Paradox Interactive Releases First Monthly Update For Victoria 3

Paradox Interactive has released a brand new video this week detailing the progress of Victoria 3 and where they're at with the game. The video is the first of their monthly updates in which they're letting fans who have been begging for the game for years know where they're at. This first video is essentially a look at the developer diaries as they have started the groundwork on what the game will be, so a lot of information but not a ton of visuals. Enjoy!
