Bulletstorm devs parody Call of Duty series

03 Feb 11

Electronic Arts, Epic Games and People Can Fly have released a free, downloadable game that parodies Activision's Call of Duty series in hilarious fashion.

Entitled "Duty Calls", this short shooter doesn't shy away from taking multiple digs at the nature of the Call of Duty franchise. We may laugh, but Activision is still laughing all the way to the bank; EA yesterday revealed that its recently released Medal of Honor - a game intended as a direct challenge to the Call of Duty series - has managed 5 million unit sales to date despite releasing a month earlier than Call of Duty: Black Ops, which has sold in excess of 18 million units.

You can download the game here (a roughly 800MB download), or you can watch this complete playthrough video courtesy of Kotaku.
