Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family Plan Has Rolled Out in Ireland and Colombia

Microsoft has rolled out a new Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family Plan in Ireland and Colombia, a new subscription tier that allows Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to share their membership with up to four other people, as long as they're in the same country as you.

The Friends & Family subscription had been available for Xbox Insiders, but is now accessible for all users in Ireland and Colombia, presumably with other regions to follow. At time of writing, Microsoft has yet to confirm the plan for any further territories, as yet. As for the pricing, in Ireland the Friends & Family plan will set you back €21.99 a month - a standard subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate normally costs €12.99 a month.

“With the Friends & Family plan, all five members enjoy the benefits of Game Pass Ultimate, with their own unique access to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate games, content, and benefits, regardless of what device they play on,” Xbox explains. ”All the people you invite can play at the same time – you can even play together in the same game. Plus, you can include friends and family outside your household."

You can find out more in the official Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family FAQ here, but choosing to subscribe to the plan would result in a fairly significant saving, if shared between all four users. Current Xbox Game Pass Ultimate memberships can also be converted to the Friends & Family plan, with each remaining month of the subscription becoming 18 days of Friends & Family.

  • I'm guessing it's gonna be about £20/$25.
    But it's a great idea. Especially that you can play the same game together on the same plan.
  • I have two daughters and my wife. 3-4 gaming. I pay for two ultimates now. I’d get this for sure and be fine paying full price if it’s 4 plus me. Great deal.
  • Would love for this to come to the US. Would be better than paying separately for me, my wife, son, and daughter!
  • Sounds like a good program.

    The look on that girl's face in the above image had me cracking up. Whatever she did, it blew her dad's mind.
  • That is some improvement but they still have much cheaper ways to get legitimately GPU for two and if I am not mistaken a third (Xbox 360) could still utilize GWG.
