Paradox Interactive | STOCKHOLM - 25 October 2023 - The young nations of South America, freed from the domination of European royalty, face a number of challenges. Continental wars of independence have proven fertile ground for military rule. Rapidly growing populations strain agrarian economies. The reforming Emperor of Brazil has a plan of modernization and liberalisation that threatens established powers in his own capital. Take the reins of a potential giant of the Americas in Victoria 3: Colossus of the South.
Colossus of the South is a new region pack for Victoria 3, Paradox’s grand strategy simulation of societies and economies of the Victorian Age. Focusing on the rise of Brazil as a significant regional power with additional content for other nations, Colossus of the South adds new events, decisions, and flavor to an exciting region for exploration and development.
Victoria 3: Colossus of the South includes content related to:
Reign of Pedro II: Historical actions highlighting the reforms and ambitions of Brazil’s Emperor Pedro the Magnanimous, including the abolition of slavery and the modernization of Brazil’s economy.
The Old Republic: The power of Brazilian landowners and the emergence of the Positivist revolution against the monarchy.
Populism: Challenges to the agrarian oligarchy in Brazil from anti-government bandits and the populist Integralist movement.
National Awareness: Development of a unique and diverse Brazilian culture, as well as expansionist goals in Paraguay, South American unification from Gran Colombia, and Pan-National movements of the Federation of the Andes and Rio de la Plata.
Amazonian Riches: Exploit the riches of the Amazon while avoiding international conflict and national disorder.
New Historical Characters: Coup leader and general Deodora da Fonseca, populist dictator Getulio Vargas, and more.
More content for South America: New events and journal entries and flavor for many countries in the region!
Victoria 3: Colossus of the South will be available on 14 November 2023. It will be included free for owners of the Victoria 3: Grand Edition or subscribers to the Victoria 3 Expansion Pass. It can be pre-ordered and bought separately for the suggested retail price of $5.99/£4.99/€5.99.
