Update: Eagle-eyed user AxGryndr caught this response by the official Elder Scrolls twitter account confirming that, yes, the "Hearthfire" DLC will have achievements. There are still no details on how many or how much GamerScore they will add, but you'll get a notification from the site once those achievements go live if you have the game tracked!

Original Story
Don't you just love building houses? Everyone loves building houses. Heck, that's why so many people enjoyed The Sims so much back in 'the day'. Fast forward to now and, along with all the other stuff you can do, home-building is a big draw in the incredibly popular XBLA title,

Maybe, when you think of TrueAchievements' Game of the Year for 2011,, you don't really think of home-building and with good reason - it's not a part of the game... yet. Leave it to the good folks at Bethesda to give you an opportunity to create the home of your dreams, or just a serviceable shelter from the cold, in their upcoming DLC expansion, titled "Hearthfire".

In "Hearthfire" you'll be able to build anything from "a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more." The DLC also includes new tools, such as a drafting table and carpenter's workbench, as well as the ability to "transform your house into a home by adopting children."

"Hearthfire" will be released on Tuesday, September 4th, and will cost 400 MSP. There is no word yet as to the inclusion of achievements.

Thanks to all the members of the community who sent this one in!
