Microsoft is testing new Game Pass family plan with ability to add up to 4 members

Tech giant Microsoft has started testing a new Xbox Game Pass plan that will allow multiple people, including friends and family, to share Game Pass Ultimate benefits. The Company begins officially testing the Xbox Game Pass Family Plan in Ireland and Colombia. The new plan may officially debut as the ‘Xbox Game Pass family plan’

“We are always looking for ways to deliver experiences that offer players more choice and value in how they discover and experience games with their community,” the company said in a blog post.

In this plan, the testers will be able to add up to four people to their subscription as long as they are in the same country.

New Game Pass Benefits

The plan is expected to offer several benefits which include the usual Game Pass games every month and other benefits such as unique access to content even when sharing a Single Pass.

You pay a flat fee every month and get access to tons of different games that you can play anytime, anywhere. On top of that, you get access to locally stored games too. In all, it’s a win-win.

Game Pass family plan Pricing

If you reside in Columbia or Ireland, you can sign up for the preview and try it out yourself. To start off, you need to first purchase the Xbox Game Pass Insider Preview. Testers in Ireland have to pay €21.99 (roughly Rs 1,782) for this family plan.

Once you get the subscription, you can head to the Subscriptions page on your Xbox console, PC, or cloud and check the validity and number of people you can share this plan with.
