New Bethesda 'Hearthfire' TM Indicates Another Skyrim DLC

Though it's only been little over a month since Skyrim's first expansion, Dawnguard, was first released on Xbox 360, it looks like Bethesda's got another underway.

Bethesda parent company Zenimax recently filed for a trademark under the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim name called Hearthfire, which references the fictional name for the month of September in the universe's lore.

This filing reinforces a post made by Bethsoft forum user irishandargonian, who claims to have knowledge of Skyrim's DLC from Reddit user derptemp6698. Derptemp6698 was the Reddit user who (accurately) leaked all the Mass Effect 3 DLC. Derptemp6698 gave what seems to be a summary of the expansion, which irishandargonian made public: "Hearthfire™, the next official game-add on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim®, has arrived. For the first time in the Elder Scrolls universe, 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, trophy room, and more! With Hearthfire, the possibilities of what you can build are endless."

While homebuilding might not exactly have been what most Elder Scrolls gamers were looking for in the next Skyrim mod, it's definitely a nice touch. Currently, house customization in the game is a nightmare. And who knows? Maybe setting books on a bookshelf will finally be less of a hair-tearing task.

    Dragon mounting or GTFO.

    Cool but there's a mod for that.

    I'm all for a custom KA house, especially if I get to choose where to put it. :D

  • If they follow the Oblivion model there will be several smaller DLC packs like this and at least one more large one. Morrowind was similar in the way you had to build your estate based on what Great House you joined. I always liked the House Hlaalu estate best.
  • Edit.

    Before they make anymore DLC's, they need to fix the bugs in the one they already have.
  • Well if I posted 2 similar comments it's because they are not showing up.
  • tomfreak
    So they have the resources to release another DLC instead of fix the huge pile of bugs?
