Skyrim Hearthfire could be up next for Elder Scrolls V DLC

by William Schwartz on August 21, 2012

Skyrim’s next round of DLC could be Hearthfire, according to a recent trademark filing by Bethesda. The trademark was discovered much earlier this year and some drew the link between the name and a skill book found in Skyrim by the same name.

The skill book found in Tamriel boosts a player’s conjuration skills and magic abilities. With Dawnguard focusing on the Vampiric elements of Skyrim, could Hearthfire be focusing on the Arcane? Some postulate that this next DLC will be “zombie themed” and arrive this Halloween, but that is purely speculation.

For PlayStation 3 Skyrim fans, Dawnguard is the next expansion they are expecting to recieve, as Bethesda has yet to give a concrete release date for the first round of DLC that has already arrived on the Xbox 360 and PC.

Earlier this month, Bethesda announced that due to quality concerns they would be delaying the release of Skyrim Dawnguard on the PS3. Will it arrive before Hearthfire? We’ll have to wait for official word from Bethesda on the status of their future projects.

    Nice another DLC that PS3 users will get screwed out of.

    Glad I own the superior console – an Xbox 360

      Really? I have one myself for games like the original Mass Effect. That POS console can barely handle the graphics of that game, it doesn’t have the processing power to keep up with the scaling and that shading.
      Then you have the red ring of death…MS had to recall thousands…
      You have to pay to play online…
      you have to pay to just go on Facebook on an XBox…
      They did not build wireless into the console originally (PS3 did) so you had to purchase the wireless device for the XBox, which cost about $70…
      You had to buy a secondary device to play HD DVDs (which flopped obviously)…
      You couldn’t use the HD DVD player device without a remote (which cost about $50, PS3s is about $30 (and you don’t need it))…

      So you want to keep saying XBox 360 is a superior console? MS does not have a track record for producing quality products, their track record mostly says that the consumers are their testers (Windows ME, XP, Vista, etc.)

      I’m sorry, but you are blind to how MS views you, as a dollar sign. PS3 at least caters to gamers in its design, and it can handle high end graphics with an issue…

      Think what you will, but be prepared to be shut down…

    Really hipster? You had to? It’s okay, we know you suffer from buyers remorse. We’ve all felt it at one point or another. I felt it when I got an Xbox AFTER the 360 came out only to figure out M$ was completely ditching it at the end of that year, forcing me to upgrade like 4 months later. -.-

    i still dont get why they are delaying dawnguard for ps3 for “quality concerns” …why didnt they delayed Skyrim itself on ALL platforms then?

    Jeez dude, wtf, I know how annoying it is not to get the dlc, but you don’t have to be an ass and squeal just because Bethesda’s being way to slow. I do agree with you however, but watch your language. Children read this dude.
