The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Hearthfire DLC: All Sorts Of Domestic

No, there's no knowing when and if it'll come to the PlayStation 3, but we'll just optimistically assume it'll arrive at some point.

Bethesda has announced that the next expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will land next week on September 4. It's called Hearthfire, as previously rumored, and it's first coming to the Xbox 360.

This cool DLC will let you design and build your own home within that expansive fantasy world, which ought to be an intriguing process. You will purchase a plot of land and then gather up raw materials to create your little domicile. Some rooms can be highly functional as well, as you can construct a greenhouse and an enchanter's tower or alchemy lab to craft useful items. Heck, you can even toss in a garden, hives, and a fish hatchery if you're so inclined, and if you need some help, hire a steward. And a bard for ambiance!

Lastly, if you'd like to live with your spouse, you can adopt a child, who can be educated in the future. Of course, mommy and son/daughter will have to be protected, so remember that.
