Skyrim Hearthfire now available on Xbox LIVE

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's new add-on, Hearthfire, is now available worldwide on Xbox 360.

Available for 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE, Hearthfire allows you to purchase land and build your own home from the ground up. You can choose your land and customize your house to your own liking — from a simple one-room cottage to a giant castle complete with armory, alchemy lab, and more.

In addition, Hearthfire gives you the ability to adopt children and raise them as one of your very own.

Hearthfire can be downloaded now (or as soon as Xbox LIVE starts working again). No PC or PS3 release date has been announced, but Bethesda has assured fans that the development of Hearthfire is completely unrelated to the delay of the release of Dawnguard on PS3. In fact, Bethesda recently addressed the Dawnguard issue on PS3, finally admitting that it's a problem they aren't confident they can solve.
