Following the leak, Microsoft is about to launch its Game Pass Family subscription. The subscription will be under the name Xbox Game Pass Friends and Family.
In this article, we have mentioned the details and leaks of the Xbox Game Pass Family Plan. So without wasting any time, let’s move further.
Before proceeding further, you must know what the Xbox Game Pass is.
What is an Xbox Game Pass?
The Xbox Game Pass gives you access to more than 300 games, which you can download and play on your Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S.
If you upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you will get Xbox Live Gold, PC Game Pass, EA Play, and access to Xbox Cloud Gaming. All of these features are included for the same price.
You can download the games and play them as often as you like. As long as you continue to pay the monthly fee. Some titles might not be unavailable. However, you have the option to buy any of the collections at a discounted price tag.
The games of Original Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S are part of the game pass. The Xbox Series X|S are backward compatible. So there are plenty of top titles to choose from.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – Pricing:
Xbox Game Pass Standard:
The Xbox Game Pass Standard (Console-Only Version) costs $9.99/£7.99 a month. This version doesn’t include Gold, EA Play, or Cloud Service. The PC-only version has the same price, which is separately subscribed.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate:
The Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is priced at $14.99/£10.99 a month. This subscription can be cancelled at any time.
As mentioned before, Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass for PC, EA Play, Microsoft Cloud Service, and Cloud Gaming are included in Game Pass Ultimate.
Compared to Xbox Game Pass Standard, the Ultimate is a better deal.
Xbox Game Pass Family Plan – Logo Leaked:
For the upcoming Xbox Game Pass Family Plan, a potential logo has leaked. Also, most probably, Microsoft is going to brand this new subscription as a “Friends and Family” plan.
As Verge reports, Aggiornamenti Lumia, who previously leaked the release date of Skull and Bones and Halo Infinity campaign. Now has spotted the image, which portends a bright future for sharing in the Xbox World.

Future of Sharing:
The logo is currently in line with Microsoft’s current Xbox Insider tests in Ireland and Colombia. This will allow users to share their Xbox Game Pass Ultimate benefits and perks with up to four people within the country they live in. An important note to consider is that there is no restriction on sharing these benefits with any family members or giving a share to friends.
Currently, the Xbox Game Pass is at the price tag of $9.99/month for a console and PC. However, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes all the benefits like Live Gold, Cloud Gaming Access, and more, is priced at $14.99/month.
The price tag of the new potential Xbox Game Pass “Friends and Family” plan is not revealed. No one has an idea how much this Xbox Game Pass Family plan would cost.
In March 2022, the first report of the long-awaited Xbox Game Pass Family Plan was released. This states that the higher tier of Xbox Game Pass will allow up to five other players to join the primary account holder’s subscription. But the only condition which is a must to be followed is that the player must be from the same country as the primary account holder.
Xbox Game Pass is about to get another tier. This time Microsoft is about to add the sharing feature to its Game Pass. The Xbox Game Pass Family Plan, which is often termed the “Friends and Family” plan, will allow users to share their subscriptions with their close ones. To enjoy the benefits of this plan, all the players must be from the same country as the primary account holder is from.
That’s all. Through this plan, you can share the subscription with your family members and close friends. This plan is a great deal to watch out for. However, the price tag is yet to be revealed.
