Victoria II was released back on August 13th and today we get a major update for the game. It looks like a typical patch with some new wrinkles thrown in, a few bugs ironed out and the proverbial “economy balancing: that almost always has to take place as players learn to exploit loopholes in the game. Here is a list from Paradox of the major updates in patch 1.2:

- Playable Babylon added as a free DLC integrated in the patch
- Players can now play as any country, even if that country does not exist at the start of the game
- Rebalanced economy and revolt mechanics
- More historical flavor, with new countries, new decisions and new events added to the game
- Additions to the interface, with new outliner options for tracking influence, and a zoomed-out representation of armies & navies
- Improved AI, providing a more challenging experience
