Cubicle 7 has announced a 5e-powered edition of the steampunk RPG Victoriana.
In addition, the fantasy game with a Victorian feel will be published under the Open Gaming License. The OGL is a public license by Wizards of the Coast that and is used to enable third-party publishers to create 5e content, the same rule set as D&D.
There is a Victoriana 3rd edition, and no 4th. So it seems that this new edition of Victoriana is Victoriana 5e, where the 5e is D&D’s 5e.
Victoriana takes place in a fantastic alternate world of 1887, where the old ways of magic and tradition are losing ground to science, revolution, and the cloying smoke of industrialisation. The player characters, or Associates, navigate this dangerous world, solving mysteries, making social connections, and confronting horrors, while uncovering the secret conspiracies that operate in the shadows. Whether the Associates fight them or join them remains to be seen…
Cubicle 7 will release a Player’s Guide first and suggest that adventure books and bestiary will be published next.
