Bethesda may gravitate more towards combat and exploration driven DLCs for their games, but this time around they're introducing a more Sims-esque experience in their latest Skyrim DLC, aptly named Hearthfire.  It may seem odd in comparison to DLCs like, say, the horror-themed Dawnguard, but Hearthfire is sure to offer more casual players something new and different to the mix.  

 

So how does Hearthfire work exactly? Well, it allows you to purchase land and build your own home from the ground up and customize it to your heart's content.  Eager to show off your armory, alchemy or rare item collection?  Or are you more for the simple things in life and looking to build both a home and family?  Hearthfire will offer you limitless possibilities, provoding a home for your most prized possessions and adopted children (that's right, you can literally take children home with you with no criminal background checks).  

 

Of course, after building your home you're going to want to guard it from unwanted monsters and enemies as well.  After hearing about this new DLC I was a little curious to know what would happen if, say, you went on a long journey in-game.  Would your home be riddled with monsters or is their a way out of this whether by building a wall or gate? I guess that's up to your imagination.  

 

Hearthfire is now available worldwide for a meager 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE. It's still uncertain when this DLC will hit PSN and PC.  

 

Check out the official Hearthfire trailer and let us know what you think!
