Victoria 3: no more PC Game Pass at launch, becomes Steam exclusive

Victoria 3

Victoria 3 will not be on PC Game Pass at launch, but will be available exclusively on Steam. The announcement was made by Paradox Interactive, which did not explain in detail the reasons for this step backwards. If you remember, the agreement with Microsoft had even been announced with a trailer:

Let's read what Paradox wrote:

"The game will be a Steam exclusive at launch. our partners have decided that Victoria 3 will not be part of the Game Pass and will not be sold in the Microsoft Store. Xbox fans of Paradox's epic grand strategy titles can enjoy our other games such as Crusader Kings III, Stellaris, Shadowrun Trilogy, Hearts of Iron IV and others that are on Game Pass already now and we can't wait to share more details of our next collaboration with Xbox in the future. "

Despite the talk of future agreements with Microsoft and despite the release make no mention of disagreements between the two companies, it is clear that something behind the scenes must have happened. Hard to say what (a failed renegotiation?), But at this point we don't know if Victoria 3 will ever make it to the Game Pass or not.

For the rest we remind you that Victoria 3 will be available starting from October 25, 2022 on Steam, only for PC.

Victoria 3 Grand Edition comes bundled with the first expansion, which is yet to be announced. This is a $30 value item. It also comes with the American Buildings pack, which cannot be purchased separately. There are also the Immersion, Radio, and Art packs.

All together, it comes with $50 worth of content. The Grand Edition will cost $80. If you are wondering about the expansion packs, perhaps looking to previous games will enlighten us. Victoria 2 had DLC focused on specific cultures and their military. There are also packs that focus on major points in history, such as the American Revolution.

It has been 12 years since Victoria 2 came out on PC, so fans sure are due for another. Thankfully, they will only have to wait a couple of months. Victoria 3 will be coming out on October 25th for PC.
