Microsoft announces Game Pass Friends and Family subscription plan
Microsoft announced the Game Pass Friends and Family Program, which allows Game Pass members to share their subscriptions with friends and family. It brings the same specs as Game Pass Ultimate, but with the former you'll be able to share with four other members of your circle of friends and family. However, the Xbox Game Pass Friends and Family package costs €21.99 per month, while Game Pass Ultimate costs €12.99 per month.
Microsoft is currently testing new subscription plans in Ireland and Colombia. But in the FAQ, the company has confirmed that it will bring its new Game Pass offering to more countries in the coming months. However, the software giant did not mention the next countries that will benefit from the new subscription model. It's also worth noting that the person you're sharing your Game Pass subscription with must be in the same country as you.
Here's what you'll get with an Xbox Game Pass Friends and Family subscription:
- Share Ultimate content with four people
- New games are being added all the time
- Includes EA Play membership
- Exclusive member discounts and offers
- In-Game Content and Partner Offers
