Victoria III has 45 different achievements with varying difficulty levels, ranging from very easy to very hard ones. They have no in-game effects and are used mainly highlight different gaming experiences by providing players "goals" to strive for.

Once the requirements for an achievement have been completed a notification will pop-up to let the player know about it -- note that this will happen once per an achievements (unless the achievements are removed from the player profile using 3rd party tools). Depending on the gaming platform, the achievement can then be used as a vanity item to be displayed on the player's profile.

Achievements can only be gained in single-player games using game rules that don't block achievements (for example, AI behavior towards player can't be lenient). Playing game in offline mode (saving game in offline even once) permanently disables achievements for that savegame. They can be earned while playing older versions of the game as long as they were present in that version.

It is not possible to gain achievements if the checksum has been changed -- either by tampering with game files, or by running the game using mods that affect gameplay mechanics (graphical mods do not affect checksum), or a corrupted installation (the Ironman mode icon will change to reflect this).

Note: For convenience purposes, this article references the Steam achievements mechanics, but they may be available on other platforms as well. On Steam, it is possible to see the achievements sorted by the percentage of users that managed to complete them by going to the game's global achievements page (for more precise numbers one can use the Steam web API).

List of achievements

  • The descriptions on this page are taken from the in-game achievement list; the descriptions on Steam (or other platforms) may be different.
  • The Notes column is to clarifying information regarding the achievement or to add short helpful tips. It should not be longer than 2-3 lines (in total).
  • The Victoria 3 column indicates whether an achievement requires a certain DLC to complete it.
  • The Ver column indicates the initial version the achievement has appeared in and thus the earliest version that it can be completed on.
  • The DI column indicates the achievement's difficulty level. The initial listing uses the game's difficulty categorization, however, it can be changed according to player consensus.
The difficulty levels are: E = Easy, M = Medium, H = Hard, VH = Very Hard, UC = Uncategorized.
