Syrim Hearthfire DLC announced
I’m a big fan of the Elder Scrolls, but let’s be honest. The Dawnguard expansion for Skyrim was, by most accounts, mediocre at best. Even after getting so involved with Skyrim that I blogged about my experience within the game, I remember watching the Dawnguard trailer and thinking, “that looks awful and the vampire lord looks ridiculous”. Then the PS3 release date was never announced, and I didn’t feel cheated. I was just glad to be saving $20 because, as bad as the Dawnguard DLC looks to me, I wouldn’t have been able to stop myself.
Hearthfire, on the other hand, sounds much more interesting. This DLC will allow players to buy property and build a home. It will also allow players to build families by adopting children. This all sounds very “Sims”, but creating your own home, having a family and owning property sound like nice expansions to the almost year-old RPG. It has been announced that Hearthfire will be available on Xbox 360 on September 4th. PC and PS3 launch dates are still TBA. In fact, the Dawnguard DLC launch date is still TBA on PS3.
