For years, every Paradox game-related stream or video I’ve seen has had “where’s Victoria 3?” and “Viccy 3 when?” in the comments underneath. The grand strategy sequel was finally announced last year, more than ten years after the release of Victoria 2, and now we have a release date as well: October 25th. What will people put in the comments underneath Paradox game trailers now? Hop below for the answer (and a release date trailer).
And here’s the answer: they’ll put complaints about DLC and bugs in the comments. Plus ça change.
If you don’t know, Victoria is another of Paradox’s grand strategy games, this time focused on simulating the social and economic machinery of the Victorians. There’s war, sure, but you’ll generally spend less time on the battlefield than in Europa Universalis, and more time pulling economic levers and twirling diplomatic knobs.

I’ve never played a Victoria game before but I’m looking forward to messing with its simulation in a couple of months when it releases via Steam.
