Xbox Game Pass family plan launches officially: Find the list of countries and pricing

The service will be available in Ireland and Colombia for now

Xbox has launched a new plan for family and friends. But the service is limited to only Ireland and Colombia for now. The subscription will allow people to share their game pass with four others family and friends. Microsoft has revealed the pricing for only Ireland and Colombia till now and will cost €21.99 and 49,900 COP per month, respectively. Xbox has also released a FAQ on its website about how the service will work. 

Members will be added to the group by the primary account holder

The primary account holder will be responsible for the payments of this subscription and will be the only one who can add the other members to the subscription. All four members added to the subscription will enjoy all the Xbox Ultimate Game Pass benefits, including access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, Xbox Live, EA Play Membership, exclusive members discounts, and deals.

Each member will use their own account and Xbox profile to save their games and achievements. The plan will allow users to share the cost among all five members, making it a cheaper way to access all the Xbox Ultimate Game Pass benefits.

Members will have to live in the same country/region

However, there are some limitations to the plan; Primary subscribers can only share membership with people living in the same country/region. If a group member’s location is changed and no longer matches the primary account holder’s location, the group member will be automatically removed from the group. Finally, a person can only be a member of one group at a time and change groups up to two times per year.

Microsoft has not yet released the service in other countries except Ireland and Colombia. However, they have told in the FAQ that future countries/regions will be added in the coming months. The tentative price for this subscription in the US region is around $24.99.
