Victoria 3 Dates Explained

Victoria 3 is based during the reign of Queen Victoria and beyond, up until near the start of the second world war. This first decision, to choose the best starter country, is an important one! Any country existing during this time is available for the player to choose.

Once the player has chosen a country they must oversee the growth of the country, including the economy, foreign affairs and diplomacy, potential revolutions, depressions, and disputes. The century-long span of the game allows players to consider longer term strategy while making decisions.

Every new game begins on January 1st 1836, and ends exactly 100 years later on January 1st 1936. This gives the player a specific time-limit and structure to work within. The very specific time means the game is restrictive, but makes it all the more exciting and challenging. Whatever decisions the players makes will have an effect on how the world looks when the 100 years ends.

Each game would take a good few hours from start to finish, allowing the player enough time to oversee the momentous historical events happening as they play. At present there is no way to extend the start or end date of Victoria 3, however we will not rule out the possibility for a DLC as has occurred with previous Victoria titles.
