Hi psimun, Lumion is forward compatible, so you'll be able to load Lumion 8.5 Scene files in 9.0. in other words, you won't really need version 8.5.
However, if you pre-order version 9.0 before it is released (once this option is available), you'll get Lumion 8.5 in the interim period before the release of 9.0. And yes, you'd be able to use Lumion 8.5 after 9.0 is released - just not at the same time (as they use the same License Key).
Let us know if you've got any other questions.
