I've never played without DLCs, but most people say they are basically needed to enjoy the game.

That said, you might want to wait for the release of Victoria 3 (which should be before the end of the year) first, as Victoria 2 is a pretty old game.

Haven't tried the game without the DLCs, but I'd imagine they're more-or-less necessary for the "proper" experience.

Back then, the expansions also included the bug fixes, so yes, you need the two expansions. That will give you an almost complete game. :)

Here is my topic


In short, I optimized the game in many terms of religious conversion and cultural / national assimilation, optimized colonial migration, all its done, work perfect and now I will start foreign migration, which will be the closure of the first stage of modification.

Probably just before the start of my first campaign, I will slightly optimize the technology tree and reforms, but I do not want to introduce too big changes without starting the campaign, then I will probably spend more time on the game itself and any corrections, so you will have to wait for a bigger modification, and in a moment the Victoria 3 will be on sale... I supouse I will start work on modifications from first days I will buy V3, its better work than writting or talking about plans :oops: I wish Im new on this series becouse I saw many people from 2010 looking for good modification to V2 and I know how make gameplay much better, I have this game from 5 days ! and now I have something that many players looking for in last 10 years I hope.
