A Twitter user posted on her page a logo for the new Xbox Game Pass, called Friends & Family, which allows you to share the benefits of signing Ultimate with friends and relatives. Earlier this month Microsoft started testing a new tariff in Ireland and Colombia.
In the current version, the cost of new subscriptions in Ireland is Y21.99, while the price of the Game Pass Ultimate Y12.99. The price is higher, users can add up to four people to the tariff, thus sharing with them all the benefits of signing Ultimate. Microsoft has not made any statement that only family members can share the subscriptions. It is now only known that all subscribers should be on the territory of the same country.
Microsoft offers a subscription to Xbox Game Pass or PC Game Pass for $9.99 a month. None of these tariffs imply access to multi-user online opportunities. At the same time, users can choose the Game Pass Ultimate tariff for $14.99, which will allow access to the console and PC library, as well as interaction with multi-user games. It is clear that the new Game Pass Friends & Family tariff plan will offer the same benefits, but will benefit up to four people.
