Paradox Interactive’s ‘ultimate society simulator’ arrives in October


It took more than a decade for Paradox Interactive to announce a follow-up (opens in new tab) to its epic 19th century grand strategy game Victoria 2, but it won’t take much more than a year to get from there to release: Paradox dropped a new Victoria 3 (opens in new tab) trailer today showing off some gameplay and—this is the important bit—revealing that it will launch on Steam on October 25.

This is a big deal for Paradox fans, for whom Victoria 3 was a bit like Half-Life 3: A much-demanded sequel that seemed like it would never actually happen. As with so many things online, the long wait took on a life of its own as a meme, which Paradox leaned into with a meme contest (opens in new tab) shortly after Victoria 3 was launched.

That’s not the only big bit of society simulator news to arrive today. We’ve also got our first gameplay preview (opens in new tab) and, while Victoria 3 is still a couple months away from full release, calling our initial impressions “promising” seems like a vast undersell.
