Xbox One news: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds update, NBA 2K18 release, FIFA 18 ratings – Express.co.uk
The NBA 2K18 early release date was set for September 15 but only for those who pre-order the game.
Anyone who does, gets the official Early Tip-Off Edition, which grants early access and is available on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Everyone else has to wait until September 19, although there’s also the option of downloading the NBA 2K18 Prelude demo.
The download size is around 11.76 GB and offers a taste of what’s to come later this week.
