Microsoft has taken the initiative to brighten the evening for a large number of people residing in Europe by publishing an update to the Xbox Game Pass membership on the Xbox Wire website. The refreshed service offer will soon be available for testing by the first gamers, which indicates that the Xbox Game Pass family plan is no longer a tune for the distant future.
The official information regarding the Xbox Game Pass Family Plan was withheld from us for a considerable amount of time by Microsoft; we were told that the first details would be disclosed during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022. However, Microsoft did not keep its promise. This, however, did not occur since the creators were not ready to discuss the imminent news in any further detail until August.
According to Tyler Mittleider, who works as a senior technical manager for Xbox, beginning today (August 4), players in Colombia and Ireland will be able to participate in tests that provide information regarding the new Xbox Game Pass offer. It has to do with “making it possible for a large number of individuals” to make use of the perks that come with the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate version. The use of the word “people” makes it quite clear that we are discussing a family’s plan to “accommodate” as many as four individuals.
In order to take part in the testing, you will need to sign up for the Xbox Insider program and make a purchase of the “Xbox Pass – Insider Preview.” Those who are signed up for Xbox All Access will not have access to this feature. Active subscriptions held by users from Colombia and Ireland will, with the user’s permission, be transferred over to the new Xbox Game Pass plan and their remaining membership time will be applied. Current values of the conversion factor are as follows:
The new Xbox Game Pass plan consists of 18 days of gameplay for each month of the Xbox Pass Ultimate subscription.
At this time, further information has not been made publically available.
