Paradox Interactive released a brand new video this week detailing its progress Victoria 3 and where are they with the game. The video is the first of their monthly updates in which they let fans who have begged the game for years know where they are. This first video is basically a look at the developer’s diary once they’ve started with the basics of what the game will be like, so it’s very informative but not too visual. Enjoy!
