Victoria 3, Paradox's upcoming grand strategy game, artwork and logo official

If you're itching for a brand new grand strategy game to sink your teeth into, you might be interested to hear that Paradox's Victoria 3 will be launching this October 25th. Much like its predecessor, Victoria 3 will be a socio-economic and political simulator that will task you with leading your people through the turbulent times of the 19th and 20th centuries.

What this means in gameplay terms is that you will have to develop your economy by building new industries and trading on the volatile markets, manage numerous conflicting factions within your own country through laws and reforms, as well as use diplomacy to fight back against your rivals while trying to push through your own agendas. And when all else fails, there's always the option to start a massive war in order to help even the scales!

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this madness looks like in action through the gameplay trailer below. Have a peek:

Once Victoria 3 finally arrives onto Steam I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a little bit more about Victoria 3 and its development process over at the official website. Enjoy!
