Victoria II Patch 1.3 Released

Paradox Interactive have announced the release of a new patch for Victoria II that brings numerous improvements to the acclaimed grand strategy game.

Major features of patch 1.3  include:
- Improved AI for economy and military matters
- Economy system rebalanced, with support for proper free-market adaption
- New system for how gun boat diplomacy and bankruptcies work
- Socialists can now back political reforms and Liberals can do social reforms (though each less than the other)
- Pop promotion and assimilation have received a major overhaul
- Artillery is now a more useful unit, and mobilization does not punish sparsely populated countries as much
- Many bug fixes, game balance tweaks and interface improvements

The patch is now available for all Victoria II owners though the game launcher and on all leading digital distribution platforms.
