Carefully guide your nation from the era of absolute monarchies in the early 19th century, through expansion and colonization, to finally become a truly great power by the dawn of the 20th century.
Victoria 2 is a grand strategy game played during the colonial era of the 19th century, where the player takes control of a country, guiding it through industrialisation, political reforms, military conquest and colonisation. Experience an in-depth political simulation where every action you take will have various consequences over all the world. The population will react to your decisions based on their political awareness, social class, as well as their willingness to accept or revolt against their government.
The best chance at playing Victoria II at recommended sys specs on a 1920x1080 screen resolution will be if your PC has at least the GeForce 8800 GS/Radeon X1900 Series graphics card. The CPU required to meet recommended requirements is either an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ or Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz processor. This type of gaming rig will deliver you around the 60 Frames per second. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 9 or Victoria II won’t run. In short you need a 11 year old PC for best Victoria II performance.
