Microsoft Announces Price and Other Details of Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family Plan

Microsoft recently started testing Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family. A new subscription form that is slightly more expensive, but which more people can use. This variant is currently only available in Colombia and Ireland. It is unknown at the time of writing when it will be rolled out worldwide.

However, through a newly published FAQ we do get some more information, including about the price you have to pay for this subscription form. The most important points are summarized below:

  • You can share your subscription via the Friends & Family plan with up to four others. The invitation will be sent by email and new users will have to log in afterwards with their personal account.
  • The main user is the only one who can invite others, as well as remove them from the subscription.
  • The monthly rate for this plan in Ireland is €21.99 per month. This price is expected to apply throughout Europe.
  • It is possible to upgrade your existing Game Pass Ultimate subscription. A monthly subscription (which is cheaper) means 18 days of membership to the Friends & Family plan after conversion.
  • Once the period is up, it will renew at the aforementioned price unless you switch back to a cheaper plan.
  • If you have a regular PC or Xbox Game Pass subscription, you get 12 days of Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family.
  • 30 days of EA Play membership is equivalent to 6 days of Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family.
  • Sharing your membership is only possible in the country where you live. If a member of the group changes his country, that user will be automatically unsubscribed.
  • You can take out a maximum of one Friend & Family subscription.

Many more questions are answered in the FAQ on the Xbox website, so if you are more interested, you can go here. As soon as Microsoft announces when this plan will be available in the Benelux, we will let you know.
