Xbox has confirmed its plans for the new Xbox Game Pass family subscription, at least in the two regions where the plan is currently available. As rumoured, 'Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family' costs €21.99 a month in Ireland, and 49,900 COP per month in Colombia.
In addition to confirmation on pricing, the sub is now available to all Xbox users in the two regions, following its limited testing phase. The subscription plan allows five 'Friends & Family' members to enjoy all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate benefits, which of course includes Xbox Live Gold access.
Microsoft has also shared information on how current, standard GPU subs will convert to the family plan option. One month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is worth 18 days of Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family, and any existing membership will be converted as such. Xbox has also confirmed that if you switch back to a single sub after being a family sub member, your time won't be converted back, in the other direction.
For now, Ireland and Colombia remain the only two regions where Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family is available, and members can't be added from other regions. Still, Microsoft says "future countries might be added in the next months", so we'd expect to see this new plan start rolling out to more regions soon. For more detailed info on the new sub, Xbox has a handy FAQ page live for all things Xbox Game Pass Friends & Family.
