Dash Text: With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up – from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter’s workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.

    That is very nice and I want to buy it, but I can’t. Any news on when Xbox Live will be back up again?

        awesome, thanx. can’t wait to play this

      • Lee Mawdsley

        It’s still a bit glitchy.

        It’s still a bit glitchy.

        • GMC73

          what do you expect from Bethesda.

          • Buster Wolf

            Have Bethesda ever not released a glitchy game?

      • fsdfg dsfds

        lay off the tweeter sauce

        • Russell Gorall

          I agree. All businesses try and hammer this Twitter stuff out, can get really weird. You are basically signing up for a store’s emails several times a day.

  • uss_liberty

    No instructions whatsoever about these kind of things.
    Do you go to specific people to buy land, and so on?

    • Nitramuse

      At first you will receive a letter telling you there is property for sale.

      The other 2 properties can be bought in Dawnstar and Morthal at the jarls thane
      But only after you’ve completed the jarls’ quest.

      • uss_liberty

        This is something else. You’re thinking of the usual property buying that’s in the original game.

        • Nitramuse

          Nope… instead of buying a home, you buy properties on which you can build your home…

          • ThinkerT

            “instead of”? You’d better be frikkin’ mistaken. I’ve already bought all the houses, if I can’t buy any land in this DLC because of that I’ll be pretty ticked off.

          • Nitramuse

            Yes. You’ll need to buy them for 5000 gold each.

  • GMC73

    Cannot believe Bethesda would release garbage like this. DLC with more areas and quests would have been nice.

    • Martin Eddy

      Nobody’s forcing you to buy it.
      My wife thinks this addon is the best thing since sliced bread. She’ll spend 100’s of hours on it. That makes it top value in my book.

      • Russell Gorall

        Nobody is forcing you not to buy it.

        • Ryan

          Probably got it for free. Should have been part of the game. I will pass, but maybe buy it for 2.00usd.

      • GMC73

        For a game like Skyim this is just poor DLC IMHO.

  • ungeheier

    Horse Armor.

  • Russell Gorall

    I see the internal Microsoft blog is in full effect.

    Instead of MS paying for stuff like this to be early DLC, or in the case of Skyrim apparently not working cough on PS3 at all, you could be hearing news about actual retail games in development. Yet, there are none.

    Not buying, had it with overpriced early DLC tied to an almost phased out console. I have to go return some videotapes.
