The first event for Resident evil 6 is now live, challenging players to simply kill the most zombies.

The event runs until October 20 and offers points to everyone taking part, but do well and you'll be handsomely rewarded.

The winner of the event earns 50,000 RE Points, which is nearly enough to unlock a bonus Mercenaries costumes.

ANDYARKLAY is the current leader, having put an end to 32,872 zombies.
