EB Games Australia has broken the Resident Evil 6 release date, choosing to offer the the game to customers four days early.

In a post on its official Facebook page, the retailer posted “The zombie apocalypse is upon us... EARLY! Resident Evil 6 is now available to purchase in store and online!”, before encouraging gamers to check local stores for availability.

Sure enough, the EB Games online store shows the game available for purchase on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Resident Evil 6 was not expected to release until October 2.
