Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription for 5 people for less than 25 euros per month? Microsoft is on its way to fulfilling the dream of many gamers.
In the video game subscription market, Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate remains one of the most profitable services, even after the introduction of Sony’s new PlayStation Plus. With hundreds of downloadable games, a mobile-compatible cloud gaming platform, and a plethora of games added the same day they’re released, it’s hard to go any further.
Yet Microsoft is about to do the unthinkable. The company is currently testing a new formula for its Xbox Game Pass that is similar to a family plan. Insiders beta testers now have access to this unique offer, but for now only in Colombia and Ireland. It goes without saying that the project is only at the initial stage.
How does the Xbox Game Pass family plan work?
But the main question the world is asking today concerns the benefits of this mysterious new offering. The family plan is actually very simple; it allows you to access all the content of an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, but on 5 different accounts – the main account in addition to the four guest accounts. As a result, you can connect to several at the same time, on different media.
This is a huge advantage for households with more than one person, be it a family, a roommate, or even a couple. It’s nothing more and nothing less than how the world already uses SVOD services, but this time for video games. It’s not for nothing that it’s been said over the years that Xbox Game Pass is the Netflix of video games.
Good value for money?
Typically offered for €12.99 per month, the family plan should cost around €22 per month, which is ultimately cheaper than purchasing two Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions. So, on the financial side, the players basically win. But still, you need to have partners with whom you can share a note.
At the moment, Microsoft has not specified whether this family plan will be available to everyone soon. Moreover, we do not know how long the testing phase will take, and especially whether the conditions of the formula will remain unchanged. We will have the core in the next few months, which will be very busy for Microsoft.
