Xbox unveils Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family, giving up to five friends or family members access to Game Pass Ultimate for a total of 21.99 per month.

Last week, the Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family logo already leaked out, and Microsoft has now revealed the subscription form itself. Xbox and PC players in Ireland and Colombia can test it now. For $21.99 a month, up to five friends or family members, regardless of whether they live under the same roof, can share an Xbox Game Pass subscription. However, the users must live in the same country or region.

Everyone will keep their own account, Xbox profile, saves and achievements, according to the Xbox website. Also, all users can play at the same time, both together and separately. Family settings, which allow users to impose restrictions on children’s play time, game selection and friend requests, will also work in conjunction with the new subscription format.

Users can activate Game Pass Friends & Family through the Xbox website and Microsoft Store. One user is designated as the primary user, who can then add and remove other users from the group subscription. A maximum of eight people per year can accept an invitation to the same group. Users can be part of a maximum of one group.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate includes a membership to EA Play and access to Xbox Live Gold.

For users who already have an active Game Pass subscription and want to become the primary account for the group subscription, the outstanding days of the subscription will be converted to Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family. That happens as follows:

  • 30 Days Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Becomes 18 Days Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family
  • 30 Days Xbox Game Pass (Console) Becomes 12 Days Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family
  • 30 days PC Game Pass becomes 12 days Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family
  • 30 days of Xbox Live Gold becomes 12 days of Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family
  • 30 days of EA Play becomes 6 days of Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family
