It’s official, Xbox is currently testing a new Xbox Game Pass subscription plan. It allows several people to share the advantages of Game Pass Ultimate, we will explain all that to you.
Xbox Game Pass family membership is official
We have been talking about the arrival of the Xbox Game Pass Family subscription since March and now it is official with two conditions. The first is to be registered in the Xbox Insider program. The second is to reside in Ireland or Colombia.
If you meet both of these conditions, you must purchase the “Xbox Game Pass – Insider Preview” option from the Microsoft Store in your country. Please note that this is a test and that Microsoft may adjust this new formula before rolling it out to everyone.
What are the Xbox Game Pass family options?
This new subscription offers new possibilities for those who want to share an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription with family or friends. These are the current conditions in the trial version:
- A total of 5 people can benefit from the Xbox Game Pass family subscription
- No content sharing between members, each person has unique access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate games, content and benefits.
- The people you share your membership with don’t have to be “Xbox Insiders,” but they do need to reside in the same country as you. Registration is limited and will remain open as long as the offer is available.
- Joining Game Pass – Insider Preview will convert the remaining time of your current subscription to the new plan, based on the monetary value of the previous subscription. For example, a full month of Ultimate will convert to an 18-day subscription for that plan. This way, you won’t lose any of the remaining value of your existing subscription when you convert.
- The conversion is final and users must wait until their new subscription expires before switching back to a previous subscription.
- Conversion is not available for invited members of a group. Before joining a group, a group member can cancel their existing subscription or wait for it to expire. If they don’t have a Microsoft account, invited friends and family will need to create a new Microsoft account and sign in to participate.
- Xbox All Access members cannot participate in this trial
- In Colombia, some parts of the preview have not been localized and may be displayed in English.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscription Content Reminder
- Xbox Game Pass console subscription.
- Xbox Game Pass subscription for PC.
- Xbox Live Gold subscription (to play online on Xbox consoles).
- EA Play subscription (Electronic Arts games catalogue).
- Selection of Xbox games that can be streamed through the Cloud, on mobile or on PC.
What is the price of the Xbox Game Pass family subscription?
Microsoft specifies that one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate becomes 18 days of Xbox Game Pass Family.
Doing a simple rule of three to determine the cost price of one day by multiplying it by 31, we arrive at €22.37 for 31 days. Therefore, we can deduce that, in general, you need to add €10 to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription to benefit from the price of Xbox Game Pass Family, or around €22.
Please note that this is only an estimate on our part and that Microsoft has yet to accurately communicate the price of this new subscription in the future. If our calculations are confirmed, the price of the Xbox Game Pass Family subscription should be between 20 and 25 euros per month. If five people share the subscription, the cost price would thus be a maximum of €5 per month, which is a very advantageous price. Combined with the conversion from Xbox Live Gold to Game Pass, that would come at a pretty incredible price.
When will Xbox Game Pass Family be available in Europe and France?
At the moment, this new subscription is only released on a trial basis in two countries and only for members of Xbox Insiders. Why these two particular countries were chosen is unknown, but they are counting on Xboxygen to follow the progress of the implementation in the other countries, particularly France, Belgium, Canada and Switzerland. We imagine it will be available by the end of the year.
