Victoria 3: Voice of the People Now Available

Immersion Pack Launches Alongside New Expansion Pass

STOCKHOLM - 22 May 2023 - Lose yourself in the dramatic political maneuvering of the 19th century as famous figures from history lobby for their preferred policies in Voice of the People, a new immersion pack for Victoria 3, available today. With dozens of new historical characters, you can write an intriguing new history of the Victorian age, where nihilist authors and liberal reformers challenge established authorities.

Victoria 3 is Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy simulation of society in the century from Andrew Jackson to World War I. Players guide the industrial, political and social development of a historic nation, moving with the tides of time as new ideologies and shifting political alliances challenge your grand plans. In Voice of the People, more historical flavor is added with new characters integrated into the new Agitator mechanic, as well as a deeper simulation of French politics of the century, with new events, missions, and more.

Features of Victoria 3: Voice of the People include:

  • Over 60 New Historical Agitators: Explore new alternate histories with real historical characters, including John Brown, Emmeline Pankhurst, and Enver Pasha. These characters are integrated into the new free Agitator system, which allows for greater variety and engagement in the political reform and development of your nation.

  • Special Agitator Actions: Aid the agitators by promoting them to lead Interest Groups, or send them into exile to blunt their impact. You can also, in some cases, invite other nations’ exiles into your society to take advantage of their ideas.

  • Unique French Content: New events, journal missions, and decisions inspired by French history. Press your advantage in Northern Africa, back one of royal claimants, or establish a strong French Empire in Europe and worldwide.

  • New French Buildings: Historic structures from France added to the map.

  • New Art: A paper map unique to Voice of the People, wrapped in a new art nouveau appearance. New animations for revolutions highlight the interest groups in revolt,  and new clothing and uniforms are added for many societies.

The release of Voice of the People accompanied a major free update to Victoria 3, available to all Victoria players. This update includes the new Agitator System, which allows individual characters to appear to push for political reforms that may not be available or desired by your current government. There will also be new political ideologies for France, changes to the world map, and reworks of the legislative and revolutionary processes, along with many other changes.

Victoria 3: Voice of the People is available for the suggested retail price of $14.99/£12.99/€14.99.

Paradox Interactive has also announced a new Expansion Pass for Victoria 3, which includes Voice of the People, two already released cosmetic packs, one forthcoming art pack, and the upcoming first major expansion to the game. This bundle offers a significant discount on buying each item separately.

The Victoria 3 Expansion Pass includes:

American Buildings Pack: In many ways, the 19th century was the American Century - continental expansion, rapid population growth, and the stirring of an overseas empire. This pack includes unique building models for the United States, special American designs for other structures and the American Capitol Building as a landmark.

Melodies for the Masses: Inspired by the lives of the common people of the Victorian age, this selection of music draws on the sounds of farms and the towns. Drink in the musical reflections on the rural world that dominated society until the rise of the factory and the shriek of the steam whistle.

Voice of the People: This immersion pack for Victoria 3 adds more historical content to the game, including over 60 historical characters who can Agitate for change in your society. Major historical figures like Mazzini and Lenin may arise in your nation, pushing their agenda - either with you or against you. Voice of the People also includes new historical content for France, including events, political parties and unique historical decisions and journal entries. New art includes French building models, a new paper map, and a new UI theme.

**Dawn of Wonder: From the glory of the sunrise to the glow of the gas lamp, this Art Pack takes the theme of light and shadow to add new life to the visual experience. A day-night cycle marks the time you spend in game, and other images shine with new life as the dawn of a new age is reflected in the art itself.

Sphere of Influence:** In a more civilized age, the pen is supposed to be mightier than the sword. The first major expansion for Victoria 3 increases the depth and immersion of the diplomatic game. Build Power Blocs to protect regional interests, invest in foreign economies and interfere in your subjects' politics.
