'WWE 2K19' Download Time: When Can You Start Your Quest For A Million Bucks?

WWE 2K19 is almost officially here, which means gamers all over are looking to download and play as soon as possible on PS4, Xbox One and PC. You're going to want to start playing early this year too, because there's a ton of money to be won.

The earliest way to play WWE 2K19 is by purchasing the Woo! Edition or Deluxe Edition. If you own either of these, you can play WWE 2K19 right now. In fact, you've been able to play since Oct. 5.

What Time Can You Start playing WWE 2K19?

If you just have the regular version of WWE 2K19, you'll have to wait. Those on PC can start playing WWE 2K19 at 12 a.m. EDT on Oct. 9, meaning those on the west coast will be able to get started at 9 p.m. PDT tonight. We don't know for sure if PS4 and Xbox One gamers will see similar release times, but it's a safe bet to assume WWE 2K19 will be playable at 12 a.m. local time regardless of where you live and on what console you have.

You're going to want to get started early, because the new Million Dollar Challenge mode could mean big bucks. To enter, you must first beat all 15 competitors in the Million Dollar Challenge Tower and unlock the "Million Dollar Dominance" Achievement/Trophy. If you can do that, upload a video to the WWE 2K19 website cutting a promo about how you'll beat AJ Styles.

Those selected for the semi-final rounds will be notified around March 1, 2019. Semi-finalists enter into a tournament against each other, until one player emerges victorious. This person then competes against AJ Styles at WrestleMania for the big $1 Million prize.

Entries for the semi-final round are active now, and run until the end of January. Be sure to record and submit your promo video by then to be eligible.
