Victoria 3 announced for PC
Paradox Development Studio has revealed that it is working on a third entry in the Victoria grand strategy series.
Society simulator Victoria 3 is set in the Victorian era and tasks players with seeing to the needs and desires of the population while dealing with cultural, economic, and ideological divisions. Players can import goods, tax their citizens, make scientific and social progress, deal with neighboring nations, and more.

- Wonders of the Industrial Age: Scientific and social progress give you the chance to improve the lives of your citizens.
- Sophisticated Economic System: Import goods to keep costs low, export goods to enrich your citizens, and then tax that wealth to advance your plans.
- Challenging Diplomacy: Maintain harmonious relations with your neighbors or provoke a crisis to grab valuable resources or force open new markets.
