Bulletstorm promo game downloaded 1.25m times

Epic's 'Duty Calls' spoof game lampoons Activision

Duty Calls, a free spoof game created to promote EA's upcoming shooter Bulletstorm, has seen 1.25 million downloads.

The 700MB, five minute Unreal engine game is a semi-playable jab at Activision's Call of Duty series, and is intended to suggest that the less serious Bulletstorm is a superior shooter.

The 1.25 million figure was announced via Twitter.

Bulletstorm, created by Painkiller dev People Can Fly with assistance from Epic, is released on February 22.
