Microsoft is working on a plan where you can use the Xbox Game Pass subscription with family and friends. The new logo, which has surfaced on Twitter, shows the Game Pass Friends & Family branding.
What is Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family?
A while ago, Microsoft started testing the family plan for Game Pass users in Colombia and Ireland. Game Pass subscribers who are already enrolled in the testing program have the right to expand the account to up to four users.
According to the image that appeared on Twitter, this plan will be valid for both friends and family members. It should be reminded that Microsoft does not impose any family restrictions on testers in the two countries. Only the other four users are required to be in the same country.
Although Game Pass Friends & Family has not been officially announced for now, it is available at a higher price in Ireland. While the normal Game Pass price in the country is 12.99 euros per month; 21.99 euros are required from those who join the family plan. However, let us remind you that with the participation of four users, it comes at a price of 4.4 euros per person.
It’s unclear when Game Pass Friends & Family will be available. But the new family plan will include all the benefits of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for up to four friends or family members. In other words, it will be possible to access Xbox Cloud Gaming, Xbox Live Gold and PC Game Pass with a single subscription.
Microsoft right now offers Xbox Game Pass or PC Game Pass for $9.99 each month. Neither incorporates online multiplayer capacities, yet you can move up to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $14.99, and this opens Game Pass for console, PC, EA Play access, and online multiplayer.
This new family plan, that will presently probable be marked Xbox Game Pass Friends and Family, will incorporate generally a similar Xbox Game Pass Ultimate advantages for four different companions or relatives. That incorporates admittance to Xbox Cloud Gaming, Xbox Live, and, surprisingly, the PC Game Pass forms of games.
