ESF is a fast paced, 3rd person fighter based on the hit anime, Dragonball Z. Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. Some are stronger in hand to hand combat, others are better with energy attacks. Play in three different game modes, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the dragonballs. There is a learning curve so newbies beware. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

As of a recent meeting, Sunday December 24th, it has been decided that Earths Special Forces will be OPEN BETA. So what does this mean? A snapshot of the current inteam will be made available publicly, on a bi-weekly basis. That is right, an exact copy of what is being tested inteam will be available to you. This does come with a down side, however. Here is what harSens has to say about the open beta:

"It might be unbalanced, buggy and contains some console commands to make testing easier, that could be considered hacks. If you want to play competitively at a stable server, this might not be the release for you. However, if you would like to take a look in our kitchen, you might want to check this out."

When we say a snapshot will be available, it will be just that. No extra effort will be made to ensure things are complete or stable. The release will contain what ever new stuff has been added on that day of the release.

And now Earths Special Forces open beta has begun! While you download here is a short promo video showing off some of the features in the 1/6/06 build.

a couple things that should be kept in mind...
* The open beta is not complete. It is an exact copy of what the teams internal version look like on the day of release.
* Melee has NOT been touched.
* There are intentional exploits in place for testing purposes

Advanced melee:
is currently disabled by default, it is very buggy, because most its animations are missing. We do not plan on fixing this, since it will be replaced with a new system anyways. You can re-enable it using mp_simplemelee 1. The same is true for Gohan's shield; it is very buggy and needs so much new functionality that we plan on completely redoing it. Therefore it is disabled for now.
