Edition Differences and Pre-order Bonus for Victoria 3
Which edition should you buy?
If you're looking forward to the release of Victoria 3 but don't know which version to get, then you've come to the right place! Find out the difference between the base version of the game and the Deluxe Edition, along with the pre-order bonus.
First and foremost is the pre-order bonus for Victoria 3, which features the beautiful soundtrack from the game's predecessor, Victoria II, from way back in 2010. Better yet, not only will this include all of the digital soundtracks for the second entry to the series, but they’ll also be remastered tracks, meaning that you'll get the best quality for these songs that exist yet! This bonus pays tribute to the second entry into the series, and it is a wonderful soundtrack we sincerely recommend you don't miss out on!
For pre-ordering Victoria 3 and getting the bonus, you'll get the following:

Deluxe Edition — Victoria 3 Grand Edition
Now, for the Grand Edition for Victoria 3 — for those that pre-order the title, you'll get the pre-order bonus, alongside a slew of additional content that'll unlock throughout the coming months, ensuring a steady flow of content coming in by intervals.
Aside from the base game, you'll receive the Expansion Pass for Victoria 3, which features numerous items that will contain additional content for you to enjoy.
The first item of the Expansion Pass is the first major content update for Victoria 3, an unannounced expansion that we've yet to know the contents of. Given the "expansion" title, we speculate that this will be a rather significant DLC featuring numerous items. This item will be priced at $29.99 separately.
You'll also get access to the American Buildings Pack, a day-one DLC including buildings to make your towns more Americanised. This content pack will not be sold separately — it can only be acquired by getting the Grand Edition of Victoria 3.
Additionally, you'll get three extra packs containing items that are to be announced and released at a later date, including the Immersion Pack, priced at $14.99; Radio Pack, priced at $4.99; and Art Pack, priced at $4.99. This gives the Grand Edition an approximate total of $54.96 worth of extra content once everything's been released!
For purchasing Victoria 3's Grand Edition, you'll get the following items:
- Victoria 3 Expansion 1 (To Be Announced)
- Victoria 3 American Buildings Pack (Day 1)
- Victoria 3 Immersion Pack (To Be Announced)
- Victoria 3 Radio Pack (To Be Announced)
- Victoria 3 Art Pack (To Be Announced)
