Xbox Family Plan Makes Game Pass Cheaper Than Ever

Xbox Family Plan Makes Game Pass Cheaper Than Ever

Since it debuted, Xbox Game Pass has been one of the best no-brainer deals in gaming. Xbox revolutionised the industry with its streaming service, which has performed so well, it forced PlayStation to entirely revamp PlayStation Now and urged Nintendo to update its NSO structure.

The chance to play a massive amount of AAA and indie games alike for one bulk price every month is a genius play that is so lucrative, it's genuinely a surprise that it didn't show up sooner. Game Pass now hangs over the industry with pride. For many, it's about to become an even better deal.

What Is The Xbox Family Plan?

Microsoft has confirmed that a new plan for Game Pass has started early testing in Columbia and Ireland. The idea is that it makes it easier for families and friends to share Game Pass Ultimate perks. Basically for most of us though, it should make it cheaper.

Xbox Insiders in the two areas are now able to preview the new plan that lets a maximum of five users share the same subscription to Game Pass Ultimate. Anyone added to the plan by the main user gets "their own unique access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate games, content, and benefits."

This is a good point to recognise, as it means that it's not likely that the entire account, containing all of the different users, will be limited to only one player engaging in Game Pass content at once. It means this should avoid a pretty major stumbling block if you and your mates all plan on jumping in at the same time.

 

How Much Will The Game Pass Family Plan Be?

A new video from Tom Warren has revealed a look at the service itself, which revealed that the option in Ireland costs €21.99 per month. That works out at about $22.35/£18.54 - meaning that it's likely we're looking at $23.99/£19.99 per month. Not too shabby when you divide it by five. 

For many, this is an absolute steal if you want to band together and split the cost. If you can rope your friends into the plan nicely, then you're about to get the service for even cheaper. Unlike Netflix clamping down on sharing accounts and wanting everyone in the same household to have their own (yeah right), at least Microsoft suggests it understands its player base a little better. Start rallying the squad.
