Victoria 3 Update 1.3 Adds a New Agitator Role to Boost Political Movements

Victoria 3 Update 1.3 Steam/Paradox Development Studio

Yesterday was a good day for Victoria 3 fans as the game received a ton of content, both free and paid. The previously announced Voice of the People expansion was made available for purchase, and the free Update 1.3 went live for all owners of the game. Here, we will feature the latter.

A new agitator role is introduced and its job is to create or empower Political Movements. Players can also invite foreign exiled agitators to their country. The game received three new character interactions: Exile Character, Repatriate Exile, and Royal Marriage. A New Law group called Land Reform and a new Church and State Law known as State Atheism were added as well. Eight new achievements have been introduced as well.

The rest of the highlights of the update are mentioned below.
