There's no word on when/if Hearthfire will come to the PS3 and PC.
We’re pleased to announce Hearthfire, the next official game add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As demonstrated in this just-released video, Hearthfire allows you to purchase land and build your own home from the ground up – from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with armory, alchemy laboratory, and more. Choose your land, customize your house, guard it from unwanted visitors, and turn your house into a home by adopting children.
Hearthfire will be available for download for 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE on September 4. For more information on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim or Hearthfire please visit www.elderscrolls.com
