Skyrim: Hearth Fire – A Zombie-Themed DLC?



With the Dawnguard DLC out of the way, at least for XBox 360 and PC, it looks like Bethesda may have have some more content on the horizon.  ZeniMax Media, Bethesda Softworks’ parent company, filed a trademark application back in May for the name Hearth Fire under the already existing trademark for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.  This most likely would apply to another expansion, as plans for Skyrim to be supporting by large-scale DLCs was revealed even before the game’s release.  There’s always the possibility that this amounts to nothing more than Bethesda looking to protect their brand, but that kind of speculation is just no fun.

According to Elder Scrolls canon, Hearth Fire is the ninth month of the calendar year.  It is also the name of one of the game’s Conjuration skill books.  The fact that Conjuration magic can be used to summon the undead, as well as the fact that the DLC should land sometime around Halloween, makes us wonder if we have a zombie-themed expansion on our hands.  While Skyrim already features zombie-like creatures, the Draugr,  we’re hoping for something a little more substantial.

Perhaps players will be able to take on the role of a powerful Necromancer or will have to fight off hordes of shambling walkers.  I’m personally hoping for a sort of Walking Dead scenario set in the Skyrim universe that will allow me to board up the windows of my castle – or just pull up the drawbridge.  We’ll be on the lookout for more information on what exactly Hearth Fire might be.  In the meantime, stay tuned to OnlySP for more news and make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-the-minute information.




I'm a new dad, gaming machine, and beard aficionado. With a little one in the house, I've come to embrace the single-player experience, as it is much less likely to send me into a profanity-laced, controller-throwing tantrum. Writing and video games are two of my greatest passions, so this is a natural fit for me. As long as it doesn't require me to perform coordinated dance moves in front of my Kinect, i'm willing to pen my thoughts on it. Aside from gaming, I love music (Smashing Pumpkins), coffee (Red-Eye), and sushi (Yellowtail). All offerings of my aforementioned favorites will be accepted with open arms and, if you're lucky, i'll let you touch my beard. Just don't pull on it. That hurts.


RUMOR: Xbox One S All Digital Images, Release Details Leak Ahead of Official Unveiling



xbox one s all digital

Images of a discless Xbox One S have leaked online, confirming rumors from last year. revealed the pictures it acquired yesterday, as well the name Xbox One S All Digital, prices, and a launch date. Check out the pictures down below.

The console would allow users who are less oriented in the physical media space to take advantage of an all-digital device.

Some of the speculation regarding all-digital hardware pictures a cheaper, maybe even smaller model. However, yesterday’s leak suggests that, while the Xbox One S All Digital may come bundled with games, the price will stick at around USD$250 with no real change in physical appearance.

The only visual difference between the Xbox One S and the Xbox One S All Digital is the lack of a disc drive. Otherwise, the two slimmed down pieces of hardware are visually identical.

As well as a look at the console, the website says that an official reveal will come April 16 with a release following on May 7.

The pictures uncovered do not come from an official source, so holding off believing everything here is for the best. That said, a device such as this makes sense for Microsoft considering the Xbox Game Pass and the inevitability of a more digitally-inclined market.
