Stoke the Hearthfire in Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
Many people dream of building their own house / mansion / private fortress / castle complete with servants (delete as applicable) but lack the sufficient funds to be able to do so (we'll skip the legalities here). Bethesda has listened to the yearning of their players and has enabled people to build their own digital abode in The "Hearthfire" DLC even awards players five achievements worth a total of 50G depending on the grandeur of their plans.

With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up - from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter’s workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.
If you'd like a sneak peek at the DLC before deciding on a purchase, check out the trailer here.

"The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Hearthfire" costs 400 MSP and can be downloaded from here. Although the default language for the DLC is English, check your regional marketplace for the option to purchase a localised version.
