Today marks the release of Clan Quest Mod version 2.1. This version has been undergoing work for some time, and it really shows for itself; there's a ton of new features being added in this edition of the mod.
Most prominent is the fully functional achievement system available as an add-on to the game. Most gamers are familiar with this feature seen in many other titles: you complete challenges in the game and you are given a metal with a fun icon and a slick name. This achievement system does just that, with 36 goals for players to reach for. This system is not cobbled together by any means, either. New achievements pop up on your screen upon receiving them, and all of your awards can be reviewed in game via a simple menu interface.
Next on the list of new features are several new voices being provided. Previous versions of Clan Quest Mod left many of the new dialog lines unvoiced, often in the face of not being able to find a suitable actor to fill the roll. Version 2.1 completes fills out the roster a bit more. Skelter, Lorenzo, Jane, Dennis, Rico, and Darnell are all characters, new and old, given voices to makes the mod more complete than ever before.
Of course Clan Quest Mod, couldn't have the word 'quest' in it without at least one new quest being added in this edition. This next adventure begins after the player completes Fat Larry's mission to retrieve a briefcase filled with money from the clutches of a gang transaction. Should you return the case to Larry, you'll be contacted by a member of the duped gang and coerced into completing several contract killings. This, of course, is a mission geared towards Kindred that wish to use their gifts for evil and not good.
Meanwhile in the Bloodlines community several other fantastic patches and mods have been created since the last version of Clan Quest Mod, so in the spirit of trying to keep as many of the mods packaged together, several of these have been rolled into Clan Quest Mod as well. This includes keeping up with the latest versions of the Unofficial Patch, bringing it up to 7.3. This is integrated directly into CQM. Also featured is Camarilla Edition version 1.4 which adds a new quest from Bertram, as well as an in-game online college, and customizable night club music.
Last but not least is the feature that many have been waiting for: the new cut scene providing a real striptease dance performance by the game's sexiest Vampire, Velet Velour. This scene is about a minute long, but can probably be enjoyed many times over by fans of Miss Velour's aestetics.
Naturally this is all building from the foundation set by previous versions of the mod which include these key, core features:
- Eight new quests: one available to each of the playable clans, and one quest for evil players.
- Two new cut scenes integrated into vigilante scenarios
- Seamless integration of most other major mods created for VtM:B including the Arsenal Mod, Camarilla Edition, Pop's Difficulty Mod, and the Music Mod.
- Selective installation of many custom PC and NPC skins and models created by the VtM:B community
- New voice acting provided by semi-professional voice actors.
