    Upgrades are possible, however it wont be officially released until OCT 18th. After then, it should be pushed through the store app.

    The question is if you can download it from store and install it anytime you want.

    if you cannot wait just download your appropriate file for doing the upgrade right now. (from MDL:D)
    After Oct 18/GA you will be notified upon the availability of such new 8.1 version in your store. There has been a recent "hotfix" which was made for this event preparing your current installation.
    After you agree the terms when offered, you will be directed through the upgrade process. You must be connected to the Internet and must be waiting for 2.5/3.6 gig of data
