Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family Plan Pricing Details Confirmed for Ireland and Colombia

The Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family plan is now official. Microsoft has announced pricing details for the long-rumoured plan, which is now available in Ireland and Colombia. As the name suggests, subscription allows users to share their account benefits with up to four people in their gaming circle. The plan underwent an insider preview test earlier this month and now costs €21.99 (roughly Rs. 1,746) per month in Ireland and COP 49,900 (roughly Rs. 893) in Colombia.

Unlike Spotify, Microsoft doesn’t limit this feature to “real” family members by requiring users to enter their home address. In fact, the only requirement for the Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family plan is that everyone in the circle must live in the same country. The company has started testing this feature in Ireland and Colombia with fixed regional prices. All five users must sign in to Microsoft accounts or create a Microsoft account to claim benefits. There’s currently no info on how it compares to Steam’s Family Sharing feature – which, while free, will charge you for games.

All Game Pass benefits are shared across the five accounts, including hundreds of high-quality games, day one launches, Xbox Game Studios exclusives, member discounts, and EA Play membership. It is understood that the primary account holder is responsible for adding members to the group and making payments on time. This is a cheaper alternative where a group can split the total and deposit smaller amounts each month to access games. Because all accounts in the group are treated as separate entities, features like Xbox achievements, cloud saves, and game progress are uniquely tailored to each user.

Previous reports suggested that the Friends & Family plan would be slightly more expensive than Game Pass Ultimate. Existing subscribers can convert the remaining time in their membership to the new family plan time based on the monetary value of the old membership.” The company has published a formula for doing this:

30 days Xbox Game Pass Ultimate = 18 days Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family

30-day Xbox Game Pass (console) = 12-day Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family

30 days PC Game Pass = 12 days Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family

30 days of Xbox Live Gold = 12 days of Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family

30 days EA Play = 6 days Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family
The Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family plan is not currently available in India, US, UK or anywhere else in the world. Further details on this are expected in due course. In India, the Game Pass is currently available for just Rs. 50 for first time visitors, after that users are expected to pay Rs. 349 per month. Game Pass Ultimate, which bundles Xbox Live Gold, EA Play and PC Game Pass, costs Rs. 499 per month.

Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family Plan is available now in Colombia and Ireland for Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and Windows PC through PC Game Pass.
