'll need to keep your house and family safe from attacks though, especially where pesky skeevers are concerned.

The new content will be landing on Xbox Live from September 4 for 400 MS Points (around AU$6), with no word yet on PC or PS3 release dates (think about the timing between releases for Dawnguard though, and you're likely in the right ballpark).

Watch the debut trailer for Hearthfire embedded below, or click here for a direct link.

Interesting, I think that Bethesda are gaining a lot of ideas from DLC and building on it. I'm pretty sure there's a mod or two which offer house building.

Let's hope land prices are better than in, say, Melbourne.

Also, yay - gonna build me a sweatshop.

Let's hope the pricing is better than the Dawnguard DLC. $25? You gotta be dreaming. I'd pay like $5-10 max for this.

I want House Armour DLC, Those giants could do some damage.

It's a good price. I am yet to find out if Dawnguard is worth $25. I have downloaded it but haven't played it yet.

Absolute Skyrim fanboy here though. I have bought Horse Armour twice.

Nice. A Worthy addition to Skyrim and something different.
