Pre-Order If You Want to Play ASAP
If you know you want to play this game the second it's released, you'll want to pre-order a digital copy.
If you pre-order a digital copy of the game you'll be able to pre-load it ahead of the release date. Pre-loading will allow you to jump right in when the game goes live at 12AM Eastern.
Again, the game's release date is currently set for October 12th and that means those of you in western time zones who pre-order a digital copy will be able to start playing on October 11th.
If you pre-order a physical copy you won't get your delivery until the morning, afternoon, or night of October 12th.
