A new season of basketball approaches, and just like clockwork this year’s basketball video games are starting to come out. NBA 2K19 is slated to launch September 11 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, but you can pre-order a copy now. And if you pre-order the 20th Anniversary Edition, you’ll get to play it early, starting on September 7.
If you’re particularly eager to get your hands on the game, GameStop has announced plans to open early to let players in the US pick it up early (whether that’s on the night of September 6 or September 10). Alternatively, you can check out the Prelude demo that is available now and gives a sampling of the game’s story mode.
