The countdown is subjective to where you live and how you pre-ordered. Digital release is at 12:00:01 a.m. EST US. The physical copies will be shipped at 12:00:01 a.m. your local timezone. For me, it is hours off, because I got the digital, though for the most part, it is mostly correct. The time on the countdown is 4:00 am EST, just FYI. It will come out at 9:00 a.m on the 9th for me.
