Pointless Skyrim Hearthfire PC release, PS3 also
With Skyrim Hearthfire already on the Xbox and the second DLC looming for the PC, there have been a number of suggestions asking if the new expansion is pointless? We’ve seen a mixed response in regards to Hearthfire, and even though the PC version is yet to be released and doubts if PS3 owners will ever see it, we have to wonder if they are really that bothered?
When we first learned of the Skyrim Hearthfire DLC and how you were able to customize your own home we thought that Bethesda were going to give the console a kind of modding feature, but what we actually got was some half-baked new content that does not reach its true potential, well that’s according to some of those who have downloaded and played with the new content.
Okay so we know the price is the best part of the new DLC and makes a change to be spending time making a decent home for yourself instead of the constant fighting that you need to do in order to progress – especially in Dawnguard. When we say a decent home we’re using that term a little too loosely as there’s not much you can do with the house in terms of making it unique – if this was a multiplayer game then you would come across houses within the game that all look pretty much the same.
The release date for Hearthfire on the PC has yet to be confirmed, but we expect it to be early to mid-October if going by Dawnguard. Once it does become available we wonder how long it will be before modders improve on it with the Creation Kit?
We’ve forgot to pick up on another issue with Skyrim Hearthfire, and that’s the ability to be able to adopt a child. Okay so we know that being able to have your own child in the game is cool – even though you still cannot conceive one – but when was the last time a thief or a killer was accepted to adopt their own child?
It’s not all bad though, you do get a bigger place to store all your inventory, have your own steward and also a carriage outside your home to take you where you need to go quickly.
Are you really that bothered when Hearthfire will be released on the PC and PS3?
