Xbox Game Pass family: trial subscription at €22 for 5 people! | Xbox One

It’s official, Xbox is now testing a new Xbox Game Pass subscription plan. This allows more people to share the advantages of Game Pass Ultimate, we explain all that to you.

The Xbox Game Pass Family Membership Official

We have been talking about the arrival of the Xbox Game Pass Family subscription since March and it is now official in two conditions. The first is to register for the Xbox Insider program. The second is to live in Ireland or Colombia.

If you meet these two conditions, you must purchase the “Xbox Game Pass – Insider Preview” option at the Microsoft Store in your country. Remember that this is a test and that Microsoft may adjust this new formula before releasing it 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. Here are the current conditions of the trial version:

  • A total of 5 people can benefit from a family subscription to Xbox Game Pass
  • No content is shared between members, each person has unique access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate games, content and benefits
  • The people you share your membership with do not have to be “Xbox Insiders”, but must live in the same country as you. Registration is limited and will remain open as long as the offer lasts.
  • Joining Game Pass – Insider Preview will convert the remaining time of your current subscription to the new plan, based on the amount of money in the old subscription. For example, a full month of Ultimate converts to an 18-day subscription for that plan. This way you won’t lose any remaining value of your existing subscription on conversion.
  • 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 current 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 join.
  • Xbox All Access members cannot participate in this trial
  • In Colombia, some parts of the preview are not localized and may be displayed in English

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscription Content Reminder

  • Xbox Game Pass Console subscription.
  • Xbox Game Pass PC subscription.
  • Xbox Live Gold subscription (to play online on Xbox consoles).
  • EA Play subscription (Electronic Arts games catalog).
  • A selection of Xbox games that can be streamed via the Cloud, on mobile or PC.

What is the price of an Xbox Game Pass family subscription?

Microsoft has determined that one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will convert to 18 days of Xbox Game Pass Family.

By making a simple rule of three to determine the price of the cost of a day by multiplying it by 31, we arrive at €22.37 in 31 days. So we can know that in general, you need to add 10 € to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription to benefit from the Xbox Game Pass Family price, or about 22 €.

Note that this is only a calculation on our part and that Micrsoft should still communicate the exact price of this new subscription in the future. If our calculations are confirmed, the subscription price of Xbox Game Pass Family should be between €20 and €25 per month. If five people share the subscription, the cost price will be a maximum of €5 per month, which is a very profitable price. Combined with the conversion of Xbox Live Gold to Game Pass, we arrive at an incredible price.

When will Xbox Game Pass Family be available in Europe and France?

Currently, this new subscription is only being launched as a test in two countries and only for Xbox Insiders members. It is not known why these two countries were chosen in particular, but it is believed that Xboxygen will follow the development of the deployment for other countries, especially in France, Belgium, Canada and Switzerland. We think it will be available by the end of the year.
